Peacemaker assaulted

Kiran (26) was lucky to escape with minor injuries. He feels that he was mistaken for an alleged rowdy from Kathriguppe with a similar name.

According to police, Kiran and three of his friends Sandeep, Kitta and Anil were at a hotel near Richmond Road for a party when there was a row between two groups of college students.

Kiran and his friends intervened and were trying to pacify them, when one group summoned some more of their friends and attacked Kiran with a lethal weapon. He was
 immediately rushed to the hospital and was treated as outpatient. Some of Kiran’s friends said that they did not understand why the suspects attacked Kiran without any reason and expressed displeasure over identifying him with the rowdy-sheeter.
