Youth bludgeoned to death

The victim Kaleem was a daily wage labourer and a resident of Jali Mohalla. He was found dead near his house. The crime took place while he was trying to save his girl friend from being molested, said police.

Kaleem had an affair with Bhavani (19) from the same area. On Thursday, around 4.15 am, Pasha (25), a resident of the same locality allegedly tried to molest Bhavani at knife point. Kaleem rushed to her rescue and picked up a fight with Pasha. Pasha smashed Kaleem’s head with a stone killing him on the spot, the police said.

The police are yet to record the statement of Bhavani, the lone witness of the crime. Pasha is absconding, the police said.
