Three unidentified men allegedly killed a 53-year-old man at Kalyan, after he overtook their car on Wednesday night.

The victim, Asad Galib Sayyed, 53, was a Nashik resident. He worked at a private firm and had come to Kalyan on official business. He and his colleague were riding a bike near Durgadi bridge in Kalyan when the incident occurred. When Sayyed’s colleague overtook the car, this angered the driver and his friends, who sped up ahead and blocked his path. They got out of the car and started abusing Sayyed. He asked them not to abuse and to talk politely, which angered them further. The men pushed Sayyed’s colleague, who fell on the road. They then pushed Sayyed, who fell 7 feet off the road, landed near the creek and injured his head. Following this, they fled.

Sayyed was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was declared dead.

Police said they were examining CCTV camera footage of the nearby shops and talking to locals to trace the accused. “Sayyed’s body has been sent fora post mortem. We have informed his family about the incident. We will question them to find out more about Sayyed. We suspect that the three accused are Kalyan residents,” said an officer.

“It is not a case of murder. The accused pushed Sayyed, who fell on the rocks and hit his head. He started bleeding profusely. We booked the three men under section 304(2) of the Indian Penal Code. No arrests have been made yet,” said a senior inspector from the Bazarpeth police station.
