The deceased, identified as Salman Khan, was visiting his relatives in Jyoti Nagar on Saturday. In the evening, Salman stepped out with his friends. “He was standing near a two-wheeler when three men on a motorcycle arrived. While parking the bike, they hit Salman on his leg and his bike. When he protested, the three entered into an argument with Salman, which soon turned into an ugly fight,” a police officer said.

Within minutes, one of the three men took out a knife and stabbed Salman twice. As Salman fell on the road and began screaming for help, the attackers fled on their motorcycles. Salman’s friend immediately informed his family members and the police about the crime.

“He was immediately rushed to Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital where he succumbed to injuries,” the officer added.

Salman lived with his parents and five siblings in Zakir Nagar in south Delhi’s Jamia Nagar. Salman’s father Naiullah Khan runs a canteen at a local engineering college. Salman and his elder brother Aamir, 24, helped their father at the canteen, the police said.

Police have registered a case of murder and are looking for the suspects whose identities have not been established, sources said. Investigators were also looking for clues from CCTV footage and by speaking to eyewitnesses to ascertain the identity of the assailants.
