A 26-year-old youth was assaulted with sharp-edged weapons twice within 24 hours, second time inside the premises of a local hospital, police said.

A 26-year-old youth was assaulted with sharp-edged weapons twice within 24 hours, second time inside the premises of a local hospital, police said.

 They said  four people stopped Pardeep Sharma in  Vijaypur area and attacked him with sharp-edged weapons last night at about 10 pm over an old rivalry. After the incident, parents of the injured youth took him to accidental hospital Vijaypur, where sources said, he was again attacked by same assailants today.  

After preliminary treatment, the youth has been shifted to Government Medical College and Hospital (GMC&H) Jammu, where he is undergoing treatment.  

Out of the four accused, two have been identified by police as Vikas Salathia alias Vicky and Sahil Sharma alias Gilka, both residents of Gurha Morh, Vijaypur.

As police are yet to arrest any of the four accused, today, locals blocked the Jammu-Pathankot National Highway near Vijaypur in protest for about one and half hour causing heavy inconvenience to the commuters.

After Additional Superintendent of Police-Aadil Raja and SDM Vijaypur-Ravinder Sharma reached the spot and assured arrest of assailants at an earliest, the protest was called off.
