A 16-year-old boy was stabbed to death by two persons in North Delhi around midnight on Saturday.
“The minor, a resident of Bihar, had gone to fill his bottle around 12.30 am on Saturday in Sadar Bazaar area when he was attacked. He got into a heated argument with two persons over using the common spout. A scuffle broke out and the two persons knifed the boy with a sharp weapon and fled the spot. The boy was found lying in a pool of blood with stab wounds on his neck and chest,” a senior police officer said.
A case of murder has been registered against the two accused, who are absconding.
Police are investigating whether there was personal enmity or if it was a case of circumstantial provocation behind the crime.
