Road rage: 25-yr-old stabbed to death
Angry men follow victim on motorbike to take revenge
Ved Yadav, 22, a resident of Ambey Garden in Libaspur, was held after Siraspur Colony-resident Kishan Kumar was killed.
“Ved’s motorcycle had collided with an autorickshaw resulting into damage of his motorcycle. When Kishan and three others on the autorickshaw refused to compensate for the damage, he took out a knife and stabbed Kishan,” said B S Jaiswal, deputy commissioner of police (outer).
In a statement to police, Kishan’s friend Rajender Yadav said that they along with friends Dinesh and Ajit were going towards Samaipur Market in an autorickshaw when the incident took place at around 7.30 pm on Wednesday. When they reached Samaipur Chowk, a motorcycle collided with their autorickshaw.
Four men on the motorcycle demanded compensation for the damage to the motorbike but they were pacified after locals intervened.
Later on, when Kishan and his friends reached near Annan Jal Restaurant, the four men came on their motorcycle and started beating them.
“One of the men then stabbed Kishan who sustained stab injury on the left side of rib cage. He was taken to Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar Hospital, but was declared brought dead,” Jaiswal added.
During the course of investigation, teams were deployed to search for a blue motorcycle with broken front mudguard. Intelligence was gathered that Ved was using a motorcycle with damaged front mudguard and visor damaged.
Ved was detained and on sustained interrogation revealed that he along with Sandeep, Batul and Monu had attacked Kishan.
“Ved’s accomplices are absconding and efforts are on to nab them,” Jaiswal said.
Ved is a driver by profession, but due to lure of easy money, also commits petty thefts and snatchings.
