A 60-year-old labourer was strangled to death at Mani Majra here last night. The police have arrested a man for the murder. The victim has been identified as Bhulawan Rawat.

The police said they received information at 8.25 am that a man had fallen from the stairs of a shop at Pipli Wala town. They reached the spot and found the victim lying in a pool of blood. There was an injury mark under his armpit. He was rushed to a hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. Bhulawan had been working as a labourer at the shop, “Parveen Aara”, for the past 30 years.

The police said the victim’s nephew, Rajan, who worked at the same place, stated that a man, identified as Karan, had an argument with his uncle a few days ago. Yesterday, Karan had threatened his uncle.

The police said they scrutinised the footage of CCTV cameras installed in the area, which showed Karan holding a liquor bottle and arguing with the victim. Karan’s Aadhaar card was found near the spot.

Acting on the leads, a team, led by Inspector Jaswinder Kaur, SHO, Mani Majra police station, nabbed Karan from the bus stand at Mani Majra.
