Seeing this, Lakshmanan (35), resident of the locality,  and Riyaz’s uncle, started arguing with Karthik over his action. An altercation ensued but Harisudan calmed them down. However, Lakshmanan was allegedly upset which then led him to engage in a brawl with Riyaz along with his nephew.  

When Karthik was walking towards his house with his mother Santhi, Lakshmanan stabbed him thrice.
Karthik died on the spot and Santhi was injured and taken to the hospital. Police registered a case based on Santhi’s complaint and arrested both Riyaz Raj and his uncle Lakshmanan.
