The Hush Post: A 20-year-old from Uttar Pradesh was killed for not paying the cost of the mobile phone he had broken of his roommate.

Inspector Bijender Singh, Station House Officer, Sector 40 police station, said, “The victim had allegedly broken a mobile phone of the accused and promised to pay. Since he did now, this led to a dispute between the two roommates.”

The deceased worked as a help at a dhaba, and succumbed to his injuries on Sunday after he was allegedly hit on the head with a wooden stick by his roommate in Kanhai Colony, Sector 44 of Gurugram, the police said.

As per the police, the incident took place most probably in the early hours of Sunday morning, when the victim, identified by his first name Ravi, was fast asleep in his rented accommodation in Kanhai Colony.

“The victim was sharing a room with other three men, all natives of Bihar, including the accused. All four worked as help at a dhaba opposite Ramada Gurgaon Central hotel in Sector 44,” said Singh, who is the investigating officer of the case.

The police said the victim was attacked in his sleep by the accused, Rajesh, with a wooden stick. Singh said that the other two roommates said they were in deep sleep and couldn’t hear noise, when the attack happened. The police said the victim sustained a serious head injury and was taken to Civil Hospital for treatment, where he succumbed to his injuries on Sunday.

Dr Deepak Mathur, forensic expert who conducted the post-mortem at Civil Hospital, said the victim had died due to an injury on the left side of the head.

“A blow to the head, possibly inflicted with a sharp object, led to internal bleeding, causing brain haemorrhage and resulting in the victim’s death,” said Dr Mathur.

The police said a case has been lodged against the accused under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code at Sector 40 Police Station. “We are conducting raids to catch hold of the culprit, who is at large.”
