A cab driver was stabbed to death after three men on a bike picked up a fight with him over overtaking in south Delhi’s Mehrauli area. Police have caught a minor in connection with the case while two other accused are still on the run.
Manoj Kumar, a resident of Sangam Vihar, worked as a cab driver for a company in Gurugram.
Yesterday evening, he picked up five employees from Malviya Nagar and was heading to Mehrauli to pick up another employee when his cab got stuck in a traffic jam. Around 8.40 pm, the three accused arrived on a bike and asked Manoj to give way, but due to lack of space, he couldn't. This led to a fight between them and one of them stabbed Manoj in the chest with a knife.
The trio then fled the scene. Locals, meanwhile, rushed Manoj to the hospital, but he died on the way.
Police were informed, after which a case was registered and an investigation was taken up. They examined CCTV cameras and managed to identify one of the accused, who is a minor, and apprehended him. The police are now searching for the remaining two accused.
