    |

    New Delhi, Nov 29: Northwest Delhi's Shalimar Bagh witnessed a grotesque episode of violence which led to the murder of a 23-year-old man who was allegedly stabbed to death by over a dozen men in full public view.

    The 23-year-old victim, Tanish Kwatra, and Nikhil Sharma were part of two local groups and shared cold vibes. On Monday, Kwatra's scooter brushed past the scooter of Govinda, who is Sharma's friend and a quarrel ensued, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (northwest) Aslam Khan, as per a PTI report.

    Govinda called Sharma while Kwatra asked his eight to nine friends to come to the spot. Kwatra's group thrashed Sharma and his friend Govinda, police said.

    Later, Kwatra and Sharma's mothers intervened in the matter and asked both of them to reach a compromise, police said, adding that though Sharma reconciled with Kwatra, he planned to exact revenge for his insult. Sharma called his friends from Jahangirpuri, Mahendra Park and other adjoining areas to chalk out a plan.

    On Tuesday, they found Kwatra talking to a couple of his friends, and called him in the corner to have a word with him, police said. Kwatra thought they would not harm him since they had already reached a compromise and went towards them. They surrounded him and started thrashing him, police said.
