Police on Friday said that a man was fatally stabbed, allegedly by two individuals, one of whom is a minor.

The motive behind the killing is suspected to be animosity over a girl, but police are still investigating.

The accused have been identified as Dharmender (18) and a juvenile (17), according to officials.

On Thursday, two PCR calls were made to Okhla police station at 5.27 pm reporting injuries to a boy. A police team was promptly dispatched to the scene.

Subsequently, at 6.22 pm, another PCR call was received from a hospital in Okhla Industrial Area, stating that Shivam, a resident of JJ Camp, Okhla Phase-II, had been brought in with serious injuries following a quarrel at Salora Park in Okhla.

“He was admitted to the ICU and later declared dead by the doctor during the treatment,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast) Rajesh Deo said.

During the investigation, it was found that Shivam had accompanied Dharmender and the minor to Salora Park around 5.10 pm on Thursday.

“After a few minutes, Shivam came out from the park and when he sat on his motorcycle, he suddenly fell on the footpath and blood was oozing from his neck,” the DCP said.

“Further probe revealed that the minor had stabbed Shivam in the neck,” he added.

Both accused have been arrested, and a case under sections 302 (murder) and 34 (common intentions) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered, police said. (With inputs from PTI)
