An 18-year-old man was killed and four others were seriously injured after a fight broke out between two brothers allegedly over a property dispute in Shahdara, police said on Wednesday.

The police identified the victims as Suhan, Faizan (19), Nisha (42), Imran (45), and Shamshad (28), all residents of Rashid Market near Shahi Masjid in the Jagatpuri area.

On Tuesday, the police received a PCR call reporting a fight between two brothers. When the team arrived at the scene, they found that the injured had already been taken to Dr. Hedgewar Hospital.

During the initial investigation, the police found that the fight broke out over a shop owned by Saied Ahmed.

“Saied Ahmed has six sons, four of whom are Istekaar, Julfikaar, Imran, and Shamshad. They all live in the same house. Julfikaar runs a welding shop on the property. Imran wanted to sell the shop with the approval of his brothers, but Julfikaar objected,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Shahdara) Surendra Chaudhary said.

The property dispute erupted after a long-standing enmity between Julfikaar and Imran, among other family members.

A heated argument between Julfikaar and Imran turned violent. Julfikaar and his son Mursheed stabbed Imran, his wife Nisha, his sons Faizan and Suhan, and his brother Shamshad.

Suhan died on the spot while the others were rushed to the hospital.

A case was registered against Mursheed, Julfikaar, and his wife Shabana, who were arrested. Further investigation is underway, Chaudhary added. (With inputs from PTI)
