What Really Happened In Industrial Area, Chandigarh?
KV Shukla, the father of the stabbed victim Abhishek Shukla ruled out the possibility of a hate crime and told the media that his son was a very noble man and had no enemies. Although, he suspected that the stabber might be a guy named Guddu who was caught robbing their house a few months ago and was put into jail on Abhishek’s complaint. The Chandigarh police though ruled out this possibility because Guddu was still serving jail time. Abhishek was the eldest of the four siblings and left behind three sisters. His father works in a courier company in sector 47, Chandigarh.
Abhishek was working as a salesman in one of the stores in Elante Mall, industrial area, Chandigarh. He was walking back home around 11:00 PM towards the poultry farm roundabout when two attackers intervened and stabbed him multiple times near his heart. What was earlier called a sharp weapon has been confirmed to be a vegetable knife which has been recovered by the Police from the crime spot.

The Chandigarh police found Abhishek’s phone and wallet intact and came to the conclusion that robbery, as suspected, was not the reason behind the stabbing.
