22-yr-old loses kidney, suffers ruptured liver as robbers hit him
A 22-year-old man was brutally assaulted with a concrete block by three men who allegedly tried to snatch his valuables near the Sector 9 Chowk around 11pm on January 9 , police said Friday, adding that the man sustained severe injuries to his internal organs and doctors had to remove his left kidney to save his life.

Police said the trio, one of whom was 14 years old, was nabbed by Sector 10A crime branch team from Basai Chowk on Thursday.

According to the police, Ayush Kumar Anand (22) was returning home from his office when he was attacked. Police said the three suspects were on a scooter and they intercepted Anand, who was walking home after work, in an attempt to rob him of his mobile phone and other valuables.

Investigators said Anand ran towards his rented accommodation which was nearby to save himself. However, the suspects gave chase and assaulted him after getting hold of him, they said.

Angry that Anand had forced them to give chase, one of the suspects picked up a concrete block lying on the roadside and hit Anand hard in the abdomen causing his life-threatening injuries, police said.

“They succeeded in snatching the phone after he fell unconscious. He kept lying on the road for more than 40 minutes. A commuter helped him reach home but his condition was critical.Seeing his condition, Anand’s uncle Pawan Kumar Singh, who lived with him, rushed him to a private hospital in Sector 7 and informed the police,” he said.

Anand’s father Manoj Singh, who rushed from Bokaro, Jharkhand, on hearing about his son’s assault, said doctors had no option but to remove his left kidney as it had ruptured, giving rise to a severe infection.
