Mumbai police have arrested two men for thrashing their friend to death in front of his family in Ghatkopar. The deceased identified as Ashwnikumar Dubey, a resident of Asalpha was beaten to death by his friends at his residence. The deceased got a job at a housekeeping firm a month ago through his friend's reference but on receiving his salary he hid it from his family and lied about not receiving it. When the family questioned his friend about the delay in the salary, his friends arrived at his place and questioned him. When they realised he was lying about not receiving the salary, the matter escalated into a scuffle resulting in the death of Ashwnikumar due to internal bleeding.

Ashwinikumar (24), a resident of Thorat Chawl was unemployed and sought Narendra Rane (31) and Rahul Raut (30), his friend's help to find a job. Narendra, who was working in a housekeeping firm, referred Ashwinikumar for the job in May 2019. In July, the deceased's family questioned him about his salary to which he lied stating he did not receive it. Ashwinikumar’s parents immediately called Narendra to confront about the delay in the salary.

Narendra and Rahul met Ashwinikumar at his place and informed his family that Ashwinikumar received his salary on 8th July to which the deceased tried to cover up his lie by calling Narendra a liar. Enraged by this, Narendra got into a verbal spat with the deceased which escalated into a brawl where Narendra and Rahul started thrashing Ashwinikumar mercilessly. When Ashwinikumar's parents pulled their son out from the scuffle, he was non-responsive and was immediately rushed to Rajwadi Hospital where the doctors declared him dead after preliminary checkups.
