The girl found that some men on the terrace of their neighbouring house were taking her pictures and passing objectionable comments at her. Learning about the episode, Salim sent his son to the neighbouring house to look into the matter, the police said.
Instead of apologising, the accused armed with lathis and sticks barged into Salim's house and started beating up the family members. They thrashed Salim severely, following which he was rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on Sunday, they added.
The deceased's family members filed a police complaint accusing their neighbour Shahnawaz and two others, following which a case was registered, the police said.
Circle officer Sanjay Kumar Jaiswal said that Shahnawaz has been arrested while a search is on for the remaining two.
The body has been sent for postmortem, the CO said.
