Indian teen allegedly killed in kite-flying row
NEW DELHI (AP) - A group of teenagers kicked and beat a 17-year-old to death over a kite-flying dispute on the rooftops of the Indian capital, police said on Monday.
Rajan Chand had been flying a kite in a north-east Delhi neighbourhood on Friday when he apparently angered another boy by snapping the line on his kite, police said.
The boy allegedly threatened Chand, who ignored the threat as a passing remark, police said.
The next evening the boy and three others allegedly attacked Chand and his friend, hitting Chand with a metal object and beating the two until they were unconscious in the street, police said.
