The Ghatkopar police have booked two men for murdering a 53-year-old because of a petty dispute on Sunday. The victim who was identified as Bashir Khan, 53, was a resident of Nawab chawl at Sanghani Estate. An officer from Ghatkopar police station told Hindustan Times, "The accused had been at loggerheads with Khan and his son Mujamil, 24, over petty neighbourhood conflicts such as drawing water from a nearby tap."
The duo came to the residence of the Khans' and started fighting with the father and his son. They slapped, punched and kicked Khan and Mujamil. “Owing to Khan’s age, he was unable to bear the attack and succumbed to his injuries when he was taken to a nearby hospital,” said the officer.
