Ludhiana, May 1

A 17-year-old boy who was attacked by three bike-borne armed snatchers succumbed to his injuries. The incident came to the fore today when the boy breathed his last at a hospital in Patiala this morning.

The deceased has been identified as Amandeep Singh, a resident of Giaspura. He was a student of Class X and a native of UP. His father is a daily wager.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Sandeep Wadehra said the incident occurred on April 28 when the deceased boy, along with his friend, was standing outside the mini-garden at Giaspura. Three bike-borne miscreants came and asked the boy to hand over his mobile phone else threatened to kill him. When he refused to handover the mobile, the accused attacked him with a knife.

Robbers attacked the victim on his stomach with the knife and fled. His friend immediately informed the family and the police.

The ACP said the boy was initially shifted to a private hospital here from where he was shifted to Rajindra Medical College and Hospital, Patiala. The deceased was critical and was undergoing treatment for the past three days.

Today, he succumbed to his injuries. The police said robbers were captured in CCTV cameras and a police probe was on to identify the miscreants.

A case of murder has been registered against the unknown miscreants by the police.
