Guard arrested

NEW DELHI: A security guard has been arrested by the South Delhi police for allegedly killing his colleague at Okhla in South Delhi on August 14.

According to the police, the body of Maan Singh, a resident of Chamba in Himachal Pradesh who was employed as a security guard at a leather garment factory in Okhla, was found within the factory premises with his face and head smashed with an iron rod. Following investigations, the police tracked down the suspect, Jasbir Singh, also a security guard at the same factory. He was missing since the incident came to light.

During interrogation, Jasbir told the police that the two were consuming liquor well past midnight on August 13 when an argument broke out between them over a petty issue.

Soon, things came to fisticuffs and then Jasbir picked up an iron rod lying nearby and hit him repeatedly. He then locked the main gate of the factory and also escaped with some cash.
