New Delhi: A 35-year-old Murshid Ansari was stabbed to death allegedly by a sanitation worker in south Delhi’s Hauz Khas area following an argument over spitting, police said.

Victim Murshid, and the accused Mukesh, 40, rented different rooms in the same flat in Gujjar Colony in south Delhi’s Gautam Nagar.

At around 9.15 pm, after offering namaz, Murshid was going to his room when he found Mukesh sitting on the stairs. Murshid asked him to make some space as he blocked his way on the stairs.

But, Mukesh instead of making space started brandishing his vegetable knife to scare him.
