A businessman from Dalu, Niku Saha sustained injuries after he was allegedly attacked by a gang of three people.
The incident took place on Monday at about 9 pm. The entire episode was allegedly captured on CCTV, which is currently being inquired into by the police.
As per reports, the three miscreants were armed with a dao and there were no signs of forced entry into the premises of Saha before attacking him. They however fled quickly after attacking the businessman.
