Hyderabad: A 26-year-old man was murdered by his friend at a furniture workshop in Telangana’s Hyderabad on Sunday, reportedly after an argument broke out between them over a mobile phone.
The deceased was identified as Jitender, a native of Uttar Pradesh. He had been working as a carpenter at a furniture workshop in Jhirra locality of Hyderabad’s Asif Nagar area. Some days ago, his friend, Farooq, arrived in the city from Uttar Pradesh for meeting him. The two were staying together at the workshop, Asif Nagar inspector N Ravinder stated.
On Sunday morning, the workshop’s owner, identified as Muntazir, informed the police that Jitender was found dead at the workshop while his Farooq was lying injured there. Subsequent police inquiries revealed that an altercation had flared up between the two friends after Farooq asked Jitender to give his mobile phone to him, according to a report published by The Times of India.
“Jitender refused to give his phone and during the argument, they started attacking each other with tools in the workshop. Jitender sustained a severe head injury and bled to death. Farooq also sustained a few injuries. He was admitted to OGH and is out of danger,” the report quoted the inspector as saying.
This comes days after a man was booked for allegedly kidnapping and murdering his female relative’s four-year-old son in Hyderabad. The now-deceased boy was identified as Laxmi Narsimha, a resident of Mailardevpally locality. His uncle, identified as Veeresh, allegedly kidnapped him. The child’s parents, upon realising that he has gone missing, filed a missing person complaint with the police.
Based on the complaint, a case of kidnapping was lodged and efforts were initiated to find the child. Later, the child’s body was found. Police zeroed in on Veersh who held a grudge against the child’s mother. He used to think that the boy’s mother was the one who was responsible for issues between him and his wife.
