A 16 year-old boy was stabbed by a group of four men last Thursday night.
The men came on motorbikes when the victim was near Fen building on Ameenee Magu, a person familiar with the victim told Minivan News.
”There were some friends of the boy nearby,” he said, ”but before they could help him, the attackers fled.”
He said the victim was stabbed once in the back and that he was not seriously injured.
”The attack on the boy was not because he was looking for a fight. It was a random attack,” he said. ”When they see anyone of us alone, they will come and stab that person. It doesn’t matter even if he is a friend.”
He said that the gangs have been fighting with each other for a long time, and sometimes stop for a while, but the battle is never really over.
The victim was admitted to Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) for treatment.
One suspect has been arrested, says police sergeant Abdul Muhsin.
Another 19 year-old man was stabbed in Mahchangolhi during broad daylight last Wednesday.
The man was stabbed four times, said a person familiar with victim.
”He had a deep cut in the back and injured lungs. His left arm was cut very seriously when he tried to block an attack aimed at his head,” said a friend of the victim.
The victim stabbed on Wednesday night told Minivan News that he was attacked on his way home.
”I was near Petral teashop when I met an old friend and he called out to me,” said the victim. ”I stopped to have a chat with him.”
Suddenly a crowd circled around and stabbed him in the back three times, according to the victim.
”Then they all ran away,” he said. ”I was unconscious till I reached hospital.”
When they reached the hospital, he fainted and when he gained consciousness he could not breathe properly because he had been stabbed in the lungs.
He said that his attackers used a normal knife, ”but it had a very thick blade.”
”I do not know why they stabbed me,” he said.
