Man stabbed to death by neighbours, 1 arrested

New Delhi: A 23-year-old man was allegedly stabbed to death by three brothers, living in his neighbourhood, after he had filmed them making obscence at his family members in South Delhi’s Neb Sarai area, police said today.

The victim’s brother claimed in his complaint to the police that the accused identified as — Neeraj, Jeetu and Ankit often used to take bath in their balcony, which is in front of the former’s house, and made obscene gestures at his family members.

The issue escalated after Neeraj and his brothers were asked not to do so but when they did not relent, the victim, Suraj, recorded a video of their activities and shared it with people of the area, which angered the three brothers, a senior police official said.

Last evening, Neeraj was out with his mother when he saw Suraj showing the video to some boys. Neeraj then confronted him along with Jeetu and Ankit.

A quarrel ensued between them following which the accused allegedly attacked Suraj with knives and scissors, leaving him critically injured, he said.

Suraj was rushed to the AIIMS trauma centre where doctors declared him brought dead, the official said.

A case was registered and Neeraj arrested while a hunt is on for Ankit and Jeetu, who are absconding.
