Four arrested for murdering youth

Four people were arrested on Monday for the murder of a youth on December 21 at Roshan Nagar in DJ Halli.

Chota Shahid (25), Chennai Shahid (30), Albaz (22) and Taufeeq (22), all residents of Roshan Nagar, murdered Rizwan Sheikh (22) for demanding his silver chain back from Chota Shahid, Deputy Commissioner of Police (East Division) Ajay Hilory said.  

On the day of the murder, Sheikh went to Chota Shahid's residence and created a scene as he demanded his chain. An angry Shahid returned with four of his associates to attack Sheikh, who was busy preparing for his older brother Irfan's wedding, scheduled for the following day.  

Shahid called Sheikh for a talk, but assaulted him with three of his associates. In a fit of rage, he stabbed Sheikh's chest with a knife and fled the scene.

Sheikh was rushed to a nearby hospital and was later shifted to Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries, the police said.

The four youngsters confessed to the crime during interrogation on Monday. The police produced them before the court on Tuesday, and the accused were remanded to judicial custody.
