New Delhi: A 30-year-old man was allegedly beaten, thrown off from the third floor of his house and critically injured in Wazirpur area by two neighbours over personal enmity, police said.

The complainant said Shankar was attacked by Govinda and his brother-in-law Deepak past midnight on Wednesday. The two were drunk when they barged into the house after inquiring about Shanker’s presence, said police.

They assaulted him in the room and then threw him off from the third floor of the house, the complainant said.
