A 26-year-old man was ar­rested for al­legedly killing his 31-year-old friend in a fit of rage over a past dis­pute on Wed­nes­day at Kausa in Mum­bra, Thane. The ac­cused Mo­hammed Da­wood Elias Shaikh, a res­i­dent of Mum­bra, and the de­ceased Im­ran Omar Shaikh were daily wage work­ers at a lace work­shop in Mum­bra. On Wed­nes­day, Mo­hammed and Im­ran had an ar­gu­ment about quit­ting the job. “The two had an ar­gu­ment a cou­ple of days ago af­ter Mo­hammed told Im­ran to leave the job. The mat­ter was, how­ever, sorted by the owner. But on Wed­nes­day both had a sim­i­lar ar­gu­ment. Mo­hammed, who was car­ry­ing a knife, stabbed Im­ran,” said D Cha­van, in­ves­ti­ga­tion of­fi­cer from Mum­bra. The other work­ers who wit­nessed the ar­gu­ment alerted the owner and soon Mo­hammed was caught and handed over to the po­lice, said Cha­van. Cha­van said, “The two were good friends and had been work­ing at the same place for the past sev­eral months. Mo­hammed was re­manded in po­lice cus­tody for five days.”
