A final-year student of physiotherapy at Jamia Millia Islamia was allegedly stabbed Monday in the university hostel during lunch hours. Mohammad Danish was admitted to AIIMS, with wounds on his arm and thigh, but returned to the hostel by night.
“Danish was attacked with a knife by a man wearing a black T-shirt and blue jeans. His face was covered, and he first attempted to stab Danish’s left thigh from behind. But when Danish resisted, his hand also got slashed,” said Shahryar Ahmad, a fellow hosteller. Jamia Media Coordinator Ahmad Azeem said: “He was taken to the university dispensary and later to AIIMS. An FIR has been lodged at Jamia Nagar police station.”
