As the techie screamed at the motorcyclist, the latter stopped and looked back. When the techie went up to him and reprimanded him for not following traffic rules, he assaulted him with a sharp weapon. 

Seeing him getting assaulted, his friends who reached out to help him initially thought that assailant had just punched him and fled the spot. However, they found that the victim was bleeding profusely and rushed him to hospital in Hadapsar.

Although the victim has refused to file a complaint, the police is carrying on with its investigation. They have already made an entry of the crime in their records. The police have also obtained the CCTV footage of the area to confirm the registration number of the motorcycle.
