Police said the victim, Rahul Singh, hailed from Ballabgarh’s Sagarpur village and was pursuing a law degree through distance learning. He was also a local-level wrestler. Police said he was stabbed 14 times with knives and suffered wounds in his stomach, legs and hands.

According to police, the incident took place around 6 pm on Saturday when Rahul had gone to meet his friends.

His father, Dharamraj, alleged: “At 6.10 pm, I got to know that 8-10 men from Sagarpur village had picked a fight with my son near Sunped road. I rushed there with my nephews. From the car, we saw the accused men repeatedly stab my son with knives. At least three unknown men, armed with sticks and knives, also assaulted him…” He alleged that when they raised an alarm, the accused threatened to kill their family and fled.

Police said Rahul’s family rushed him to a private hospital in Ballabgarh, from where he was referred to another private hospital in sector 8 due to the nature of injuries. He died during treatment, said police.
Jaibir Singh, DCP Ballabgarh, said, “The victim’s family has named four people in the complaint. A case of murder has been registered against eight people. Preliminary probe has found that they were all friends. As per the victim’s family, there was enmity related to an old fight which took place two years ago.
