According to the police report, a man in Delhi was mercilessly beaten to death in front of his teen son over ₹ 20, on Monday.
Neighbors told newsmen that the man’s 13-year-old son reportedly tried to stop the assault and begged the attackers to spare his father.
The senior police officials told that the police have arrested two brothers, Santosh and Saroj, for the murder of Rupesh last Thursday. The 38-year-old lived in Burari in north Delhi with his wife and children.
The area is notorious for its crime rate.
During the investigations, the police found that the incident took place when Rupesh went to a neighbourhood salon for a shave and was asked to pay ₹ 50. He gave Santosh, the salon owner, ₹ 30 saying he would pay the rest later.
This led to a fight where brothers Santosh and Saroj allegedly started thrashing Rupesh with a plastic pipe in their salon.
A clip of the assault has also surfaced, in which Rupesh’s son tried to intervene as his father was beaten. It also shows many people watching the fight but doing nothing to help the victim.
When Rupesh was rushed to the hospital, the doctors declared him dead, the police said.
