Man killed for intervening in quarrel

A 26-year-old man was stabbed to death for intervening in a quarrel between two groups in central Delhi’s Karol Bagh on Wednesday night.

Police have nabbed brothers Anshul and Rohan for the crime. The older of the two suspects, Anshul, was found involved in six other registered criminal cases.

Police are yet to nab the third assailant, Yogesh, who police said is a bad character of the region.

The two brothers were involved in a fight with tea shop owner Rishipal around two years ago. The quarrel over setting up of the shop at that spot had continued on and off, said police.

On Wednesday night, Rohan, 18, arrived at the shop and pulled off a bamboo supporting a tarpaulin that covered the tea shop. One Deepankar, who owns a snacks shop nearby, decided to stand up to Rohan and objected to his high-handed behaviour.

Rohan then slapped Deepankar. One of Deepankar’s customers Narender Singh decided to intervene which forced Rohan to backtrack. He, however, threatened to return with his accomplices.

He was back with Anshul and Yogesh in no time as the three picked up a quarrel with Narender. Hearing the commotion, Narender’s brother Harvinder emerged from his home, not very far from the crime scene.

Harvinder intervened in the quarrel between his brother and the three suspects. This escalated the quarrel during which the suspects attacked Harvinder with two knives. They then fled from the spot.

The victim was rushed to Lady Hardinge Medical College where he was declared brought dead. Police have registered a case and began investigations.

Since two of the three suspects, Anshul and Rohan, were already identified, police raided their homes, but to no avail. Local intelligence led police to learn that the brothers could be found in the Mandir Marg area. A trap was laid and they were nabbed on Thursday morning.
