New Delhi: A 17-year-old vegetable vendor was allegedly stabbed to death by two men during a botched robbery in Rohini's Meer Vihar area. Police on Monday said that the vendor identified as Shamsher Alam was returning home along with his father after selling vegetables on the intervening night of Thursday-Friday when some unidentified persons took them to a secluded spot and stabbed him for resisting robbery.
