Crime news: A bizarre incident came to the fore in the national capital in which a momo vendor allegedly stabbed a customer twice on his face “with an intent to murder” after the latter sought extra chutney (red sauce) in Shahdara's Farsh Bazar area, police said Thursday (January 11). The victim, identified as Sandeep, was rushed to the Hedgewar Hospital where he is undergoing treatment for serious facial injuries. The momo vendor, Vikas, fled from the spot after the incident. According to the police, Sandeep stated that he went to buy momos from a roadside cart on Wednesday evening when the incident occurred.

How did the incident happen?

After buying momos, he asked the cart owner to give him more chutney, to which the latter said that it was in limited stock and cannot be given in extra quantity. An argument broke out between the two soon after, after which Vikas allegedly stabbed Sandeep in his face twice and ran away, the police said.

An FIR was registered for attempt to murder and a police team formed to nab Vikas. He was later arrested from the Farsh Bazar area on Thursday morning, the police said.

Police said Sandeep runs a small mobile charger-making unit in Bholanath Nagar in Shahdara.
