SHILLONG | Feb 18:
A 30-year-old man was seriously injured after being roughed up by a group of miscreants at Jaiaw in Shillong on Tuesday afternoon.
The victim, identified as Pranchal Ch Nath, a local distributor suffered a fractured nose and swollen face and was rushed to a hospital in the city and later discharged.
According to Nath, he had gone to one of the shops, as usual, to collect money when a group of three men appeared out of nowhere while he was outside to received a phone call. The miscreants then started abusing and punching him, forcing him to run towards the shop and the owner chased the guys away.
However, a while later, when he stepped out of the shop, another group of around fifteen boys surrounded him and started assaulting him brutally.
“More than the assault, what pained me the most was that nobody came forward to help me despite the fact that many of them know me,” Nath said.
Till the filing of this report, no FIR has been filed by the family members.
