A 19-year-old boy was stabbed to death by his friend after he refused to take him out for Diwali’s shopping in his scooter on Thursday morning. The incident took place in northwest Delhi’s Jahangirpuri area. The accused identified as Yogesh.
The victim has been identified as Dipak alias Balli. According to police, Dipak refused to take Yogesh for shopping since it was Diwali and he wanted to spend quality time with his family. Following which, a scuffle broke between the two friends.
However, the dispute between the two friends were settled by their family members and neighbours and both Yogesh and Dipak returned home. But, Yogesh was feeling humiliated and wanted to take revenge. He was waiting for an opportunity to attack him.
On Thursday noon, Yogesh spotted Dipak alone. “When Yogesh confronted Dipak and asked him why he abused him, Dipak once again made a derogatory remark. This annoyed Yogesh more. He pulled out a knife, stabbed Dipak in his chest and fled,” the DCP told Hindustan Times.
“When police reached the spot, they learnt that Dipak was stabbed with a knife by his neighbour Yogesh (19). During the investigation, police found that a minor scuffle broke out between Dipak and Yogesh Wednesday night over a petty issue which was later settled,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (northwest) Aslam Khan told news agency PTI.
Dipak was taken to the Babu Jagjivan Ram Memorial Hospital, where he succumbed to injuries, the officer said.
