A I PUC Commerce student of Osteen College was attacked by a group of youths, including some suspected to be his seniors, near his college in Chamarajpet police station limits on Thursday.
The victim, Zabiulla, 16, son of Nayaz, a cab driver, is a resident of Goripalya.
It is said that some senior students were involved in the case and they attacked him with a helmet before fleeing the scene.
Zabiulla, in his statement to the police, said that after classes, he had gone to get his bike parked near the college. He was not allowed to park his bike inside the college by the security guard over a trivial issue.
Three unidentified youths came near his bike and demanded his wallet and mobile phone. When Zabiulla refused, they started beating him with a helmet. He, however, managed to escape. Two other youths chased and stabbed him with a sharp weapon.
Zabiulla, who escaped with minor injuries, rushed to the local police station and filed a complaint and the police admitted him to Victoria Hospital, where he was treated in the OPD and was discharged later.
In the statement, he also said that he had never seen them before, the police added.
The college authorities ruled out any ragging to have taken place.
Speaking to Express, Osteen College administrator Usha Reddy said, “The youths who have attacked Zabiulla are not our students. But one of our students, Pawan, who was detained by the police, was at the spot when the incident took place.” The incident is suspected to be a robbery.
