Brothers bashed up by road rage rowdies

In an incident of road rage in the national capital, four youths attacked a Delhi University student and his brother with baseball bats in north-east Delhi’s Jyoti Nagar, police said Saturday.

Javender Singh and Jainender Singh, who live with their parents at East Gokulpuri, told police that that Dinesh, Anuj, Kapil and Vimal -- had attacked them at street number eight of block ‘D’ of Gokulpuri Thursday afternoon.

Nineteen-year-old Javender, studying BA in PGDAV College in Lajpat Nagar, told police that he was riding a bike with his brother Jainender on the pillion.

In the narrow street that they were riding, four youths stood, leaving no space for vehicles to move. Javender honked and asked them to move. “But the honking infuriated the youths so much that first they abused the two brothers and then attacked them with baseball bats,” said a senior police officer.

Javender said Dinesh slapped Javender on his face and instigated others to attack them. Meanwhile, Vimal and Anuj brought two baseball sticks from their shops and Kapil and Dinesh held the two brothers tightly.

Vimal first hit with the wooden stick on Javender’s neck and stomach. Then, Anuj held Jainender and Dinesh attacked him at his waist and legs. Meanwhile, a passerby informed police about the incident.

Seeing the police, all the four assailants fled from the spot. “We rushed the brothers to Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital where there condition is said to be out of danger,” said the officer.
Before fleeing, Dinesh threatened to kill the brothers if they complained to police.

A case under sections 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt) and 341 (punishment for wrongful restraint) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered against them at Jyoti Nagar police station.
