The bikers used to race and indulge in wheeling causing nuisance in the area. The accused also smoked cigarettes in front of the residence of Thomas, the victim, a local resident.

Thomas objected to it and asked them not to indulge in wheeling and smoking in front of his residence.

Later, he had complained about the incident to the father of one of the accused and asked his family to advise their son in this regard. The accused’s father assured them that he would tame his son.

The accused, who was present at that time in the house with others, called the man out on the pretext of talking to him and stabbed him with a dagger and knife.

After the incident, the youth fled from the spot leaving behind the profusely bleeding victim. Though the deceased was rushed to a nearby hospital, he succumbed to injuries in a few minutes.
