Don’t refuse an offer from this drunk punter

A party goer allegedly flew into a drunken rage and hacked up a passerby who refused to drink with him in Kratie’s Chet Borei district on Friday night.

Police said that the suspect, 45, was drinking beer with a group of men when a villager, 38, walked past the party.

The suspect asked him to come in for a drink but the villager refused. Insulted, the partygoer grabbed an axe, hacking at the villager’s hand and body.

The victim was hospitalised. The suspect was arrested and confessed to the attack, saying he was too drunk to control himself.
