According to the police, one of the accused Ghouse pasha was abused by Shiva and his friends (Anil, Daniel and Mintu) at Old Ghasmandi, Secunderabad while he was boozing peacefully.
Ghouse pasha, humiliated by the scene, planned revenge on Shiva and called upon his friends to help him.
Nayeem and Zakeer soon arrived on the spot to rescue Ghouse, who in a state of rage plunged Shiva’s neck with a blade amid the clash.
Shiva’s friends however managed to flee from the spot to protect themselves while the accused abandoned him to die.
They were arrested on Wednesday by the police who seized the murder weapon, beer bottle, Zen car, and blood-stained clothes from their possession.
