This murder of a minor boy is an outcome of a minor ego clash between two groups of youngsters, who lived in neighbouring localities. First, they had a spat in the morning on Thursday. At night, the accused attacked Sumit outside his house. After that both, both groups again indulged in a clash. Following that, the sibling duo and the accused had gone to the civil hospital for their medical examination, there the accused group found Sawan alone standing outside the emergency room and assaulted him to death."
