Friends stopped them from arguing but the 22-year-old posted some insults on Facebook.
After Sivabala discovered the insults, he equipped himself with a samurai sword and headed to Ramesh’s blk and search every single floor and unit for Ramesh. After locating him, Sivabala pulls out his 80cm samurai sword and managed to slash Ramesh’s left ear.
The police were alerted and Sivbala fled the scene. He was later arrested on 1st of July 2017.
