A man was attacked with swords by a juvenile and his friends on Sunday night. The attack was to avenge the complaint against the juvenile and his friends. Around a fortnight back, Prakash Mathur of Sector 14 spotted some youths indulging in drugs with a child offender in an empty house near his house. There were around 15-20 youths, hence Prakash gathered a lot of people there and the councillor of the area also reached the spot upon information. Police also reached and arrested all of them. This juvenile was also arrested and since that day he had developed an animosity towards Mathur.
On late Sunday night, he reached Mathur’s residence along with others and attacked Mathur with swords. Mathur’s son came to save his father and got injured in the process. Mathur’s family shouted for help after which public gathered around his residence. Meanwhile the juvenile escaped with his friends. Before leaving they broke the scooty lying outside the house. A case of attempt to murder has been registered against all the attackers.
As informed by the councillor of the area, there are around 15 houses in the area which are lying vacant. These have become the centre of illegal activities like drugs consumption and buying and selling of drugs. People had complained a number of times and were agitated that no action was taken against this.
