“Pankaj used to tease a 17-year-old Dailt girl of his neighbourhood. The girl, on Friday evening, was on way to the market when Pankaj started teasing her and misbehaved with her,” Chhatta Station Officer Pankaj Yadav said.

The girl went on to complain to her neighbour Chhail Bihari, who was passing through the area. Bihari caught hold of Pankaj and thrashed him in the market. Following intervention by locals, Bihari warned Pankaj and let him go.

“On Saturday, Chhail Bihari and Mantu were going to market on foot. While they were passing the house of the accused, Pankaj, Sonu and Lallu entered into heated arguments with them. Pankaj pulled out sharp-edged weapon and attacked Chhail Bihari and Mantu. The incident occurred near Chhail Bihari’s house,” said Yadav.

He added: “While Pankaj hit Chhail Bihari on the face, Mantu with attacked with a sharp-edged weapon in the stomach several times. When Chhail Bihari and Mantu fell on the ground, the accused fled.”


Locals rushed the two to the hospital where doctors declared Mantu brought dead on arrival. Later, an FIR was lodged against Pankaj, Sonu and Lallu at Chatta police station.
