The old rivalry took the worst turn on Tuesday night. Around 11.30 pm, Rakesh Ramteke was standing in front of his house situated in Republican Nagar, Barakholi, Indora. At the same time the three accused were reportedly creating nuisance under the influence of liquor. When Rakesh asked the rampaging accused to leave the place, they started a wordy duel with him. The hot exchange of words soon turned into a bloody brawl when the three accused attacked Rakesh with wooden rods and hockey sticks.

After the murderous attack, the accused trio fled the spot and went absconding. Tension ran high in the area following the grisly murder.
