In a heart-wrenching incident, a 26-year-old man was mercilessly stabbed to death in broad daylight. The incident reportedly occurred at a shop in the Noonmati area of Guwahati, Assam. The victim, in this incident, identified as Rituparna Pegu, worked at a shop owned by Armaan Ali.

It all started on Friday afternoon when the victim reached a shop named Armaan Home Furnishing which belonged to one Armaan Ali. The murderer, Hussain Ali, was an employee at the store. A heated argument broke out between the victim and Hussain, over a chair.

Rituparna Pegu was killed by a group of five members in which Hussain Ali stabbed Pegu with a knife from behind. The victim immediately collapsed on the roadside. The shocking incident was captured on a CCTV camera installed at the shop. Rituparna Pegu was rushed to the local hospital where he was declared brought dead.
