A case of attempted murder was registered at the Sarthaa police station after the victim’s father, Vitthal Pansuriya, filed a complaint.
Police officials informed that Ketan Pansuriya, a resident of Mahalakshmi company in Sarthana, borrowed about a year ago Rs 70,000 from his friend Bhautik Bhesaniya who is a pawnbroker. Ketan works as a diamond polisher in a local unit and lives with his family.
Vitthal said in his complaint that Bhesaniya threatened Ketan for non-repayment of the loan. On Friday evening, Bhesaniya went to Pansuriya’s house and asked Vitthal to send Ketan to meet him at the company’s main gate. After a while, a neighbor informed Vitthal that someone was beating his son.
As Vitthal rushed to the company’s main gate, he saw Bhesaniya stab Ketan and run away. Vitthal and his neighbors rushed Ketan to a nearby hospital. The doctor on duty advised that Ketan was in critical condition after being stabbed five times in the stomach.
After being informed, the Sarthana police also reached the hospital. Police have charged Bhesaniya with attempted murder and are continuing the investigation.
