NAGPUR: An employee of a dhaba (roadside eatery) was arrested in the Nagpur district on Tuesday for allegedly killing the owner for not giving him a blanket, the police said.
The incident took place at the eatery which is situated near Wadamba village on the Nagpur-Jabalpur highway early Tuesday morning.
Kara Narayan Singh Bawad (50) allegedly killed Prakash Balgovind Jaiswal (53), his employer, by hitting him on the head with a rod.
An official of the Deolapar police station said the incident took place around 5 am when Bawad woke up and asked for a blanket but Jaiswal refused.
Angered, Bawad allegedly smashed his head by hitting repeatedly with a rod before other employees could come to Jaiswal's help.
Bawad was arrested for murder and further probe was on, the official said.
