The trouble began when three strangers, including a woman, approached the Manipuri couple, seeking help to book a cab as their mobile battery had drained. While waiting for the ride confirmation, one of the individuals who sought assistance started verbally abusing the man and made lewd remarks about his wife and sister, escalating into a scuffle.
As tensions rose, the accused called more people to the scene, leading to a physical assault on the Manipur couple, the man’s sister, and their family friend. The attackers reportedly pulled the wife’s hair, pushed her to the ground, and attempted to drag her.
The police responded to a call from Kilokari village around 2:30 am, taking the injured man to the hospital. The victim, a resident of Jeevan Nagar in Ashram, suffered abrasions on his knees, redness and swelling in the eyes, and swelling on the left side of his forehead. Law enforcement has registered a case under relevant provisions, and efforts are underway to identify and apprehend the attackers using CCTV footage from the area.
The shocking incident highlights the vulnerability of individuals to random acts of violence and emphasizes the need for swift and effective law enforcement to ensure the safety and security of citizens. As the investigation progresses, the incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of fostering a society that condemns violence and promotes inclusivity and respect for all its members.
