Bhopal: A 24-year-old youth lost his life while saving his uncle on Wednesday afternoon. What seemed like an incident of road rage turned violent and a life was lost when four accused after assaulting a man were returning and they bumped into youth and his uncle.
They were allegedly hurling abuses and when uncle of the victim objected, they attacked him with a knife. The youth died after he was stabbed in broad daylight near his house by four men who had first attacked his uncle. According to Aishbagh police, the deceased Unes Khan was a resident of Morarji Nagar.
He was about to join a job on compensatory grounds at the Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) in his father’s place, who had died while working for BMC. On Wednesday afternoon Unes and his uncle Abdul Tejeeb were walking towards the latter’s home which lies in the same area.
Meanwhile, four men arrived on a bike and one of them attacked Tehjeeb with a knife but he blocked the blow with hand. Unesh intervened and tried to resist the assailant but instead he attacked Unesh on his neck. Seeing this, the four miscreants left the area leaving the duo in pool of blood.
The duo was then rushed to Hamidia Hospital where Unesh died after an hour. An FIR has been registered but in his statement Tehjeeb has failed to name the accused. They were four in number and were on bikes, is all he told police. Aishbagh SHO Ajay Nayar said that the accused are on the run but will be identified soon.
