"He was hit with bamboo sticks and metal rods. He tried to save himself and ran to the other side of the road. He fell down there and died after being hit by a stone on the head," said Ansh's cousin Anand Agarwal.
According to the police, Ansh was beaten up by around 30 boys from his college because he objected to an SMS that the main accused sent to his girlfriend. They say, Ansh's girlfriend got some lewd messages from the main accused and when Ansh got to know there was a scuffle between the two boys.
On Tuesday evening, the boys landed up at Ansh's house and when they didn't find him at home, they abducted his little brother. Ansh was then told to come to a particular place where the boys were waiting for him. He was then beaten up and later succumbed to his injuries.
The boys will be produced in a local court on Thursday.
