While waiting inside a Delhi police station, two men got into a scuffle and before the cops could intervene, one of them stabbed the other to death.
A 32-year-old man killed his neighbour using a file poker inside South-East Delhi’s Ambedkar Nagar police station on Tuesday. Following the incident, the SHO of the police station has been sent to district lines. Initially, an altercation took place between Anil, 35, and his neighbour-Vishal after the former had finished celebrating his daughter’s fifth birthday.
Vishal, who works as a peon with a private firm, had asked Anil to treat him with alcohol, but the latter refused. It resulted into a scuffle. A PCR call was made by Anil’s wife and the duo was taken to Ambedkar Nagar police station. They were asked to go inside the IO’s room. While being questioned, they again got engaged in a scuffle.
Vishal attacked him with a file poker kept on the table of the IO. Before cops could intervene Anil was lying unconscious on the floor. Anil’s wife has claimed that Vishal also assaulted him with a rod before the police could pull him away. He was rushed to AIIMS Trauma Centre along with Vishal, as he got injured in the scuffle too.
Anil was declared dead. Vishal is out of danger. “Following the incident, the SHO of the police station has been sent to district lines and the sub-inspector and a constable posted there, have been suspended and directed to report to district lines,” said Romil Baaniya, DCP (South-East).
