A man reportedly got brutally thrashed to death by three men for allegedly staring at one of them in Matunga, Mumbai, India on Sunday, Oct. 23.

The victim, identified as 28-year-old Ronit Bhalekar, an employee at a call center, was in an inebriated state and was walking across a road near Matunga, Mumbai, along with his friend, looking for alcohol shops at around 3.40 am on Sunday, Oct. 23. As he was looking for alcohol shops, one of the accused in the case was walking in the same lane. They both glanced at each other, which started a verbal argument about why one was staring at another, the Times Of India reported.

As the heated argument escalated, the fight turned into a physical scuffle with each other. Seeing the argument turn into a physical fight, the accused's two friends also joined in the fight and started attacking Bhalekar together.

The three accused then allegedly punched and kicked Bhalekar and also used a belt to hit him. They hit Bhalekar on the chest and stomach. Bhalekar, who suffered grievous injuries in the attack, collapsed onto the ground.

The three accused collectively kept pushing Bhalekar to the ground while he was trying to fight back. In the end, when they pushed him, Bhalekar fell down, hit his head on the ground, and lost consciousness, India Today reported.

He was immediately rushed to a hospital for treatment, where he was declared dead on arrival.

As per the preliminary report from the doctors, Bhalekar had suffered internal injury and bleeding from hitting his head which may have led to his death.

Following the incident, the three accused in the case, identified as Manish Rathod, 25, Sagar Salve, 23, and Rupesh Saude, 33, were arrested.

A case has been registered against the three accused men under sections 302 (murder), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult to provoke breach of peace), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 34 (common intent) of the Indian Penal Code. They were produced before the court on Monday and remanded in police custody.

Further investigation into the incident is underway.
