A tribal youth died after being hit by an arrow shot by another youth following a tiff over eveteasing in Naria settlements in Dabhoi taluka of Vadodara district on Sunday.

Dabhoi police said one Rakesh Nayak (20) shot an arrow at Boksinh Nayak (22) and killed the latter on the spot.

"Boksinh's two sisters Gugita (10) and Samita (6) had gone to watch a movie at Rakesh's house nearby. However, Rakesh grabbed Samita's hand. The sisters complained their brother about the incident," Dabhoi police inspector Bharat Barot said.
