Man crushes mechanic to death with boulder, arrested

In the process, Mubarak fell down. Imran then picked a boulder and crushed his head, police added. The victim died instantly of excessive bleeding. The suspect also assaulted Saif-ur-Rahman, a friend of Mubarak’s who had tried to stop the fight, said police who later arrested Imran. Rahman is undergoing treatment. The victim ran a puncture shop in Bellandur.
