A 42-year-old man has been stabbed to death allegedly by two people, who were reportedly drunk, after he objected to their behaviour, police said Wednesday.
A video of the incident uploaded by local web channels showed a man wearing a red shirt pulling aside the victim and attacking him with a sharp object in the Chariminar area.

The two later fled the area.
Citing preliminary investigation, the inspector said the two missing attackers were reportedly in a drunken state and had attacked Ravi as he objected to their behaviour.
A case of murder had been registered and a hunt launched to arrest the duo, police added.
