The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

New Delhi: A 23-year-old man was stabbed to death by three men when he stopped them from lit­ter­ing the pond out­side his house in south­west Delhi’s Vas­ant Kunj on Thurs­day. Two of the ac­cused, Waseem and Shahrukh were ar­rested, while one of them man­aged to es­cape.

Po­lice re­ceived a PCR call at 3pm from a neigh­bour of the vic­tim, Dan­ish, stat­ing that he was ly­ing in a pool of blood. A po­lice team rushed to the spot and Dan­ish was taken to a hospi­tal where he was de­clared brought dead.

Po­lice said at 2.30pm Dan­ish was walk­ing out­side his house when he no­ticed the ac­cused throw­ing garbage bags into the pond — barely 20m from his house. He walked up to them and asked them not to do so. “While he was guid­ing them to a dust­bin, the men slapped him,” they added. Dan­ish fought back, which got the ac­cused an­gry and they stabbed him in the chest and stom­ach. The stab wound in the chest proved to be fa­tal, po­lice said. A team has been formed to track down the ab­scond­ing ac­cused, po­lice added.
