In a road rage incident at the main entrance to the Government Multi Specialty Hospital (GMSH), Sector 16, around midnight on Friday, two unidentified motorcyclists stabbed two men in a Toyota Innova as the SUV tried to enter the hospital main gate from the wrong side of Sector 15-16 roundabout.

The victims Kamal Verma (26), a resident of Sector 41, and Kunal Kapoor (20), a student at a private engineering college, have been admitted to GMSH-16 in a critical state.

They were to visit a relative at the hospital when they ran into the motorcyclists, who blocked their path as their car was on the wrong side. In a fit of rage, the bikers stabbed them multiple times with a knife they had been carrying, witnesses have claimed.

“My brother Kamal and his friend had gone to visit a friend Kapoor Singh admitted to the hospital. They were stabbed at the entrance to the hospital. It was relatives of Singh, standing outside the emergency gate, who heard their screams and rushed in to help or they would have been stabbed to death,” said Gaurav Verma, brother of Kamal. Gaurav runs Laxmi Jewellers in Sector 45.

Sector 3 SHO Neeraj Sarna said they had recorded the statements of the victims and a case under Section 307 (attempt to murder) had been registered against unidentified people at the Sector-3 police station.

“It appears to be an incident of road rage. We have procured CCTV footage and the miscreants will be identified soon,” the SHO added.
