A photo shared over WhatsApp led to the death of a man in his 20s in Haryana's Sonipat, about 50 km from Delhi. The man, identified as Luv, was killed allegedly by a relative after an argument over a photo shared on a family WhatsApp group, said the police.

Dinesh, the relative, was upset over the photographs, said Luv's brother Ajay.

"After having dinner, we clicked some pictures and accidentally shared it on WhatsApp. After this, Dinesh invited us home, where he, along with other family members, attacked both of us with iron rods and bricks. Luv died on the spot, while my other brothers are injured and in hospital now," Ajay told news agency ANI.

A complaint has been registered against Dinesh and his family.
