Sangrur, August 16

A drunk man allegedly attacked his wife with a sickle in a market in Sunam before he was overpowered and thrashed by locals.

"After a tiff with Veerpal over some petty issue, her husband dragged her out of the house, tied her hands and legs and took her in his modified motorcycle to the market. No one helped her," said Amarjeet Kaur, mother of Veerpal. As Veerpal bled in the vehicle, Ajaib kept on drinking liquor and announced that he would teach her a lesson. When locals tried to intervene, Ajaib started threatening them also. Later, locals called the police. Despite assurances from the police to resolve the situation, Ajaib neither allowed people nor cops to come near him for more than 30 minutes. When he started attacking Veerpal with a sickle, passersby pounced on him and thrashed him mercilessly.

"Had the cops not intervened, the people would have killed him. Our PCR and other cops tackled the situation carefully. Had they acted in haste, Ajaib would have caused more serious injuries to Veerpal," said Mehtab Singh, ASP, Sunam. The police took both Ajaib and Veerpal to the Civil Hospital.

"Ajaib is an alcoholic and was not having cordial relations with his wife for past some time. Veerpal is under treatment at Sunam while Ajaib has been referred to Patiala. We have registered a case against him and conducting further probe," said Jatinderpal Singh, SHO, Sunam. — TNS
