        i suspect it as gang rivalry. previously many muslim criminals tried to color their kins slaying as communal issue to gain sympathy and deflect blame, when they were actually dead by either gang rivalry or mobs distaste for their crimes. if stabbing is the incident then the accused must be a gang member and they normally attack rivals.

            Fight for seats turned by media into Hindu Muslim fight just so that media can blame Hindus, BJP, rsss when in reality it's common crime. Muslims in railways specially middle class of train are very aggressive and abusive, I have experienced thta many times. Then they start Namaz in the pessanger pathway in the afternoon like an Arab slave
