New Delhi: A 50-year-old senior bank manager was stabbed to death by his relative for reasons of some personal enmity on Wednesday, police said.

Passers-by informed the police and Das was taken to a hospital where he was declared dead, said the officer, adding that a case of murder has been registered against the attacker, Bharat, who is a relative of Das and a hunt is now on to nab him.

The officer said that Bharat, who has a criminal background, resides in the neighbourhood of Das. Initial information revealed that the attacker had some personal enmity with Das, said the police officer.
