RAJKOT: His heart pained seeing little children being mercilessly beaten by a man. But the Good Samaritan paid with his life when he tried to convince the thrasher to spare the kids.
The incident took place in Morbi town where the victim Ajit Parmar and his friend Hussein Vora, who were going in a rickshaw to buy food, saw a man thrashing some children near a petrol pump. The duo stopped their rickshaw and requested the man not to beat them.
But the assailant, who is yet to be identified, directed his fury at the duo and first stabbed Parmar. He then attacked Hussein too. Parmar was badly injured and Hussein suffered stab wounds.
However, a profusely bleeding Hussein immediately picked up Parmar, seated him in the rickshaw and drove him to the Morbi Civil Hospital. By the time, they reached the hospital, Hussein too was soaked in blood,
Parmar, 24, fell unconscious as soon as they reached the hospital and died some time later.
Hussien, 23, was referred to Rajkot Civil Hospital as his health deteriorated and his condition is said to be critical.
Parmar lived in Vankarvas while Hussien was a resident of Lilpar locality in Morbi town.
