Nagpur: Asking for pending dues, gave a harrowing experience to a 22-year-old youth, when his friend attacked him with rounds of knife near Juna Bagadganj area under the jurisdiction of Nandanvan police in the wee hours of Friday. Cops have booked accused Rishabh Mendhe (20) a resident of Nandanvan slums in this connection.
According to police sources, complainant Palash Ravi Kavre, a resident of Juni Mangalwari, had lent money to Rishabh, who is his close friend. However, whenever Palash asked Rishabh to pay back his money, he bluntly ignored resulting in frequent arguments between the two.
On the intervening night of Thursday and Friday, Palash again approached Rishabh demanding his money. This time, Rishabh called Palash at an isolated palace near Juna Bagadganj, and told him that he should forget the money as he was not willing to pay it. This sparked another argument between the two and soon it turned into fight, where both hurled abuses and manhandled each other.
During the fight, Rishabh whisked out a knife from his rear pocket and attacked Palash repeatedly. He then fled the spot leaving profusely bleeding Palash on the spot.
Palash then lodged a complaint with Nandanvan police on the basis of which the cops booked Rishabh under Section 307 of the IPC and began the probe.
