New Delhi: A 23-year-old man was killed allegedly by his elder brother today in southwest Delhi’s Chhawla area as he suspected him of having illicit relationship with his wife, police said.

Rakesh Kumar was killed by his elder brother, Pramod (25) in the wee hours today after he hit him with an iron rod on his head, a senior police officer said.
