Boy refuses to bring cigarettes, face slashed

A 16-year-old boy’s face was slashed with a blade for refusing to bring a cigarette from a shop in south Delhi’s Ambedkar Nagar on Saturday night.

The suspect, believed to be in his 20s, remains unidentified.

Police have gathered the details of his appearance from the victim and have launched a search for him.

The incident took place while the victim Rajesh was returning to his home in Madangir area after a visit to a friend’s home.

On the way, a youth seated by the roadside stopped him and asked him to bring a cigarette for him from a nearby shop.

Rajesh refused saying he needed to get back home quickly.

This infuriated the youth who tried to bully Rajesh after that. The boy decided to stand up to the man who suddenly pulled out a blade and slashed across Rajesh’s face.

Assailant flees
Rajesh let out a cry which drew the attention of some locals. The assailant, however, had fled by then.

The boy returned home and narrated his ordeal to his parents who rushed him to a hospital and informed police.

He was treated and discharged.

A case based on Rajesh’s statement was registered at Ambedkar Nagar police station and investigations taken up.

Police said they are questioning some residents in the area where the crime took place in a bid to identify the suspect.
