A Indian delivery man is fighting for his life after being stabbed more than 20 times for the late delivery of a smartphone. 

The man Keshav, 28, was delivering the phone for online retailer Flipkart in Delhi, India when a 30-year-old woman allegedly attacked him, local media reports. 

He is fighting for his life in a nearby hospital in a critical condition, India News reports. 

It's alleged the woman's brother tried to intervene when she became angry but she persuaded him to help her with the attack.

The pair allegedly stabbed the man more than 20 times and stole more than $800 from him before they dumped him near a drain.

The siblings have been charged with attempted murder and intentionally hurting while committing robbery.
