Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Two brothers, who were sleeping in their house, were beaten to death by their neighbours over a petty issue in Chandan Nagar on Friday early morning. Their mother received severe injuries as she intervened. She is not in a position to give statements to police.
A case has been registered against eight people including three women and most of them were arrested within few hours of the incident. They fought on Thursday evening too after which police had booked both the parties for manhandling each other.
Chandan Nagar police station incharge Yogesh Singh Tomar said incident took place near Hussaini Masjid in Green Park Colony at 6 am. The deceased have been identified as Naim Khan (26) and his younger brother Chhotu Khan (23).
They lived in the house with tin sheets. They were sleeping when they were attacked by neighbours with knives, sticks and a sword, which caused their death. Their 70-year-old mother Noor Bano was critically injured. The police have registered a case against Sikandar, Karim, Sufiyan, Yasin, Arbaaz and three women under IPC. A search is on for them.
