A drunk goon cut off three fingers of a PU student in a fight at Bakshi Garden near Cottonpet Sunday night.
Ruban, (18), is admitted at the Victoria Hospital. Accused Prabhakar is absconding.
According to the police, around 9:00 pm, when Ruban was standing along the road, intoxicated Prabhakar came by and questioned Ruban why he was standing there picking up a quarrel. He then took out a knife and attacked Ruban. Ruban held his hands up to stop the attack, but the knife slit three of his fingers. Soon after, Prabhakar fled.
Ruban’s parents approached Cottonpet police and initiated action.
They told the police that the accused was an alcoholic and a drug addict.
