A construction labourer was allegedly killed by his colleague who was caught while trying to dump the body in a creek in Palghar district of Maharashtra to hide the crime, a police official said on Thursday. The accused, Ramnaresh Nishad, and the victim, Pradeep Nishad, both from Uttar Pradesh and working as labourers at a rail bridge construction site in Dahanu here, had an argument over some issue on Tuesday night at their workplace, he said.

The accused, in a fit of anger, allegedly hit the victim with an iron pipe, killing him on the spot, the official at Dahanu police station said. He then tried to throw the body in a nearby creek but the construction site supervisor caught him and alerted the police about the incident, he said. The accused was subsequently arrested and booked under Indian Penal Code Sections 302 (murder) and 201 (causing the disappearance of evidence of offence), he added.
