An argument broke out between Raju Nandeshwar, 35, and the accused Devansh Waghode who share a rented room. Waghode allegedly stabbed Nandeshwar in his head using a sharp object, killing him on spot, an official said, as per PTI reports.

In a case reported in April, a man was arrested in Masuri town here for allegedly killing his 66-year-old mother by repeatedly hitting her with a brick for refusing to give him Rs 1 lakh. The incident took place when the woman, Ramrati, was sleeping outside a room in a wheat field owned by her.
Superintendent of Police (Rural) Neeraj Kumar Jadaun said that on the basis of a tip-off, the accused was arrested from Ikla village, adding that he has been identified as Bhagat Singh.
During interrogation, he confessed to having killed his mother.
He told the police that he was in dire need of Rs 1 lakh to get his house plastered and that her mother, despite “having a good bank balance”, had refused to give him the money.
Singh reached the field where his mother was already present. The son then killed the elderly woman by hitting her thrice with a brick, the police had said.
