Police said Aman and his friend Anirudh Kumar Yadav were on their way to visit the former’s uncle’s home at Karawal Nagar. “They met at ITO, but stopped at G B Road to buy cigarettes. There, Aman’s mobile phone was snatched by one of the accused. Aman caught up with him and beat him up, but another accused attacked him with a knife,” a senior police officer said.
