Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): A 25-year-old garment shop owner was stabbed to death by another businessman on Sunday noon, the police said. The accused is on the run. Bairagarh police station house officer (SHO) Kamaljeet Randhawa said Ankit Singh (25) ran a garment shop in Bairagarh. Bharat Pariyani (27) runs garment shop adjacent to his. On Sunday noon, a customer arrived at Pariyani’s shop and asked for a dress. When he was unable to find it there, he went to Singh’s shop and purchased the same.
