In the scenarios of dark matter (DM) with a non-minimal dark sector, we revisit a new detection strategy of observing two or three simultaneous signals from inelastic scattering of a boosted DM . The relativistically incoming DM can scatter off inelastically to a heavier unstable dark sector particle which decays back in to the DM associated with visible Standard Model particles inside large volume neutrino detectors. The existence of the secondary procedure renders us to separate it from conventional neutrino scattering background. The relativistically incoming DM can come from the universe by the annihilation of heavy DM component in an inelastic boosted DM scenario or produced by the beam bombardments in fixed target experiments.
