Amritsar, November 26

A 44-year-old migrant, identified as Kali, was killed as he was attacked by two other migrants during a quarrel that took place between them here on Wednesday night. The victim originally hailed from Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh. The incident occurred in Gali Badrao near Katra Moti Ram area where they were living in a rented accommodation.

The police have arrested one of the suspects, identified as Vinod, who works as a mason, while his accomplice, Guru, is still absconding. The police have registered a case in this connection and raids are on to nab him.

Gurmeet Singh, SHO, Division E police station, said during interrogation Vinod told that they had a quarrel with Kali over some issue while having alcohol. They used some tool, which is used in construction work, for killing him.

The SHO said they were yet to recover the weapon. He said action was likely to be taken against the owner of the house as he failed to inform the police about the people living in his residential complex. He said it was mandatory for the people to inform the police about their tenants and get their credentials verified before renting out accommodation.
