Uluberia, April 13: A tragic incident unfolded in Uluberia, where an 18-year-old boy, Bapan Manna, was fatally stabbed in the early hours of Friday. The incident reportedly occurred after Manna’s elder brother objected to two locals, identified as Akash Jana and Sagar Jana, riding their bikes noisily through the Kalabagan area in Chengail.

According to TOI, the disagreement escalated into a fight, which was eventually resolved, according to police. However, later that night, when Manna’s brother did not return home, Manna went out searching for him around 2.30am. It was during this time that Akash and Sagar allegedly spotted him alone on the road and attacked him with a knife. UP Shocker: Man Impregnates Class 9 Girl Student, Kills Her After She Refuses for Abortion in Varanasi; Arrested.
