Bengaluru, May 18: In a shocking incident, three drug addicts chopped the fingers of a passer-by after he was unable to direct them to the place where they could purchase ganja in Bengaluru early on Thursday morning.

helpThe victim identified as Bimal Singh is a native of Nepal and resides in Shivajinagar in Bengaluru. It is learnt that the miscreants who were under the influence of drugs and were looking for more drugs approached the victim while he was returning home and asked him where they could find drugs. When he pleaded ignorance, the accused cut his fingers and escaped.

The victim works as a cook at a paying guest hostel in Wilson Garden. During night also, he worked as a watchman at a private building near Russell Market.

“After my night shift work, I was walking home and three men who were under the influence of drugs and alcohol came near me asking for ganja or a place where they could find it. When I told them that neither I take drugs nor do know where it is sold, the accused pounced on me. In self-defence, I pushed them back which is when one of them pulled out a knife and slashed the three fingers on my left hand. My middle, ring and the little finger have been cut. When I started screaming for help, the accused escaped on their bullet. It happened in the early hours of Thursday at around 5.30 am,” Bimal Singh said.

The incident happened near the mutton market in Shivajinagar. As the victim was near his house, locals started hearing his cries. Even his brother Mahesh Singh and friend Naresh Singh who heard the victim's cry rushed to his help and shifted him to Bowring hospital. From there, he was taken to Victoria hospital for further treatment.
