Tejas Patil drove himself to the MPCT hospital in Sanpada on June 3 after his 28-year-old brother Monish Patil reportedly stabbed him at home while asleep.

The knife reportedly missed all major organs and arteries, including ones supplying blood to the brain. However, the stabbing caused a loss of blood.

The perpetrator is still at large, and the victim has filed a First Incident Report (FIR) for attempted murder. Local authorities are searching for Monish Patil.

The 30-year-old victim has claimed in his report that his brother was an alcoholic and kept bad company.

TOI reported that the doctors praised Tejas Patil’s “presence of mind” for rushing to the hospital with a knife in his neck.

The report said a plastic surgeon, neurosurgeon, interventional radiologist, and heart surgeon removed the knife without causing permanent damage.

The victim is reportedly out of danger and will be discharged in two days.
