Scrambling hard to nab the killer of Indian student Nitin Garg who was stabbed to death here, Australian police on Wednesday said a teenage boy, who was a regular customer at the restaurant where the victim worked part-time, could possibly give some vital clues about the incident.
21-year-old Garg was killed in a park at Yarraville suburb on January 2 while he was on his way to his part-time job at Hungry Jacks restaurant.
A teenage boy, who was a regular customer at the restaurant, is believed to have told another person that he saw a number of men fighting at the park on the night of the killing, Victorian Police detective, Inspector Steve Clarke, told a press conference here.
Garg, after being stabbed, had staggered to the Hungry Jack's outlet at the corner of Somerville and Geelong roads and died a short time later.
Clarke said the teenager may hold the key to solving the case.
"He mentioned that there were a number of men fighting, including possibly a Hungry Jacks staff member, and describes one of the men as being Caucasian and around 16 or 17 years of age," he said. "We haven't spoken to that person (teenager) and we're keen for him to come forward."
