A drug addict allegedly attacked an elderly man, Shamsher Singh (60), in the Shaheed Udham Singh Nagar area here today, leaving him badly injured. The victim was admitted to a private hospital with bone fractures in his arm and legs.
Amarjit Singh, his son, said they had lodged a complaint with the Sultanwind police station in this regard. Giving details, he alleged his father was coming out of the house after lunch when the assailant attacked him with an iron rod. He hit him on his legs and arms and later fled from the scene.
He said the accused nursed a grudge against his father who had got him admitted to a de-addiction and rehabilitation centre through his links. Shamsher Singh motivated the accused’s parents to get him admitted to the de-addiction centre a couple of months ago. He alleged that the accused fled from the centre and attacked his father.
Neeraj Kumar, SHO, Sultanwind police station, said he had received a complaint and he would get the matter investigated.
