A youth was allegedly stabbed by a neighbour near KMDA housing complex at Charu Chandra Place East, Lake Gardens in south Kolkata on Saturday evening. The injured youth has been identified as Ritesh Banik. He was first taken to MR Bangur Hospital and later shifted to a private hospital in Dhakuria. Police arrested the accused neighbour Dipak Biswas and two of his relatives.
"The accused's family lives next to the place where youths gather and chat in the evening after work. They often get into altercations after asking the youths to move away. There was a similar altercation on Saturday around 8.30 pm when Dipak lost his control and came out with a kitchen knife and stabbed Banik from behind," said a senior police officer.
