Raleigh, North Carolina Shooting Kills At Least Five: What To Know Pixabay/ Shutterbug75

A man reportedly killed his neighbor after he interfered and tried to stop the fight the accused was having with his wife over cooking mutton in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India on Tuesday, Oct. 18.

The accused, identified as Pappu Airhwar, brought home some mutton and wanted his wife to cook him mutton on Tuesday, Oct. 18. However, his wife, belonging to the Hindu community, refused to cook mutton as Tuesday is considered an auspicious day for Hindus and they do not eat non-vegetarian food on this day, India Today reported.

However, Pappu felt enraged over his wife's refusal. Following this, Pappu started shouting at his wife and a heated argument ensued between the couple. Hearing the noise, Pappu's neighbor Billu went to their house, to solve the fight.

Billu intervened in the fight, settled the issue, and returned back home. However, hours later, Pappu went to Billu's house and landed a blow on the back of the victim's head with a heavy stick. When the victim fell on the floor, the accused hit him with a stick on his face, East Coast Daily reported.

Hearing the screams, the victim's neighbors rushed to the scene. Seeing the neighbors approach the crime scene, Pappu immediately fled the scene.

Following this, the neighbors alerted the officers about the incident. The officers responded to the scene and took Billu to a hospital for treatment where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Following Billu’s death, based on the statement given by the victim's wife, the officers lodged a complaint against Pappu and arrested him on the same day under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.

A detailed investigation is going on in connection with the case.
