An argument over buying curd claimed the life of a young electrician in outer Delhi when two men, including a teenager, allegedly stabbed him to death.
This is the third incident of death caused due to sudden provocation in the Capital in the past two days — on Tuesday a boy was killed for denying two men a tool and a 41-year-old man because of argument after collision of two cars.
The incident took place in Samaipur Badli around 9.30pm. The victim Mukesh Kumar, 21, lived in the same locality.
Kumar and his nephew Rahul, 17, had gone to a shop where they had an argument with 19-year-old Naval Kishore, the ITI student and Nitin Aggarwal, a mobile shop owner.
The two groups had gone to the shop to buy curd.
“Kishore and Aggarwal went together. They asked the shopkeeper for curd. When the shopkeeper enquired about the quantity he wanted, Kishore replied they want whole the curd that is available in the shop. When the shopkeeper asked them what they would do with all that curd, they replied they can throw it in the drain for all he cared and it was none of his business to ask. That is when the deceased intervened and asked them why they were harassing the shopkeeper,” said deputy commissioner of police (outer) Chhaya Sharma.
At this, Kishore got enraged and started abusing Kumar.
“Aggarwal held Mukesh and Kishore brought a screwdriver from a nearby house where some wood work was on, and attacked Kumar,” the DCP said.
Policemen patrolling the area arrested Kishore and Aggarwal.
Kumar was taken to Ambedkar Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
