HYDERABAD: Nineteen-year old Owais Patel, whose feisty punches led to the death of Nabeel Mohammed during a street fight, according to police, was often tired of torment and embarrassment at the hands of his friends. Like most of the youngsters, he too spent a good sum on his clothing, hair-do and bikes, and his friends always dismissed him. They used to pass lewd remarks on his style statements. The friendly fight in the wee hours of May 3, was only one of the occasions for Owais to prove to the group that he was the real strongman, police said. 

Owais Wanted.JPG“Owais Patel is an adamant and dominating person. He wears fashionable branded apparels, maintains a fancy bike and often shows off his physique too. But all others used to neutralise him making counter jokes on him,” DCP V Satyanarayana told reporters here on Thursday.

“They became vagabonds due to lack of parental monitoring. The parents did not bother where their children were moving around even at nights. Even after coming to know about the incident, some of them did not inform the police,” the DCP said. According to him, the issue has awakened the social consciousness of all.

Police have taken into consideration the lack of parental supervision turning youngsters into vagabonds. They would be conducting counselling sessions for youngsters who irresponsibly roam around the streets. The DCP has warned that action would be taken against the parents if any minors were found to be causing trouble on the streets.
