COIMBATORE:Two men died of stab injuries  on Saturday night in Edayar Street here following a dispute over payment for beef, which was taken from a meat stall owned by one of the victims.

Police said the victims were M Moideen Basha (34) of Marakadai, who owns a beef stall, and his friend, Habeeb Muhammad (23) of Madukkarai. The accused include another beef stall owner, Sadiq Ali of Ukkadam, his brother Sheikh Ali, and four others - Mansoor Ali, Zaheer, Askar Ali and Ashraf. All of them are absconding.

Police said Moideen Basha and Sadiq Ali were relatives. On Saturday, Sadiq took a few kilograms of beef from Moideen’s stall without paying for it. This led to a dispute with a stall employee, who told Moideen of it. Moideen and Sadiq then quarrelled about it. To sort out the

dispute, Sadiq called Moideen to the Edayar Street bakery for talks. Moideen and Habeeb went to the bakery, where the six accused were also present.

During the talks, an argument broke out between the two groups, which led to one of Sadiq’s men stabbing Moideen and Habeeb with a butcher’s knife in the abdomen. They died in a hospital subsequently.
