The deceased was identified as Shubham Srivastav, a resident of Anand Parbat locality. He was a student of Class XI, they said.
According to a senior officer, police received information about the scuffle around 9 pm on Tuesday, following which a team was dispatched to the spot.
"Srivastav was taken to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead. A case has been registered under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and police are trying to nab the accused, who are absconding. The body has been sent to RML Hospital for autopsy," the officer said.
