New Delhi: A 24-year-old Delhi University student was stabbed in his eye by unknown persons while on his way to his hostel, police sources said Tuesday.

The incident was reported from Mukherjee Nagar last night and the victim has been identified as Mayank Mani Tripathi, a student of the Law Faculty. He is a resident of UP's Gorakhur.

Tripathi was returning to the hostel at around 9 pm when some men picked up a fight with him and then stabbed him, sources said adding he may lose eye-sight.
