Hyderabad: In a bizarre incident, stone-pelting by a neighbour claimed the life of a petrol pump employee in Rein Bazaar late on Sunday.
The police said the victim, Mohammed Irfan, had a longstanding dispute with his neighbour and both used to look for an issue to settle scores with each other. On Sunday, Irfan suffered severe head injuries after he was attacked by his neighbour Maaz Bin Abood with stones on Sunday night.
The police said the incident occurred under Rein Bazaar police station limits at about 9 pm on Sunday after Irfan, who resides in Nagabowli, came face to face with his arch rival in the area. Soon, both started hurling stones at each other during which Irfan suffered head injury, said the Rein Bazaar police.
On Sunday morning also, the duo was involved in a clash. The injured person was rushed to a hospital at Malakpet, where the doctors declared him dead on arrival. The body of Irfan has been shifted to Osmania General Hospital for autopsy. Reasons of the dispute are yet to be investigated and a hunt is on to nab the absconding Maaz, according to the police.
