Man beaten to death at railway station, public turns blind eye

New Delhi: A 20-year-old man was allegedly killed by three men in public view at the Subzi Mandi railway station in north Delhi, police said on Friday.

The accused have been arrested, they said.

According to police, Rahul, who worked as a loader at New Delhi railway station, had borrowed Rs 1,500 from Ravi over two months ago and not returned it.

On Thursday, Ravi confronted Rahul, who was at the Subzi Mandi railway station, which is close to Azadpur Market, where the victim’s mother had a vegetable shop.

Ravi asked Rahul to return his money but he sought more time. An enraged Ravi called his friends, Lalit and Rajender, and the trio then thrashed Rahul at the station in full public view, the police said.

Rahul tried to escape but they chased him down and hit him hard. When alerted, a police team reached the spot and rushed Rahul to a hospital where the doctors declared him dead, they said.

Police said they soon swung into action and held the three accused men.

They also said that no one from the public who witnessed the crime intervened in the matter at the railway station.
