The two men were caught after a brief chase by some police personnel who arrived there as soon as they received a call about the quarrel.

The accused are Manish Tiwary and Ashwani Kumar, both residents of south Delhi's Masjid Moth near South Extension-II. Sources said the two are third-year students of Bachelor in Computer Application (BCA) at a Delhi University college.

A senior police officer said that Keshav, a resident of Gautam Nagar, was going home in his Hyundai i10 car when the incident took place. Preliminary investigation revealed that he was driving in a narrow lane when the accused, riding a Hero Honda CBZ motorcycle, started honking from behind.

"He ignored them and kept driving. This enraged Tiwary and Kumar who somehow overtook him. They stopped their motorcycle in front of the car and challenged Keshav to come out," said the senior officer.

An argument broke out between them which soon turned ugly. In the melee, Tiwary took out a knife and attacked Keshav. A passerby called the police and a PCR van arrived there within minutes.

"Keshav pointed at the duo who was trying to flee. We nabbed them after a brief chase. They were found to be under the influence of alcohol. We arrested them on the charges of attempt to murder," the officer added.
