Last night, two youths Adarsh Gurung and his friend were headed to Devidanga bazar, Siliguri at around 8:30 PM to buy groceries, when two guys in an Enfield and a Scooty rushed up to them and overtook them and grabbed their keys.
When Adarsh tried to stop them, the fully intoxicated miscreants gave out signal to their friends, and suddenly almost 20 men came up and attacked them.
According to Adarsh’s sister, “they broke into two groups to attack my two brothers with bamboo and rods. They fought back and attempted to run. And when the men couldn’t stop my brother one of them took a knife and stabbed him once in the face and twice in the ribs. They attempted to stab him more but my brother fended them off and ran. But they chased him. Thankfully one of his friends came up in scooty and saved his life.”
Adarsh has been admitted to the hospital with severe stab would.
According to the locals the main accused are Akhtar, Sonai, and Bholai who have been creating nuisance in the area for a while now.
A general diary has been filed, and police are investigating into the incident.
