While he was walking on the street the five local men standing in the road side near Dwarka market unconditionally attacked him and stoned at him at his nose and got severe injury. The five men altogether attacked the helpless person as he felt down on the ground unconsciously for 2 minutes. When he became conscious he found out that his mobile phone and the vegetables were taken away by the culprits and they have already left the incident place. He then hardly reached home with bare hand and wounds. With the help of the neighbor refugees he approached to the nearby private clinic at Chanakya place and got medical treatment.

On the next day he went to SLIC and YMCA for help, since he was unable to identify the culprits, legal action cannot be taken by the SLIC and no complain was submit to the police. The YMCA provides some medicines. At 2:00 pm he approached to the Woman Protection Center at Asalatpur, but unfortunately he could not meet with the officer, saying that the officer is not available.
