In a horrifying incident in the national capital, a 51-year old businessman was stabbed to death for opposing his daughter’s harassment. The incident took place late Saturday night when Tyagi with his daughter were returning from a clinic and their neighbour Mohammad Alam allegedly passed a lewd remark on her.
Enraged, after dropping his daughter home, he went to Alam’s house to talk to his father, Jehangir but they got into an altercation where four people reportedly ganged up against Tyagi and stabbed him to death. His son, who had accompanied him to Alam’s house was also stabbed multiple times and is critical and recovering.
As reported by Times of India, at around midnight on Saturday night, Alam and his friends harass Tyagi and his daughter. Tyagi confronts them, but they abuse him and flee. Tyagi then drops off his daughter and goes to Alam’s house with his son to take it up with Alam’s father. When he’s inside, a dozen people surround him and beat him up. When Tyagi’s son tries to intervene, he is also beaten up.
Tyagi’s family, however, believes this was a planned attack as they were ready with the weapons to attack them. According to the initial autopsy report, Tyagi had three fatal wounds in his liver, kidney and intestines. He died because of heart failure caused by excessive bleeding. According to DCP (West) Monika Bhardwaj, a case which was registered under sections of attempt to murder will now be converted to a case of murder against the accused.
Alam and his father Jehangir along with other two accused are arrested by the police and probe is underway. Alam was earlier jailed in another attempt-to-murder case and was released recently. He has also been involved in other assault cases in the neighbourhood.
