A 30 year-old-man was stabbed with a sharp object by a group of miscreants at Mussalam Jung bridge when he reportedly foiled their attempt to misbehave with his pregnant wife.

The police said that Ramakrishna, a tailor from Achampet in Mahboobnagar district, came to the city along with his wife five days ago. The woman is pregnant and is taking treatment at the Government Modern Maternity Hospital at Petlaburj. The couple are staying on the hospital premises.

On Sunday night, the couple went to the river bed to answer nature’s call when Ramakrishna noticed a group of persons going in the same direction. The man waylaid the miscreants to stop them from going further after which one of them attacked him with a sharp object, Shahinyathgunj SI Shanker said.

The couple immediately fled the place and approached a few persons near the City College who in turn informed the police. They were later shifted to Osmania General Hospital for treatment. The police registered a case under Section 307 (attempt to murder) of IPC against the miscreants and are making efforts to nab them.

Girl found dead

A five-year-old girl, A. Kirtana, who went missing five days ago, was found dead in an open compound at Katedan on Monday morning, the police said.

The girl was playing in front of her house at Tatanagar in Mylardevpally when she went missing and a case was registered at Mylardevpally police station. The parents of the girl, Parmeshwar and Bhavita, who hail from Bihar, are daily wagers.
