A man was beaten to death allegedly by some persons here in a vicious case of road rage in the capital, police said on Tuesday.

Jitendra Singh, a small-time property dealer, lost his life after he was thrashed by four motor-cyclists following an altercation in south Delhi late Monday night.

Singh, said to be in his late 20s, was a nephew of former Delhi Mayor Sukhbir Singh and a resident of Lado Sarai near Mehrauli.

It was not immediately clear what provoked the attack, but police dubbed it as "another case of road rage" on the capital's streets.

"We have arrested four persons," Deputy Commissioner of Police (South Delhi) Anil Shukla said without revealing their names.

In another accident, five schoolchildren were injured when the van carrying them collided with a SUV in northwest Delhi on Tuesday morning.

The children were students of Sarvodhaya Vidhyalaya. While four of them were discharged after administering first aid, one is still in hospital.

The SUV was ferrying employees of Airtel, police said, adding its driver, identified as Deepu, has been arrested. The accident took place in Rohini locality.
