(FreshAsFrankie) A 25-year old man who had been diagnosed with throat cancer murdered the friend that introduced him to cigarettes.
The Hindustatin Times reports that upon learning of the diagnosis, Mustakeem Ahmad became so enraged he purchased a gun, practiced shooting so he wouldn’t miss his target and shot dead the victim, 25-year old Inayat, at the restaurant where the two had worked together as chefs in West Delhi.
Ahmad was also upset that Inayat was performing better on the job.
“Though Ahmad and Inayat were friends at the workplace, Inayat was reportedly better at his job and well-behaved and soon became the favorite of the restaurant owner,” police told the Hindustan Times.
Ahmad was eventually fired from the job. He decided he would either get Inayat fired or kill him.
On Thursday, August 24, he returned to the restaurant to carry out his plan.
“He was carrying his loaded pistol to the restaurant. Ahmad had planned to kill Inayat if he failed to get him fired from the job. That is what eventually happened. Ahmad ended up picking a fight with Inayat. He later shot at him in the middle of the argument,” said an investigator.
Ahmad fled the scene but was later captured by police.
