A fight broke out between two groups of youths at a KSRTC bus stand in Hassan city, 185km from Bengaluru. Lethal weapons were being used during the fight even as hundreds of passer-by turned mute spectators. The entire incident was even recorded by a bystander on his cellphone.

The Hassan Police came into action and arrested three persons after the video of the attack went viral on the internet. According to the police, the public reaction was shocking as no one tried to intervene or even took courage to call police.

Hassan SP Rahul Kumar Shahpurwad said that the fight lasted for at least eight minutes but the public just watched them and didn’t informed the cops.

The cops, however, reached the spot only after 10 minutes and rushed the injured to hospital, Shahpurwad said, adding, three youths were arrested and other accused is still absconding. The video has also been examined by the police.

The incident took place at the KSRTC bus stand on Mysuru Road at 4:35 pm when a quarrel picked up between Sunil, who lives in Vijayanagar, and Dhanush from K Byadarahalli village, police said. Sunil, who was in an inebriated state, and his friend Naveen questioned Dhanush about a girl and then attacked him. According to police, they did not have any enmity previously and that they were strangers.

Dhanush then called up his brother Sudeep, who arrived at the spot with three friends. As an argument between the two groups started, Sunil stabbed Sudeep in the abdomen and tried to flee. The rival group then caught and thrashed him, police said. Sudeep, though injured, attacked both Naveen and Sunil. The KSRTC staff rushed to the scene and alerted the police.

Sunil and Sudeep were then taken into custody and were rushed to a government hospital. All the youths involved in the incident are under the age of 25. Police on Wednesday said that Sudeep’s friends Ganesh, Hanumegowda and Dhanush, while Naveen is still at large.
