One of his friends and also a co-worker, Ankit, played a practical joke on him by releasing high-pressure air into Pintu's rectum via the air pipe of the compressor, according to the police.

This caused severe pain in Pintu's stomach.

Some co-workers rushed him to the Meerut Medical Hospital.

Doctors reported his condition to be critical as they say the lower part of the large intestine that comprises the sigmoid colon and the rectum has been perforated due to compressed gas.

He was operated upon and was later admitted to the ICU.

Police have registered a criminal case for voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means against Ankit, the accused.
