Law student thrashed to death over parking issue

In yet another incident of fight over parking space, a 22-year-old law student was allegedly killed by five students of the same college in east Delhi’s Karkardooma. Two persons have been arrested for the murder.

The victim Ayush Kaushal was a fourth year law student at Ideal College of Management in Karkardooma. He first had a scuffle with some other students of the same college on Wednesday after they ordered him not to park his car at a particular place outside the college.

The conflict was amicably resolved the next day as the other group “apologised” to him.

“But two youths, Tanuj Tiwari and Amit Nagar, could not digest the humiliation and picked up a fight with Kaushal again at around 12:30 pm on Friday outside the college,” said a senior police officer.

Along with three other students, Tiwari and Nagar thrashed the victim with bare hands for two-three minutes and fled the spot.

Mere spectators

A large group of students allegedly watched but did not dare to intervene. Police said no weapons were used in the murderous assault.

Kaushal was first admitted to Dr Hedgewar Arogya Sansthan by his friends. His parents soon got him transferred to Max Hospital. Police claimed that they were informed of the incident by hospital authorities. “He was declared dead on Saturday morning. He was put on artificial respiration in the hospital’s intensive care unit, but serious injuries on his chest led to his death,” said police.

Police arrested Tiwari and Nagar from Khichripur and Vaishali areas, respectively, on Friday. Both are first year students in elementary teacher’s training course at the same institute. Police have registered a case of murder against the five accused and search is on for three other accused.

The victim, son of a businessman, lived with his parents in Faridabad. Police said the victim was a heart patient.
