The birthday party of Moti Lal's grandson on Tibba road on Thursday night turned sour when a scuffle occurred between his relatives and a few neighbours over the high volume of music system. During the scuffle, 40-year-old Jagannath was injured. Later, he succumbed to injuries.
Police have registered a case against six persons including Pawan Kumar, Bachitar Singh and Charan Singh. All of them are absconding after the incident.
Jaganaath's wife Ramawati said he was selling jalebis on a rehri in the nearby area and was returning home when Pawan and others started fighting with Motilal and his family over the high volume of music system. Moti Lal was celebrating the first birthday of his grandson.
While Moti Lal reportedly said he would reduce the volume, Pawan and others were adamant to get it switched off. All were under the influence of alcohol and they started fighting over this issue. In the meantime, Jagannath came and started intervening between the two groups and he was badly injured, said one Amit living in the same area.
Jaganaath was rushed to hospital on a rehra but he was declared dead on arrival. SHO Rajesh Sharma said a post-mortem would reveal the type of injuries the victim suffered.
Allegations have been levelled against police officers. The incident occurred around 11.30 pm. But when residents went to the nearby police station, they could not find any official to listen to their complaint. Even no ambulance came for taking the patient to hospital.
