    The identity of the17-year-old juvenile has not been public, while a manhunt is currently underway for two more absconding accused.

    At 9.42 p.m. on Friday night, the Sarita Vihar police station received a PCR call regarding a stabbing incident.

    A police team which rushed to the spot discovered that the victim, Arvind Mandal, a resident of Aali Vihar, got into an altercation with a man named Manoj Haldar on Friday evening while he was returning home with his son.

    The victim had an earlier dispute with Haldar, police said.
