WITHIN ONE hour of the New Year setting in, a youth was killed by three brothers in Bapu Murai Colony on Aerodrome Road. All accused, who were inebriated at the time, have been arrested. The main reason appears to be nothing more than a desire by the accused to show off that they ruled the roost in the area.
According to the police, Ishwar Singh, his brothers Kallu and Bharat Singh and their friends had hired a local DJ to celebrate New Year. As the partying was going on in front of their house, Raju Khushwaha came and stood by to see what was going on. He entered into an altercation with one of the brothers and soon the brothers stabbed Raju with a knife. Though he was rushed to hospital for treatment, he was declared brought dead.
At the time of the incident, the police were out on the roads to keep a watch on New Year revelry. They reached the spot and arrested the three accused, who were drunk even at the time of their arrest.
