A group of four people attacked a 20-year-old carpenter with a knife and bamboo sticks on Friday. When the victim’s mother and sister intervened, the accused attacked them with the knife too.

The incident took place in Malwani area of Malad (West) at gate number 7. The victim, Shafique Siddique, had a dispute with one of the accused.

On Friday, around 9.30am, Siddique was near a hair dressing salon when the four men accosted him. One of the accused, identified as Taslim Qureshi, was armed with a knife.

As the duo had some personal enmity, there was a heated verbal exchange between the two men. As the fight escalated, Qureshi and his accomplices cornered Siddique. They started thrashing him with bamboo sticks while Qureshi stabbed him in the stomach with a knife.

When Siddique’s mother and sister rushed to the spot after being told of the incident, the accused attacked them too. Siddique’s mother Kamrunnisa, 45, and his sister, Nishad, suffered slash injuries on their arms.

The four accused fled the scene before the police arrived. The Malwani police registered a case of attempt to murder against Qureshi and his three accomplices, following Kamrunnisa’s complaint.

Siddique is admitted in a hospital. On Saturday, the Malwani police traced Qureshi, who owns a mutton shop in the area. The police also arrested two other accused who attacked Siddique. The trio was placed under arrest and produced before a local magistrate court.
