New Delhi: A 19-year-old man was beaten to death after he intervened in an argument over a parking issue, involving his cousin, in Outer Delhi's Sultan Puri area, police said Friday.
The incident took place on Thursday around 3.30 pm at a market place in the area.
The deceased, Varun, was thrashed by Mannu, his brother Ravi and some other people, who are at large, Seju Kuruvilla, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer), said.
On Thursday, Jatin and his friend Deepanker were eating kachori at the market when Mannu along with his friend came there on a scooter and stopped the vehicle in front of them, he said.

Mannu and his friend started beating Jatin. On seeing this, Deepanker ran and called Jatin's cousin Varun, who tried to pacify the situation, he said.
Mannu, too, called his brother Ravi and others. They started beating Varun furiously, Kuruvilla said.
Varun became unconscious and was admitted to the Jaipur Golden Hospital, where he suffered injuries to his ribs and severe internal bleeding. He died during the treatment, Kuruvilla added.
