The incident was reported at Mauhar village under Kothi police station limits. Rajkumar Kol (30) was in attendence at a family function organised by his elder brother and Rakesh Kol (35) on Friday night when the unfortunate incident happened.

A sound system was used to play music during the programme and a thrilled Rajkumar was dancing when Rakesh decided to mellow things down a bit. The host turned off the loudspeakers, which offended his younger brother, Kothi police station in-charge Rupendra Rajput told news agency PTI.

The accused was placed under arrest, and the weapon used in the crime was seized.
