MANGALURU: A 10-year-old boy was stabbed by unidentified miscreants at Thotal near here on Monday.
Razik, son of Mayyaddi of Jalli Cross in Kairangala in Konaje police limits, is undergoing treatment at a private hospital.  
Police sources said the boy was walking towards his home from a madrasa when two motorcycle-borne youths stopped, asking him for directions.

When Razik was about to answer them, the pillion rider allegedly stabbed him in his hand and the motorcycle sped away. The incident took place even though there are prohibitory orders in the district following a spate of stabbing incidents.

On November 10, an RSS activist Ram Mohan was stabbed by miscreants on a bike while two youths - Nawaz and Sameer - were similarly stabbed on Saturday.
While the police are clueless about the knife-wielding bikers, people of the area are worried about the safety of their families, particularly youngsters who have been the intended victims.
The attackers are targeting only youngsters of two communities and there is fear that it is an attempt to foment communal violence.

Two youths were earlier detained don Monday for carrying lethal weapons at Thoudugloli. They have been identified as Yathi alias Sharatha Kumar (23) and Dhanush (23), sources in Konaje police station said.
A case has been registered at Konaje police station.
