The deceased, Dipak alias Balli, was a resident of the area and the accused, Yogesh, was arrested, they said.

"When police reached the spot, they learnt that Dipak was stabbed with a knife by his neighbour Yogesh. During investigation, police found that a minor scuffle broke out between Dipak and Yogesh on Wednesday night over a petty issue which was later settled,” deputy commissioner of police (northwest) Aslam Khan said.

However, at around 11.40am on Thursday, the accused allegedly attacked the victim and stabbed him in the chest with a knife and fled from the spot, the officer said.

According to police, Dipak refused to take Yogesh for shopping since it was Diwali and he wanted to spend quality time with his family following which a scuffle broke out between the two.
