A 55-year-old man was killed and seven members of his family injured on Sunday when a group of men attacked them at their home in outer Delhi’s Mangolpuri.
Police said the attackers were neighbours of the victim’s family. Four of the accused were arrested by Monday and efforts were on to nab two others.
According to the police, Sunday’s attack took place after the 55-year-old had an argument with his neighbour over honking and not giving way to his motorcycle on the road.
The arrested accused were identified as Veerpal, Sourabh, Prem Singh alias Lala and Hari Kishore.
The deceased, Jhansaram, lived with his family in Mangolpuri’s E-block and worked as a house painter.
“We registered a case under relevant sections of the IPC and arrested four accused. Investigations into the matter are underway,” said Vikramjeet Singh, DCP (outer).
