“Investigation is still on, but it will be properly done when this man survives.

“That is why we keep discouraging the youth from taking laws into their hands especially when a person commits offence like this.

“If they had brought the person to us, he would have told us the reasons he had to do this to his family members and he would have faced the law.

“But in this case, a lot of money is being spent to revive him.
