ASP of Hapur Rajkumar Agarwal said, “Raids are being conducted to nab the other accused” and added that Deepak and Manish had been taken into custody and evidence was being collected to verify Manish’s involvement in the incident.

As the victim and the accused belonged to different communities, tension prevailed in the village and heavy force was deployed to prevent any clash.

Agarwal said that some people were eating ‘Jalebi’ at a sweet shop in the village. Irshad arrived there with his friend on a motorcycle which banged the motorcycle of the other people. This led to a fight between them and Irshad was badly beaten.

He was taken to the community health centre in Garhmukteshwar where doctors declared him dead after examination.

However, it was being said in the village that Irshad constructed the house of Manish and had dues of 3 lakh pending. The discussion about payment led to an altercation.
