Hyderabad: A class-XII student, who entered a freestyle fight on the street to earn some pocket money, paid with his life in Mir Chowk of the Old City here. The WWE-style fight was reportedly organised by a group of 15 boys of the locality. 

The incident took place on May 3, but came to light only on Sunday after one of the boys who was present at the fight posted the footage on social media, said V Satyanarayana, the South Zone DCP. The police have arrested seven suspects, including four minors, and decided to exhume the victim’s body for post-mortem.

The footage shows Mohammad Nabeel (17), dressed in black and white sportswear, fighting another boy, Abez Ahmad, wearing a brown trouser and a blue shirt. Another boy, Dollar Waseem, acting as a referee, whispers into their ears and leaves them to a no-holds-barred fight. 

The footage also gives a running commentary of the fight, probably by the boy who was shooting it on his mobile phone. It shows the boys raining punches on each other and Nabeel collapsing on the floor.

The police said the boys then rushed him

to hospital on a motorcycle, where the doctor declared him brought dead.

The panic-stricken boys then called Nabeel’s home and told his parents that he fell from a motorcycle and died. “They also didn’t file a formal complaint with the police as Nabeel didn’t have a driver’s licence,” said Dastagir, Nabeel’s father.

However, a week later, Dastagir, who returned from Dubai where he works as a driver, felt something fishy and decided to file a complaint. The Mir Chowk police have a booked a murder case and are waiting for the autopsy report.

The South Zone police also said that the culture of street fight for money was growing in the Old City and young boys were taking to it after the police successfully put a check on speed motorbike racing. Police are also looking into other footage of such street fights.

Police have written to the senior officials seeking permission to exhume the body of conducting a post-mortem, which would be conducted by a team of doctors on Monday, a murder case will be registered against the accused persons.

Very sad news without any compensation……………. The Question is, who will responsible for this accident, PARENTS, CHILDREN & ENTIRE ENVIRONMENT OF OUR SOCIETY. Every parent must have desire and wants to hold the children in the safe zone while at home. The major difficulties of parents, once the child to do the thrill or fun (which cause of accidents) without the permission of the parents. The motivation behind the excitement to do the thrill or fun gain from the television or just copying the others in society. Almighty Allah bless on the parents, those who works more than Eight hours to earn the bread for the Family and save the children from all the evils and accidents. Ameen. Anwar Masih Uddin

I agree with u Mr. Anwar Masih uddin, that they want thrill but u know in the case of our beloved cricketers son or this case, the intention is of thrill or adventure but it is crossing the limits. i.e himaqath. Allah TaAlaa guide us to the right path. And helps all of us to choose middle path in all walks of life.
