A Indian man has been murdered by a friend following a row over a card game.
According to a report in the Hindustan Times, the 24-year-old labourer from Delhi was attacked after a dispute over a 180 rupee pot (£1.80). “The victim and his friends were drinking and playing cards last evening when an argument broke out over who had won the Rs. 180 in the pot,” a senior police officer told the paper. Despite other players trying to calm the situation, the argument escalated until a man took out a kitchen knife and attacked his opponent. “Govind (the victim) was stabbed multiple times in the chest and abdomen before he was rushed to the Bara Hindu Rao hospital by a team from the local police station. He was, however, pronounced dead,” the police officer told the newspaper. A man was later arrested by Indian police. The unfortunate Indian victim isn't the first man to be killed after an argument over a card game.
