According to the police the murder took place around 8 pm following an argument between Anmol and his three friends. Police said, following the heated argument, one of the three boys took out a knife and stabbed Anmol a few times. Locals and neighbours told police that seeing Anmol bleed, the trio fled from the spot.

Local residents called up the police and reported the matter.
