Merchant Stabbed near Central Market

22 August 2009

A merchant was stabbed near the Central Market in the city, just opposite the police outpost near Kalpana Sweets stall, on the night of Friday August 21, by four unidentified persons. Ibrahim (30), who was seriously injured in the incident, is being treated in the intensive care unit of a private hospital here.
The incident occurred in the heart of the city, even when the ban order imposed by the district administration is in force and the police personnel have been keeping a tight vigil. Ibrahim, who runs a vegetable shop opposite Roopavani Talkies near the spot where the incident took place, was going home at about 8.30 pm on his motor bike, when four strangers stopped him near Kalpana Sweets and escaped after stabbing his back with sharp weapons. The motor bike of Ibrahim was found lying at the spot of the incident, and the Bunder station policemen have taken it to the police station.

As the district administration has asked all business establishments in the city to be closed by 8 pm, Ibrahim closed his shop early and was going home. The accused reportedly ran towards Bibi Alabi Road after stabbing Ibrahim.

It is said, an attempt to assault an auto rickshaw driver took place late night on Friday, near the Central Railway Station here. It is said, the alert driver succeeded in anticipating the attack and escaping unhurt.
