Kolkata: Thrashed by some youths for daring to protest against the teasing of his daughter, a man from Malda district died at a state-run hospital here on Sunday.

According to police, Gopal Adhikari, who was bashed up for standing up against the 3-4 eve-teasers who regularly taunted his daughter on way to school, was referred to the SSKM Hospital in the city from Malda as his condition turned serious two days back.

While Adhikary passed away today, his wife, also beaten up by the goons who barged into their house on Tuesday afternoon and started beating up the couple, was in stable condition after treatment at a Malda hospital.

One of the main accused, who had also allegedly tried to take photo of the girl on his mobile phone, was arrested by police after the incident, while manhunt was on for his accomplices.

The arrested accused was produced before the district court yesterday.
