Hyderabad: Grand Snooker Parlour manager attacked by rowdy gang at Dabeerpura in Old City at midnight on Wednesday. Three assailants entered the parlour minutes before the manager was about to close the center and attacked him with knives and baseball bats indiscriminately.

Based on the CCTV footage, the assailants were identified as Messy, Amir and Haider who are rowdy-sheeters and had undergone jail term several times in the past.
