SRIKAKULAM:A clash over a wide ball in a cricket match held between two teams in Bondilipuram village near Srikakulam led to the death of a youngster Saturday. The deceased has been identified as P Ajay Kumar (19), a resident of Bondilipuram village.

According to sources, there was heated argument among players of the two teams of the village, over a wide ball bowled by a bowler during the cricket match. While the batting team proclaimed it as a wide, the bowling team insisted that the ball was right. The argument over the issue led to a fight where another 19-year old Kishore Kumar beat Ajay who was from the other team with a cricket bat on his head. He also punched Ajay severely on his face, ribs and other parts of the body leaving Ajay unconscious on the spot. Other members who were involved in the fight, noticed that blood was oozing out of Ajay’s head and alerted the locals, who shifted him to a nearby hospital. Ajay died while undergoing treatment in the hospital. Sources said that Ajay was a degree second year student from a private college at Srikakulam, while Kishore Kumar is an engineering student in the town. Panic-stricken Kishore fled from the spot and is presently absconding. The II Town police of Srikakulam have registered a case.
