New Delhi, Oct 3 (PTI) A 20-year-old Delhi University student has been arrested for allegedly killing along with his accomplices two brothers in Haryana for thrashing him badly and “making him a laughing stock in his village”, police said Wednesday.

The accused, identified as Anshu, a resident of Sonepat, was arrested Tuesday from outer Delhi’s Najafgarh where he had come to meet his relatives while carrying an illegal weapon. The other five had already been arrested by the Haryana Police, they said.

“During interrogation, Anshu disclosed that he was a first-year student of Bachelor of Arts in Swami Shraddhanand College, Alipur and while studying, he fell in the company of bad elements and took to crime,” said Anto Alphonse, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Dwarka).

Anshu had rivalry with one Aashish alias Ashu (25), from Halalpur, Haryana. Last year, during a wedding he got into a fight with Ashish over some issue, he said.

“Ashish allegedly thrashed Anshu, who became a laughing stock in his village,” the DCP said.

This enraged Anshu and he called his friends Sandeep, Rohit, Mannu, Arun and Kartik from Narela and planned to attack Ashish in September this year, he said.

They allegedly opened fire on Ashish, and when his brother Himanshu came to his rescue, they also fired at Himanshu. The brothers died in this incident, the DCP added.

A sophisticated pistol 7.65 mm and two live cartridges were recovered from him, he said. NIT SLB KJ 10032029
