A 32-year-old man was beaten to death by two young men after he protested against their urinating on his wall in west Delhi, police said.
According to police, the man identified as Gurvinder, living in Vishnu Garden, Khyala, in west Delhi, died of severe head injury after he received repeated blows on the back of his head with a wooden stick during a scuffle with his neighbour Manoj Yadav and his friends.
“The incident occurred last evening when Gurvinder and his brother Palvinder saw Yadav’s friends, Rinku and Vivek, urinate near the main gate of their house,” said a senior police officer. “What started as an argument soon turned into a scuffle.”
Police said Yadav operates a nickel-slicing workshop below his residence.
Police said Gurvinder and his brother were attacked with wooden sticks, which the other group had got from Yadav’s house.
“They started hitting them with the wooden sticks wounding the brothers. One of them was saved by the onlookers,” said the officer.
Gurvinder was rushed to DDU Hospital where he was pronounced brought dead.
Rinku and Vivek ran away from the spot and are yet to be apprehended.
Police said Yadav and Palvinder are injured and recovering. “We have registered a case against Yadav,” said the officer.
According Delhi Police data, the Capital saw some bizarre murder cases in 2009 as far as motives are concerned.
Among these figure cases like a man murdering his neighbour because the former had kicked his dog at Ranhola village in Outer Delhi.
In another case, a man was killed for breaking the queue at a public toilet in Civil Lines. In New Friends Colony in South Delhi, a man was killed for refusing to let another person make a call from his cell phone.
