Saraswathipuram police have arrested two software engineers on charges of attempt to murder.
On Sunday, police arrested Mohit, 23, a resident of Kesare, and Tamilarasu, 23, both employees of a private company, for attempting to kill rowdy-sheeter Abhishek by stabbing him on March 2. Abhishek is a resident of K R Mohalla in the city.
Police said that the duo stabbed Abhishek after an altercation broke out near All India Institute of Speech and Hearing (AIISH).
Abhishek and his accomplices forced the engineers to move their two-wheeler away but when the latter resisted, the duo was assaulted.
In a counter attack, the engineers stabbed Abhishek with a knife, police said. Abhishek is undergoing treatment at a hospital.
