Mangaluru, July 15, 2015: A youth from Thoominadu in Talapady who was on way home from work, was reportedly stabbed by two unidentified bike bound men near Talapady on July 15, Wednesday night.
The injured person has been identified as Pradeep (26). Sources said as always Pradeep who was an employee with Corporation Bank had alighted the bus and had asked his brother to get his bike. Just when he was walking past a lane through Devipura, two men who came by a bike stabbed him with a knife before fleeing the place.
Pradeep’s brother who as usual arrived by a two-wheeler was aghast on seeing Pradeep in a pool of blood and rushed him to a private hospital at Tokkottu.
The motive of the attackers is not known. It has also been gathered that the victim was not involved in any organisation.
Here, it is worth recalling that six persons sustained injuries on the night of July 13 when locals intercepted and damaged a car after suspecting that those inside the car were involved in robberies.
