But, the matter couldn’t be resolved.
On Wednesday, Nilesh again met Sanjay, Sudhir and Nana and they together consumed liquor. While they were consuming liquor, the topic of their quarrel propped up and heated exchanged between the friends. However, it turned fatal when Sanjay, Sudhir and Nana cornered Nilesh, and stabbed him several time with a sharp-edged weapon. Nilesh was thus, killed on the spot.

Cops performed panchanama and the body was sent to Government Medical College and Hospital for post-mortem.
