Nagpur: A youth who tried to intervene in a scuffle between his brother and two other persons was assaulted murderously by the duo in Dhantoli area here on Sunday night.
The victim has been identified as Deepak Gedam. The trouble started when Deepak’s brother Sanjay Gedam, resident of Saraswati Nagar, and his friend Mahesh Wankhede around 10 pm on Saturday had gone to a pandal where a religious programme was going on near Indian Gymkhana, Takia. Sanjay saw the two accused Suraj Tiwari and Bablu Budhware playing cards in the pandal and protested it. Enraged by the hurdle, the two accused indulged in wordy duel with Sanjay and his friend and later started beating him. The panicky Mahesh fled the spot and informed about it to Sanjay’s brother Deepak. Deepak reached the pandal and tried to intervene in the scuffle. This act of Deepak outraged the accused duo who attacked him with a knife in order to eliminate him.
Dhantoli police have booked the two accused under relevant Sections of IPC and mounted a hunt to nab them. The injured Deepak Gedam is being treated at GMCH.
