HYDERABAD: In an attempt to save his son from miscreants who were beating him mercilessly, a 58-year-old man suffered fist-blows on his chest died on the way to the hospital at Rajendranagar in wee hours of Saturday.
The deceased Shaik Ibrahim Ahmed, who works as a diesel mechanic with a private company in Saudi Arabia, came to the city on three months leave and was about to go back after celebrating Ramzan with his family members.
Ibrahim along with his wife Shakeera Begum and his son Shahzeb and elder daughter, was staying in a house at Jalalbaba Nagar in Rajendranagar. On April 10, when Shahzeb and his friend Shaik Asif were going home, the former reportedly drove his vehicle fast causing inconvenience to a pedestrian identified as Mujahid, who is also a resident of the Jalalbaba Nagar.
Mujahid, Shahzeb and Asif had a heated argument on the road. However, it was pacified then by the locals. On the same night, Mujahid went to Asif’s house and beat him up. Three days later, on Saturday night at around 11.30 pm, Mujahid and his friends Jaffar and Imran, went to Shahzeb’s house and created nuisance. Shahzeb’s parents went out and scolded the trio for creating disturbance and told that their son was not present at the home.
One of the three persons had tore Shakeera’s blouse resulting to a fight. While the fight was on, Shahzeb came back home and tried to save his father, but he was taken aside and was beaten. Ibrahim in order to his save his son went ahead and tried to pull the trio back, but he suffered severe fist blows on his chest. “My father and I went to the police station to lodge a complaint and collapsed,” Shahzeb told Express.
