A property dealer was stabbed to death in a residential locality allegedly due to an old dispute, police said on Monday.
The incident took place near Chhathi Pokhar late Sunday night, they said. Police have identified the deceased as Manjit Kumar Yadav, 32.
Madan Prasad, station house officer (SHO), LNMU police station, said that the deceased was killed in connection with an old dispute for which a first information report (FIR) was lodged in 2021.
He said that police took five youths into custody for interrogation, and an investigation into the matter has been launched.
“My brother was returning home on his bike when he was intercepted and attacked by the miscreants with a knife. He died on the spot. Despite the local people running to his aid, the assailants fled the scene”, said Manjit’s brother Ranjit Yadav.
