Report  Web Desk : MUMBAI: An Indian man shot dead his colleague for allegedly introducing him to smoking which led to his throat cancer later. According to Indian press, the accused man identified as Mustakeem Ahmad, a 25-year-old cook at a west Delhi restaurant, was arrested on Friday. Ahmad told his interrogators that after his throat cancer diagnosis he was allegedly so consumed with hate and revenge towards the victim that he purchased a pistol and started practice how to fire the weapon in order not to miss his target. The victim, Inayat was working in the same restaurant as Ahmad was. They were working at a restaurant in Uttam Nagar in west Delhi for the last 18 months. “Though Ahmad and Inayat were friends at the workplace, Inayat was reportedly better at his job and well-behaved and soon became the favourite of the restaurant owner,” said Shibesh Singh, DCP (southwest). This frustrated Ahmad and he developed an enmity against Inayat. Ahmad allegedly stated that he started smoking cigarettes and later took to marijuana under the influence of the victim, Inayat. 02
