A dispute over honking turned tragic for a 21-year-old man in Maharashtra after three men attacked him and his father Gautam Ohol, leading to the latter's death.

The man was riding a motorcycle with his father in the Sapatne village in the Solapur district on Tuesday when three men objected to his honking. The dispute led the trio to attack the 21-year-old. When his father tried to stop the three from beating him up, the group started to thrash him as well.

Gautam Ohol and his son were taken to a hospital in Solapur, where Mr Ohol succumbed to his injuries on Thursday.

The police have arrested one of the assailants, identified as Somnath Lad. Further probe is on, the police said.
