The United States has three medals right now, including a gold medal from 17-year-old snowboarder Red Gerard on Saturday night. Norway also took silver medals in Biathlon and Ski Jumping and Bronze medals in Speed Skating and Ski Jumping.

Afterwards, some youths are seen lifting an unconscious Dileep on to a motorbike and rushing him to the hospital.

They had also identified one of the attackers as Vijay Shankar Singh, a travelling ticket examiner with the Railways. He is believed to be in Varanasi. The man who recorded the attack and another witness are heard saying in the video, "The police will turn up only after he is dead". Call it police negligence or no fear of the law, the inhumane acts committed by people scar us even more with the sheer brutality of it. The restaurant manager had reportedly dialled the police helpline but did not get a response.

The police, inexplicably, are yet to contact the person who shot the video.

Meanwhile, Allahabad SSP Akash Kulhary has suspended three policemen on charges of dereliction of duties.Kulhary said several police teams have been formed to nab the accused. "I was hit with chairs too, but I managed to escape", said Prakash Singh, one of Dilip's friends and an eyewitness in the case.

Saroj and his friends had gone out for dinner at the restaurant, the police said.
