A college student was arrested on charges of attempted murder after he allegedly stabbed two of his friends over an old rivalry at a birthday party in Sector 15 around 3am on Saturday, police said.
The accused, identified only as Jammu native Varun, shared a paying guest (PG) accommodation with the two victims, Ankush and Yash. All three are students of Sri Guru Gobind Singh College (SGGS), Sector 26, along with Ashish, whose birthday it was.
Ashish, a native of Himachal Pradesh, had invited Varun, Ankush and Yash to celebrate his birthday around midnight on Friday. Ankush and Yash, who too hail from Himachal, were stabbed with the knife used for cutting the cake, and were stated to be in critical condition at the PGIMER.
