He is the third person from the North-East to be attacked in the capital in the last two weeks. According to the police, he was returning from work around 4 am when some men snatched his mobile and then stabbed him in the stomach.
"Prima facie it seems to be a case of robbery. The men tried to snatch his mobile and when he resisted, they stabbed him and fled from the spot," a police official told PTI.
On Sunday night, two boys Manipur were allegedly beaten with sticks at a south Delhi neighbourhood. The incident happened less than two weeks after the death of Nido Tania in what his friends described as a racist attack. Nido's post-mortem report says he died of severe lung and brain injuries from an attack inflicted upon him in a South Delhi market.
The incidents have led to a national debate on discrimination against Indians from the North East.
