Two held for attempt to murder in Chandigarh

Chandigarh, May 19

The UT police today arrested two persons for allegedly thrashing two residents of Sector 29.

A team of Inspector Jasbir Singh, SHO at the Industrial Area police station, nabbed Shohib Ansari, alias Rahul (20), a resident of Indira Colony, Mani Majra, and Ajay, alias Jaddu (26), a resident of Sector 29, from a hotel in Kajheri village, Sector 52.

Cops said the accused had planned to escape to Uttar Pradesh and were arranging money for the same.

The knife used in the crime has been recovered. Both accused were produced in the court, which sent them to judicial custody. The police said an assault case had already been registered against Ajay at Baddi, Himachal Pradesh.

The victim, Wasim Ahmed, had stated that Shohib and Ajay thrashed him over an issue in Sector 29 on May 17. They fled as he raised the alarm. Wasim then called his friend Asif to drop him home. As they reached near his house, the accused came there and attacked them. Asif, who was stabbed around nine times in neck and stomach, is battling for life at the PGI. — TNS
