Delhi Police's Crime Branch will soon initiate an investigation into the death of a 66-year-old man, who was allegedly shoved off by a constable during an argument with his son in south-west Delhi two days ago.

Following the incident, police had yesterday handed over the investigations to Crime Branch from local police.

The deceased Anil Kumar was travelling in a car with his son Mohit Arora (32), both residents of Geeta Colony in east Delhi, when the incident took place on Tuesday night in Delhi Cantt area.

According to the victim's family, Anil Kumar had developed some uneasiness while travelling and Mohit had stopped the car to fetch some water.

They claimed he approached police constable Vikram Singh for help but he was on phone and ignored the request. Mohit then fetched water himself and on his return entered into an argument with the policemen.

The father tried to intervene and was allegedly pushed away by the constable. Kumar fell on the ground and lost consciousness, the family alleged.

The elderly man was rushed to Safdarjung Hospital where he was declared brought dead.

"Medical authorities on preliminary examination have not indicated any external injuries on the body of the deceased," police said.
