RAUTAHAT: A teenage boy who was injured in a knife attack died in the course of treatment in Rautahat district, on Monday night.

The deceased has been identified as Nandakishor Ram (18) of Brindaban Municipality-3 in the district.

Local resident Ravi Ram (19) allegedly stabbed his neighbour Nandakishor with a knife after consuming some ‘substance’. Nandakishor, who suffered critical injuries in his abdomen, was rushed to Chandrapur-based Apollo Hospital where he succumbed to injuries, at around 9:15 pm on Monday, according to police.
