Three unidentified assailants stabbed an insurance agent in front of his house in Bachittar Nagar of Jamalpur area on Sunday morning. The incident was captured in a closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera installed near the house.

The victim has been identified as Uday Kant, 52.

The CCTV footage showed three men on a motorcycle stopping near his house. Two of them talk to the victim briefly and as soon as he turns to go inside the house, they stab him with sharp-edged weapons.

On hearing Uday Kant’s screams, his family came out and rushed him to a nearby hospital, which referred him to Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh.

Avdhesh Kumar, son of the injured, said that around 5.30am when his father was standing outside the house, a bike stopped near him. Three men on a bike came near his father and talked to him for a few seconds before stabbing him and fleeing the spot.

Jamalpur station house officer (SHO) inspector Harjinder Singh said that prima facie it appears that the accused are known to the victim and the matter seems to be of some old rivalry as the accused did not snatch anything. The police will record the statement of the victim soon, he said.
