On reaching the spot, they found the victim dead with multiple stab wounds. With the help of the footage, the accused were identified.
During interrogation, it was revealed that prime accused used to perform bike stunts on the street where the victim lived. When the victim objected to it, the accused did it again following which they got into a fight when Manish allegedly slapped the accused.
The minor then arranged two knives and committed the crime with two of his friends, the police added. Manish’s family said the victim fought for all the children residing in their street but when he was being beaten up, no one came forward to help him.
