Bengaluru: In a shocking incident, a young man was mercilessly beaten up and stabbed on the streets of Karnataka but no one came to his aid, apart from his friends.

NDTV reported that Dhanush, while standing at a bus stop in Hassan, was allegedly staring at a young woman on Tuesday evening.

Angered by Dhanush's act, two men approached him and got involved in a verbal fight with him.

Dhanush then spoke to his brother and two friends on phone and called them for help.

The verbal quarrel soon turned into a fight between the two groups.

During the fight, Dhanush's brother Sudeep was stabbed by someone from the other group.

A video footage of the incident shows him bleeding profusely but none from the people standing at the bus stop came to his help. They just watched and filmed the incident on their mobile phones, as per reports.

The fight stopped only after police reached the spot.

An FIR has been filed and five men have been booked and arrested, police said.
