The sources revealed that the shopkeeper Hanumana Ram, a native of Rajasthan who works at the shop in Calangute was attacked by the Russian national with a knife on his hands and neck making him grievously injured. When Russian guy attacked him, Hanumantha was walking towards the shop with the milk packet in hands said the sources. Presently Hanumantha is undergoing treatment at GMC in Panaji.

Bagaram and Mukesh were initially admitted to Candolim PHC and then referred to GMC. They are safe and have been discharged from GMC, claimed the sources.
According to the local cable TV channel, the victims have no clues as why the attack took place on them at first place since they do not know the Russian national who staged the attack on them. Out of three victims the shopkeeper got seriously injured due to the cuts on his neck. According sources, two victims were discharged from GMC after the initial treatment.
After attacking all three, the Russian national took the bike of a shopkeeper and fled to Aguada where he parked the bike and went for the bath in the sea. Police got the tip from locals that the bike is parked at Aguada. Acting swiftly on the tip Calangute police went to Aguada with the team of 15 policemen and arrested the culprit.
According to police sources, the accused was in mood of escaping into the deep sea after observing the police coming to arrest him, but Goa Police managed to pull him out of the water with the help of locals. “The accused is being interrogated. All the three injured were shifted to a private hospital and their condition is stable,” the official said.
This is not the first time that any Russian national had attacked the local people. The Russians were lately found involved into fights with the locals on various occasions but this time it went out of the limits with the attack on innocent people with no valid reason. Police may need to exercise little more stiffness in this case to make sure that nothing such happens again in the state.
The accused is under interrogation in the police custody and soon the motive behind the attack will get surfaced. Please leave your comments on this serious issue.
