In Delhi, two men, the owner of a salon and his brother killed their customer, Rupesh (38). The man’s son (13) begged them to stop beating his father but in vain. Rupesh lived in Burari, North Delhi with his wife and children.


Last Thursday, Rupesh went to a neighbourhood salon for a shave. When he was asked to pay Rs 50, he gave Rs 30 to Santosh, the owner. He said that he would give the remaining Rs 20 later. This led to them arguing heatedly as Santosh obviously wanted the money right away. After that, Santosh and his brother Saroj started to beat up Rupesh with a plastic pipe. A hospital later declared him dead.

A video clip, like from an onlooker’s phone, came out after the incident. It showed the two brothers beating Rupesh as his son tried stopping them. Even though others watched, not one stepped forward to help.

Police arrested the two brothers, Santosh and Saroj, on Thursday for the murder of Rupesh.
