Old Goa police have arrested Saneel Naik from Chimbel for his alleged role in the stabbing of a panch member Mohan Narve on Tuesday night near Killawada while two others Azam and Issack are on the run.
Speaking to this daily, the police officer attached to the Old Goa police station stated that on Tuesday night while watching the effigy of Narkasur there was a verbal duel between Narve and Azam ending in the stabbing.
Narve has been admitted in the Goa Medical College and Hospital for treatment.
Narve, while recalling the incident, said that while he was engrossed in watching the effigy of Narkasur, Azam came there and started arguing and Azam’s son stabbed him while Azam knocked him down.
Eyewitnesses said that there was darkness all around and so nobody could see who stabbed Narve.
Few others said that it was fallout of previous enmity and last year also there were clashes on Diwali eve between the groups.
