A 16-year-old Eccles youth is in Police custody after he stabbed a 22-year-old man to death from the same community as the man was beating on him for talking to his reputed wife.
The dead man has been identified as Intaz Alli.
According to the Police, Alli’s reputed wife was on her way from work in the company of the teenager, who was riding along side her and carrying her bag as he usually does.
The jealous Alli, who noticed the two while driving motor car with license plate number PSS 2435, struck down the teen and as the young man attempted to get up and run away, he apprehended him and started to beat him.
The teen, who was still in possession of the woman’s bag, reportedly reached into the bag and grabbed a knife that the woman usually carried with her and dealt the reputed husband a stab to the neck.
The man collapsed and was rushed to Georgetown Hospital by a friend, but was pronounced dead on arrival.
The teenager was taken into custody as the investigations were launched. The alleged murder weapon has since been retrieved.
