A 29-year-old man was fatally attacked by some persons for allegedly opposing illegal liquor trade here, an incident which comes close on the heels of a Dalit youth being killed over illicit liquor trade-related rivalry.

Manish Luthra was stabbed by some persons late last night in Basti Sheikh area here over an old enmity following which he died this morning, Assistant Commissioner of Police (West) Dalbir Singh Buttar said, adding the body has been sent for postmortem.



Police sources said they suspect that the accused are involved in liquor trade.

The locals claimed that Luthra was murdered for protesting illegal liquor trade in the area and had warned the accused that he would approach the police regarding the matter.

"The accused have been identified and a case has been registered against them in police station number 5. A manhunt has been launched to nab them," he said.

The incident comes days after a 20-year-old Dalit youth, who was allegedly involved in illegal liquor trade, was tortured to death and his leg chopped off by a rival group of liquor smugglers in Mansa of Punjab.
