The police have booked the six accused on charges of attempt to murder. The accused attacked the victim with iron rods modified with sharp cutters last Wednesday. They also filmed the entire incident. However, the incident came to the fore on Sunday when the video of the incident went viral on social media, officials said.

Cops have arrested Kuldeep Singh, a resident of Sunam, while the other five accused, including the main accused Mani Singh, resident of Jagatpura Basti, Amrik Singh, Lavi Singh, Malkeet Kaur and Gopal Singh, all residents of Sunam, are absconding.

Cops said that the accused are facing multiple cases under Excise Act. The main accused, Mani Singh, is facing a total of 10 FIRs, and out of them, three are under Excise Act.
