A man, along with his two ac­com­plices, stabbed a labourer at Chuharpur Road to death late on Mon­day night. Though the ac­cused have not been ar­rested, but the po­lice are claim­ing that il­licit re­la­tion of the vic­tim with the wife of the main ac­cused led to the crime.

The de­ceased has been iden­ti­fied as Om Parkash ( 26) of Harmeet Colony. The Hai­bowal po­lice have booked Vinod Ku­mar of the same lo­cal­ity and his two ac­com­plices for the murder.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, Om Parkash, who ba­si­cally hailed from Bi­har lived in the colony along with his fam­ily and worked in a fac­tory. On Mon­day night, he was go­ing to­wards Chuharpur road, when Vinod and two oth­ers con­fronted him and stabbed him with knife. The ac­cused fled the spot af­ter the com­mit­ting the crime.

Some passersby sounded the po­lice af­ter see­ing Om Parkash ly­ing in a pool of blood. The po­lice reached the spot and took him to a hospi­tal. Om Parkash told the po­lice that Vinod and two oth­ers stabbed him. Later, he suc­cumbed to his in­juries.

Hai­bowal SHO in­spec­tor SP Singh said Vinod was an­gry with Om Parkash af­ter he got to know of the al­leged il­licit re­la­tion of the vic­tim with his wife. “Vinod had sent his wife to Bi­har a few days ago and was look­ing for the right time to teach Om Prakash a les­son,” said the SHO.

“The iden­tity of Vinod's ac­com­plices could not be as­cer­tained yet. Vinod could have es­caped to Bi­har af­ter com­mit­ting the crime. We have dis­patched po­lice par­ties to Bi­har for his ar­rest,” he added.

It is third murder in the city in the past 24 hours.
