Hyderabad: A 69-year-old man killed another man over a misconception.
The West Marredpally police have registered a case under Section 302 of the IPC, and further investigation is underway.

Suri went to Raju’s room and after sometime people rushed to Raju’s room hearing him scream. They found Raju in a pool of blood and the accused Babu holding a wooden stick with blood stains on it. Raju was rushed to the Gandhi Hospital. Unfortunately, however, Raju succumbed during treatment on Sunday to the head injury that he had sustained in the incident.”...
