NEW DELHI: Two brothers were brutally stabbed by a group of men in Dwarka’s Bindapur area on Sunday night after they had objected to rash driving in the locality.
While Suraj Prakash, 30, died due to injuries, his younger brother Chandar Prakash, 28, is in critical condition.
This is the third case of stabbing in the national capital in the last three days. A 25-year-old woman was stabbed to death while resisting a chain-snatching bid in northwest Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar area on Saturday, while a teenager was stabbed for allegedly opposing three youths who were stalking his sister in southeast Delhi’s Kalkaji area on Friday.
