Four persons have been arrested for allegedly killing a 25-year-old man in Malviya Nagar market following an argument over him urinating on a public wall, the police said on Saturday.

The deceased, Mayank Panwar, 25, was attacked by a group of men on Thursday evening at Gate number 3 of DDA Market in Begumpur. Mayank was a hotel management graduate and was looking for a job.

With the help of CCTV footage, the prime accused, Manish, was arrested from Bawana. Ashish Tanwar, 20. Rahul, 19 and Suraj, 19 were later arrested, the police said.

During the investigation, the accused allegedly told the police that they were drinking near Sarvapriya Vihar when Manish’s mother objected to Mayank urinating near the wall of Lal Gumbad. The accused claimed Mayank abused the woman, DCP (South) Benita Mary Jaiker said.

The incident escalated into an argument after Mayank slapped Manish. The accused called his friends for help who pelted Mayank with stones. Manish and his friends overpowered Mayank and stabbed him multiple times, the DCP added.
