Ballabhgarh lynching: Slain Junaid’s brother shifted to Apollo Hospital

New Delhi: Sakir, brother of Junaid who was stabbed to death in a passenger train on June 23, was shifted to the city-based Apollo Hospital on Tuesday.

Sakir was earlier admitted to the trauma centre of All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

“The boy (Sakir) was bought to Apollo today (Tuesday). Team has already been constituted to monitor his condition and provide the required treatment,” said an Apollo Hospital doctor.

Sakir’s brother Junaid was stabbed to death while he and his other brother Hashim, were injured by a mob which allegedly also hurled communal slurs against them after a scuffle over a seat onboard the Delhi-Mathura passenger train on Thursday night.

The brothers had come to Delhi for shopping ahead of Eid.
