Yet another shocking video of a murder attempt in broad daylight has emerged from Hyderabad. The incident took place close to the Azampura branch of the State Bank of India (SBI) under the jurisdiction of the Chaderghat police.
In the video, a group of people can be seen gathered outside an eatery on a busy road, as two men are engaged in a brawl. One person takes out what appears to be a knife and stabs the other person repeatedly, as bystanders attempt to intervene. All this, as the victim is seen screaming in pain.
The victim, identified as Afzal, was rushed to the Thumbay Hospital nearby before being shifted to the state-run Osmania General Hospital (OGH), with severe injuries.
Speaking to TNM, Chaderghat SHO G Nagaraju, said, "It took place at around 1 pm. The victim Afzal and accused, Rafae, had an old enmity and a grudge was the reason for the attack."
The police said that investigation was underway and further details would be revealed soon.
In September last year, a man was hacked to death in public in Hyderabad's Attapur road near Pillar 140 of the PV Narasimha Rao expressway that leads to the city's international airport.
Visuals of the incident showed the victim lying on the ground and being attacked with an axe 13 times even as vehicles passed by.
In November, yet another similar case was caught on camera as a man was hacked to death and scores of bystanders watched on, in a busy street of Hyderabad’s old city.
The police said that the former case was a result of gang rivalry, while the latter was the result of a heated argument between two individuals over a personal matter.
