Till late Friday evening, the victim was conscious.
Akshay Kalra was waylaid by a group of at least three persons and dragged out of his Creta on Wednesday night. The injury above his right eyebrow indicates that he was repeatedly attacked by a hard and blunt object, DCP (Noida) Rajesh S said.
A Thalassemia patient, Akshay’s condition was serious and his vitals were being monitored.
However, he expired around 9.10pm, sources said.
Meanwhile, cops continue to scan CCTV footage collected from various societies in the area and have zeroed in on a car resembling Akshay’s Creta. However, it is yet to be verified whether it is the same vehicle.
