A similar incident occurred in 2015 in Delhi NCR when a 23-year-old was killed after a fight broke out at a birthday party Vasundhara over alcohol.
The victim has been identified as 23-year-old Rahul, a resident of Ashok Nagar. On the fatal night, Rahul along with his friend Vishnu came to Vasundhara to attend the birthday party of their friend Gaurav.
During the celebrations, Rahul picked up the liquor bottle from which Vishnu was drinking. This enraged Vishnu and a scuffle started between the two. During the fight, Vishnu hurled a water-filled jug towards Rahul which hit him on the head, killing him.
