NEW DELHI: A 22-year-old man was allegedly stabbed by a person over an old enmity in northeast Delhi's Nand Nagri area, police said on Friday.

A video of the purported incident is also being circulated on social media. In the video, the person is seen attacking the victim lying on the road and then fleeing the spot with no attempt from onlookers to intervene or help the victim.

On Thursday at 10. 37 pm, a PCR call was received and the caller informed police that his brother was stabbed and was taken to GTB Hospital. The injured was identified as Kasim (20), a resident of Sunder Nagri.

The injured has not yet given any statement and he is feeling drowsy, police said.

He has been referred to the AIIMS Trauma Centre. A case under section 307 (attempt to murder) of the Indian Penal Code is being registered. Accused Sohaib (22), who is also a resident of Sunder Nagri, has been apprehended, they said.

A preliminary investigation has indicated that a previous enmity between Sohaib and Kasim led to the incident. Around two years ago, Kasim had allegedly punched Sohaib in the face over an issue between them, causing damage to his eye and leaving him with a nose defect that used to irritate him.

Sohaib had been nursing a grudge against Kasim since then, police said, adding that the matter is being probed.
