The Saki Naka police have arrested two persons, including a woman, for stabbing two brothers to death on Tuesday.
Police said the men's father was also injured in the incident, which they attributed to personal enmity.
The incident occurred around 11 pm, when six persons barged into the Trimurti Nagar flat of the brothers — Avinash Singh (27) and Ashish (22) — on Veer Savarkar Road with knives and choppers and attacked them.
Avinash, an LIC agent, and Ashish, an engineer, were stabbed while their father Jeetendra suffered injuries after he tried to intervene.
Saki Naka police said the accused — Sunil Sharma (40), his brother Sanu (26) and brother-in-law Rakesh were released on bail in another case involving the two families on Tuesday evening.
The three were arrested a day before on a complaint of the victims, who are incidentally their relatives.
"The victims had lodged a complaint after a fight between them and the accused over a parking row. The complaint said the accused had attacked the victims when they protested against the parking of an autorickhaw at the spot on the Veer Savarkar Road where their uncle Dharmendra Singh used to park a tanker," senior police inspector S Dhanedhar said.
Besides the three released on bail, the attackers comprised Sunil's wife Sunita, another brother-in-law Pintu (25) and Rajesh (45).
They fled after the attack, leaving the family bleeding.
Residents who heard the mother's cries rushed the three men to Rajawadi Hospital, where the brothers were declared dead on arrival.
"We launched a hunt for the accused and arrested Rajesh and Sunita from their house. The other four are on the run," Dhanedhar said.
