Man tries to fight off robbers over Rs 500, stabbed twice by them

A 46-year-old man was stabbed by two youths for resisting to part with Rs 500 cash in south Delhi’s Defence Colony on Monday night.

The victim managed to walk in an injured condition to a nearby hospital, from where he informed police.

The victim Ravi Dutt Sharma is a resident of Agra in Uttar Pradesh and was in Delhi for the past few weeks to attend to his brother Beniram, who is admitted at Moolchand Hospital for treatment.

Beniram lives in Nanakpura and owns a small sweetmeat shop.

His brother having slept off, Sharma decided to take a walk outside the hospital at 11 pm. As he was walking through a dark stretch, two youths allegedly confronted him and ordered him to empty his pocket.

But Sharma decided to offer resistance. Even as he caught hold of one of them, the other pulled out a knife and stabbed him twice in his stomach. Sharma was forced to loosen his grip on the other man.

The two suspects then emptied his pocket and fled from the spot with Rs 500.
Sharma had left behind his mobile phone at the hospital, because of which he could not call anyone for help.

He then walked some distance to the hospital, where the staff noticed his injury. Police were informed and the victim admitted there.

A case has been filed, but the suspects are yet to be identified, police said.
