A 28-year-old youth was murdered by a man at Indira colony of Manimajra, after an argument ensued over a beedi.

The victim, Vikram Kumar, a resident of the same colony, was attacked with bricks and sharp edged weapons on Sunday and succumbed to injuries at PGIMER on Monday late night. He was the owner of Baldev meat shop at the colony.

The police said that the deceased’s brother, Dharminder Kumar, told police that the incident took place on Sunday evening when he along with his brother, Vikram, were having cigratte in the market after closing their shop. Then a man, identified as Arun Kumar, came up to them and asked for a cigarette but they refused to give him.

Following that, an argument ensued and subsequently Arun attacked them with bricks and sharp edged weapons. Dharminder said that he escaped from the spot to call his other brothers.

He added that when he came back, he saw Vikram lying in a pool of blood and he was taken to PGIMER for treatment. The police said that they have arrested Arun (32) on Tuesday, a resident of Bapudham colony and registered a case under Section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against him at IT park police station.
