Majid sustained injuries on his left arm and right hand. He then called the police with the help of some passersby. The cops reached the spot and rushed him to a local hospital. The criminals managed to escape before the police arrived on the scene.Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Gautam Budh Nagar, Love Kumar said the police have recovered the assailants’ car.
