New Delhi: A 31-year-old man was allegedly stabbed to death in northwest Delhi’s Jahangirpuri area for objecting to eve-teasing of his sister-in-law by his neighbour who has been arrested, police said on Thursday.
Police said that the victim Sabir Ali, 31, was a scrap dealer and lived with his family in Jahangirpuri. His younger brother and his wife also lived with him.
