Youth stabbed to death by friends

A youth was stabbed to death by his friends in connection with a murder case in Peenya police limits late on Friday night. The victim was identified as Atif Pasha, 20, a resident of T Dasarahalli.

According to police, Atif, his friend Moula and two others were involved in a murder and the Peenya police had picked Moula for questioning, recently. During interrogation, Moula told police that Atif was also involved in the murder conspiracy. Enraged by the disclosure, Atif came to Moula’s house on Friday and picked a quarrel.

Moula contacted his two associates to his house and all three went to Atif’s house late on Friday night. They took Atif out on the pretext of discussing a matter with him. While Atif was walking on the road, Moula repeatedly stabbed him with a dagger on his chest, face, abdomen and back.

The three fled from the spot after Atif fell to the ground and started bleeding profusely, said the police. A few local residents rushed him to a nearby private hospital. The doctor’s efforts to revive Atif, who had suffered massive internal injuries, failed as he succumbed on early Saturday morning, added the police. The police have launched a search operation to arrest the three, said the police.
