The youth, Lima Sut Sung, was under the influence of alcohol when the incident took place. One of his friends, Naroma, was with him at that time.
"After the incident, he, along with his friend, cooked up a false story for free treatment at the hospital. They said they were taking a stroll in a deer park when two assailants passed lewd comments on the girl. When they protested, one of the assailants attacked the youth in his abdomen. But all of this turned out to be false when we investigated the matter," said a senior police official.
During investigation, police found some discrepancies in their statement and questioned them, their neighbours and friends. During interrogation, both of them revealed the original story and said that they had a fight, because of which Lima had stabbed himself. They withdrew their case later.
