On the day of the incident, he was on his way to work when he met the accused. One of them men from the group confronted Rahul as he had not paid him his money.
"It started as a minor confrontation. However, it blew out of proportion within a few minutes and the accused started beating him. He tried to run but he was chased by the group for a few metres before he was caught by the group." said a police official privy to the investigation.
