Tension gripped Faizpur Ninana village in Baghpat after a Hindu boy was brutally attacked by a Muslim youth from the village, seriously injuring him. Sandeep Dudhiya, a Dalit youth from the village, is battling for his life after one Muhammad Feroze slit his throat with a sharp knife.
According to reports, Sandeep Dudhiya, the son of Ombeer Dudhiya, had gone to the fields to fetch grass on Saturday, but after some time he returned to the village covered in blood. Blood was oozing out of his neck when he ran towards the village, after which he was immediately rushed to the district hospital by his family. But given the seriousness of his injury, he was referred to a better medical facility after giving him primary aid.
In the meanwhile, the family members of the victim have lodged a complaint with the police, accusing Muhammad Feroze of the crime. However, immediately after attacking Sandeep, Feroze fled the village. While police had reached his place to nab him, he had already disappeared.
A video has emerged on social media, which shows Sandeep reaching the village after he was attacked in the fields. His entire body was covered in his blood, and a cloth was placed at his neck to prevent further blood loss. In the video, the victim seemed to be unconscious.
