Man arrested for brother's murder

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

A 27 years old man was arrested today for allegedly killing his brother over a monetary dispute.

Sana-ul-Haq Hussain, the accused, was arrested this morning, a senior police officer said.

Zia-ul-Haq Hussain, his elder brother, was found shot dead near Milan hotel in yesterday afternoon.

"After identifying the victim, we questioned his relatives and learnt that Sana-ul-Haq had come to Mumbai, but hadn't visited his brothers," said the officer.

Police got suspicious as Sana didn't turn up to visit the family even after the brother's death.

He was arrested at Kalyan station when he was on the way to Bihar, police said.

As per the preliminary investigation, one of Sana's friends stole mobile phones, and Sana gave them to Zia for selling them in the grey market.

The duo had a tiff with Zia over a payment, and in a fit of rage Sana shot his brother dead, police said.

His friend was absconding. Further probe was on.
