Chandigarh: A teenager was stabbed to death, and his two brothers were injured, by a group of people who also allegedly passed communal slurs against them after an alleged dispute over a seat on a train near Ballabhgarh in Haryana.

The deceased has been identified as Junaid (17) while his brothers Hasim (21) and Sakir (23) were injured, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Faridabad Government Railway Police (GRP), Mohinder Singh said.

“Sakir is serious,” the DSP told PTI, adding that the railway police has registered a case of murder. Singh said the incident happened on Thursday night on board the Delhi-Mathura passenger train between Ballabgarh and Mathura stations.

“An altercation took place between the three brothers and some 10 passengers over a seat. The passengers allegedly passed some remarks on the three brothers, who are Muslims, and residents of Khandawali village in Faridabad,” he said.

He said a passenger used a knife to stab one of the brothers to death. No arrests have been made so far, the officer said.

“They called us Pakistanis and accused us of eating beef,” Sakir’s brother told CNN-News 18.

The DSP said three police teams have been formed to investigate the incident and “no context regarding beef has risen so far.”
