3 men chase, stab 19-year-oldto death in public in Delhi | Delhi News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: The teenager who was chased and knifed to death in public view on Saturday, had just stepped out of his house for a walk, his family said.
Around 6.30pm, the victim, Manish, has left his home in G block, Sunder Nagri, when he was waylaid by the three accused, who live a few blocks away in the northeast Delhi locality.
One of the attackers pushed him and the others started stabbing him, police said. He tried to escape, but the accused had grabbed his collar and stabbed him relentlessly till he fell to the ground.
The accused were identified as Alam, Faizan and Bilal. Police have ruled out any communal angle in the crime.
CCTV footage of the exposes the cold apathy of the capital’s residents. The clip shows onlookers watching the violence while no one comes to the victim’s aid. One man is seen sitting on a chair and the other on a bike, but motionless during the stabbing. A few people are seen running away from the spot.
Speaking to TOI, Manish’s mother Mithilesh said she was at home when the three accused came to her lane and started shouting: “We have killed your son. Go and pick his body.” “I ran to the spot, a few metres from my house, and saw my son lying in a pool of blood,” Mithilesh said, her clothes stained red with the blood of her son.
He was rushed to hospital where he was declared dead. She said Manish was stabbed in the chest, stomach, neck, face and other parts of the body.
Deputy commissioner of police (northeast) Sanjay Sain said there was no communal angle in the case and it was a fallout of a personal enmity which started last year. “Last year, Manish was attacked and stabbed by Mohsin and Shakir, two accomplices of the accused youths. Both were arrested in the case, which was filed by the Manish’s family. Manish also knew the accused well. He had said that the accused were using threats to try and get him to withdraw the case. All three accused were arrested from Nand Nagri area.”
Sher Singh, Manish’s uncle, said last year Mohsin and Shakir stabbed the victim on his chest, neck, and stomach when he had resisted their bid to snatch his mobile phone. According to police, the case under sections 307 (attempt to murder) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) was registered on June 26, 2021, on the complaint of Mithilesh. Earlier in the week, on September 28, Manish and his mother had attended the hearing on the matter, and the next date was set for October 6.
The police said there is a strong possibility that the hit on Manish was ordered from jail by Mohsin and Shakir. “Someone known to the accused had visited the jail and informed them that Manish was not willing to withdraw the case, so they ordered their associates to kill him. They too may be booked in the murder case. We have launched an investigation to unravel the conspiracy,” the officer said.
This was at least the third case of murder committed in full public view in the last few months. In August, a 25-year-old hotel management graduate was chased and stabbed to death by a group of men at a busy market in south Delhi’s Begumpur. In June, a 28-year-old man was knifed to death by two brothers in north Delhi’s Adarsh Nagar, as onlookers watched passively.
