Man kills colleague, injures another over dispute

Nashik:A 32-year-old man was killed and another person injured allegedly by their colleague who was in an inebriated state following a dispute here, police said today.

The victim, identified as Gopalprasad Gupta, was yesterday beaten to death and his colleague injured with a wooden stick by their co-worker Uday Bharati alias Baba, police inspector Anil Pawar said.

The two injured were admitted to a hospital where Gupta succumbed to his head injury, he said.

All the three men had been working as waiters in a hotel at Adgaon Naka on Mumbai-Agra National Highway here since a long time and the attack was the fallout of an old enmity, police said.

Meanwhile, police have launched a search for Bharati, a resident of Allahabad in UP, who is absconding.

A case under sections 302 (murder) and 307 (attempt to murder) of the IPC has been registered with Adgaon police in the matter, the Inspector said.
