The victim, Sujit Ghosh, a teacher of Helna Sushunia School, went out for a morning stroll to the forest area. As he loves photography, he took a camera along with him. When he was taking a
photograph inside a small forest situated close to Palashtala area some unidentified miscreants suddenly pounced on him and beat him up.
They snatched his camera and broke it. The victim somehow managed to free himself from their clutches and came out of the forest. He was admitted to Bankura Sammilani Medical College and Hospital.
