HYDERABAD: A man, along with his friends, murdered his cousin after he was not served chicken curry at a marriage function in Hussaini Alam in the city on Sunday night. The deceased was identified as Anwar, a resident of Jamia Nizamia. The accused are Ashafq Ali Khan and two others. The police took custody of the three and questioned them in connection with the offence.

Inspector G Syamsunder said that an engagement function was held at Tariqat Manzil function hall Sunday night. Minutes before the function got over at around 1 am, Ashafq and his friends came to the function hall and demanded to be served chicken curry with food. “Anwar, Ashafq’s cousin, informed that chicken curry was over and requested them to have the meal with some other curry. Enraged over not getting what he wanted, Ashafq entered into a heated argument with Anwar,’ police said. During the argument, Anwar warned Ashafq to mend his ways asking him not to be a spoilsport at the function. Ashafq retaliated by saying that he and his friends were humiliated because they were not served chicken curry. He then came out of the function hall and called his friends over phone. Around five persons came from Kalapathar with lethal weapons.

They chased Anwar and then murdered him by stabbing, police said. When police arrived, they found Anwar in a pool of blood and shifted him to nearby hospital where the doctors declared him brought dead. Another person was hospitalised with injuries. Police registered a murder case.
