Sujith (27) of Aroli Azaad colony was attacked in front of his family members by a group of around 10 unidentified persons at around 11.30 PM last night. They stormed into Sujith’s house and hacked him several times. In the melee, his parents and brother who tried to stop the attack also sustained injuries.

Sujith was taken to AKG hospital, but he succumbed to multiple injuries.

Following tense situation, police security has been tightened in the area.
