A 33-year-old mechanic was fatally stabbed on Sunday at his rented house in the Mahindra Park area of northwest Delhi, according to police reports.

The victim, identified as Zahid, was acquainted with the alleged perpetrator, named Ravi, who is believed to have been involved in a dispute with Zahid, reportedly over a personal matter.

Authorities received a PCR call reporting a stabbing incident at Mahindra Park Police Station around 4:30 pm.

Zahid and Ravi were both associated with a woman who was present at the scene during the altercation, an officer said.

“Zahid confronted Ravi after finding him with the woman at his residence. This led to a verbal confrontation, culminating in Ravi fatally stabbing Zahid,” a senior police officer explained.

Ravi, sustaining injuries during the altercation, promptly alerted the police after the incident.

“Ravi contacted the authorities himself to report the incident. The deceased was employed as a paper cutting machine mechanic. Ravi is currently receiving medical treatment at a hospital,” the officer added.

Police have announced plans to interrogate Ravi once he is discharged from the hospital, as well as the woman involved in the incident. (With inputs from PTI)
