Two persons have been arrested for allegedly battering a man to death with a brick in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad district, police said on Saturday.
The incident took place in an under construction building of Badalpur area in Gautam Buddh Nagar on Friday morning, they said.
The victim, identified as Vipin Pal, was hit brutally with a brick while his hands and legs were tied, police said.
Ghaziabad SP (City) Manish Mishra told PTI that the culprits also allegedly misguided Vipin Pal’s family after the incident.
The duo called Vipin Pal’s family two hours after the incident and said that he has been kidnapped, police said.
Vipin Pal’s body was found by police at 11 pm on Friday, they said. Acting on surveillance inputs, police arrested the two suspects — Ashu and his brother Rohit — who are Vipin Pal’s old acquaintances, the official said.
