Pramod (20), a native of Kerala, was allegedly stabbed to death by his roommate Sanoop (21). The police said the two men were working for a builder and were staying at a rented place.
On Tuesday, Sanoop was humming a song and cutting vegetables, when Pramod tried to irritate by singing another song. Sanoop turned around and ordered him to shut up. When Pramod continued, an angry Sanoop rushed towards Pramod, and the knife he was holding in his hand accidentally pierced Pramod’s torso. A profusely bleeding Pramod was taken to Baptist Hospital but later he succumbed to the injury.
