An 18-year-old man, working in a hotel as a cook, was on Saturday arrested for allegedly killing another worker over a paltry sum of Rs 100.
The accused was identified as Aftab alias Chand Manjur Khan, who works in a hotel in suburban Kurla.
Kalam Buttu Khan (18), who worked in the same hotel had borrowed Rs 100 from him to celebrate Eid earlier this week, the police said.
They had an altercation over delay in repaying the money, and in a fit of rage Aftab allegedly picked up a kitchen knife and stabbed Kalam, the police said.
Kalam was taken to a hospital but was declared dead before admission, a police official from Vinoba Bhave Nagar Police Station said.
