The three arrested accused have been identified as Dayanand Ashok Salve (34), Umar Sharfuddin Pansare (43), and Akash Ankush Gaikwad (25), all residents of Ramwadi area in Yerawada.
At 1:30 pm on Sunday, the deceased, accused and Atul Shelke were drinking alcohol at an under-construction building premises, on the first floor, in the area.
According to police, Salve hurled verbal abuse at Shelke for littering plastic packets of eatables and empty bottles of alcohol from the building.
“They were all known to each other. One of them (Shelke) threw the litter from the place where they were sitting and the other (Salve) disagreed and that led to a fight around 1:30 pm. A few hours later they were roaming around in the same area and got into a fight again. The murder took place around 3.45 pm,” said assistant police inspector Sameer Karpe of Yerawada police station.
Shaikh was a friend of Shelke and was present with him on the first floor of the under-construction building.
The abuse led to a physical fight in which Shaikh had beaten up Salve, according to the complaint in the matter lodged by another resident of Ramwadi.
Salve, who was enraged by Shaikh, started attacking him and the other joined in.
“The complainant is a witness who was among the many people who tried to stop the fight. But they smashed his head with a stone which eventually led to his death,” said API Karpe.
