A road-raging teenager has allegedly stabbed a deaf man to death in India for not moving his bicycle out of the path of her moped.
The 40-year-old hearing impaired man, who has been named by police as Sudama Lader, was cycling down a road in the Kankalipara area of Raipur on Sunday afternoon.
Upon stopping to load some groceries onto his bike, he accidentally obstructed an impatient 15-year-old girl riding with her mother on a moped.
The girl became incensed when she felt the man was ignoring the blasts of her horn and began screaming obscenities at him, but Sudama was oblivious to her outrage due to his impairment and did not move.
Moments later, the frenzied teen whipped out a blade and ruthlessly stabbed Sudama in the throat, crumpling him to the floor as blood spurted from his wounds.

Sudama was bundled into the back of a van by bystanders and rushed to hospital, but he was pronounced dead on arrival due to massive blood loss following the savage attack.
Officers from the Azad Chowk police station told Times of India that Sudama was hearing impaired and suffered from speech impediments, and had no way of hearing or communicating with his underage attacker.
The 40-year-old victim is survived by his wife. It is unknown whether he had any children.
The 15-year-old road rager meanwhile fled the scene after committing the attack, with her mother clinging on to the back of her scooter.
She was found hours later on Sunday near Hasaud temple around 12 miles from the site of the stabbing by police officers later.
Investigators said they recovered the weapon they believe was used in the stabbing from her person upon arrest.
Both the victim and his attacker were residents of Raipur.
The minor’s identity was not revealed, and officers refused to divulge information about her criminal background.
The investigation continues.
It comes after a horror ambulance crash killed the driver, its injured charge and three others when the speeding vehicle slid off the road in wet conditions in Karnataka.
In shocking CCTV footage shared on Twitter, the vehicle is seen attempting to slow down at the barrier, only to end up colliding with the booth.

At full force, the ambulance hits the employee (pictured) who could not remove the barricade in time
Employees of the toll booth are seen racing against time to remove barricades as the ambulance approaches at high speed, presumably after hearing sirens blare in the distance.
One employee successfully removes some of the obstacles, but the vehicle swerves in before another could remove the rest.
At full force, the ambulance hits the employee who could not remove the barricade in time.
The footage shakes and discolours as the CCTV camera is impacted by the crash.
The final devastating shot is of the employee lying face down and limp amid the debris, seemingly unconscious.
The accident happened in the coastal region of Udupi, which has been hit by heavy rains as India struggles to battle floods across the country.
