New Delhi: A 22-year-old man was allegedly stabbed to death in a fight over playing loud music on Holi in west Delhi's Punjabi Bagh area, police said on Saturday.

During inquiry, it was found that the victims Manoj and his brother Laxmi Parsad (20) had already been taken to Acharya Bikshu Hospital, a senior police officer said.

Manoj was declared brought dead while Prasad received stitches on his scalp and was discharged after treatment. The body of Manoj had stab wound on the chest and a blunt injury to his head, the officer said.
