New Delhi: A 28-year-old gym owner was stabbed to death allegedly by a disc jockey (DJ) in West Delhi’s Punjabi Bagh area following a quarrel over playing a song at a birthday party. The incident took place on Sunday in a restaurant at Club Road, DCP (West) Vijay Kumar said.
The deceased was identified as Vijaydeep (28), a resident of Tilak Nagar, who died on the spot after he was brutally stabbed by the DJ. The accused was identified as DJ Yuni alias Deepak Bisht, a resident of Burari. He worked at Raftaar Bar in Punjabi Bagh area.
According to the police, Ishmit was celebrating his birthday with his friends on the third floor of the building.
