In what could be termed as a shocking crime in the national capital, a 29-year-old man was allegedly stabbed to death and his two brothers were injured on Tuesday during a quarrel that erupted after they objected to loud music being played by their neighbour in northwest Delhi’s Mahendra Park area, police said.
The deceased has been identified as Sushil, a resident of Sarai Pipal Thala in Mahendra Park area, they said. Police said they received information about the clash around 3:15 pm on Tuesday.
Sushil and his brothers Sunil and Anil, who got injured in the incident, were rushed to Babu Jagjivan Ram Memorial (BJRM) Hospital where they are being treated.
The victim’s brother Sunil, who is undergoing treatment, told the police that loud music was being played at the house of one Abdul Sattar. When they asked Sattar, a garlic trader in Azadpur Mandi, to turn down the music, a clash took place between them and Sattar and his four sons — Shahnawaz, Aafaq, Chand and Haseen — attacked them, police said.
Shahjahan, the wife of Sattar, was also injured in the quarrel and admitted to the BJRM hospital. Based on Sunil’s statement, police has registered a case against the accused. Sattar and his two sons — Shahnawaz and Aafaq — have been arrested, while Chand and Haseen are on the run, the officer said.
Sunil and Anil have been shifted to Safdarjung Hospital for further treatment. Police said Sushil had previous involvement in criminal cases and smuggled liquor. He is survived by his wife and a son. The post mortem will be done at BJRM Hospital.
