A preliminary probe revealed that the retired officer spotted his neighbour Pramod Kumar Shrivastava and his son Sonu Kumar Shrivastava involved in a brawl after the former protested against his drinking habit.

“Singh rushed to their house and tried to pacify them. But, in the feat of rage, Sonu knocked him down and hit him with a brick on his chest,” said an eyewitness, wishing to be nameless.

Police said Singh was taken to a hospital, where he was declared brought dead. “The body has been sent for postmortem,” the SHO said.

Police are yet to register a case in this connection. Motihari (Sadar) sub-divisional police officer (SDPO) Raj said that they are looking into the matter, and an investigation has been launched.
