The victim taught Sanskrit in a college. He had called his girlfriend over and wanted Himanshu to go out at 1.30am. Himanshu told cops that Hitesh had been asking him to leave every other day
This time Himanshu refused, saying he had nowhere to go so late in the night.
Police received a call at 3am, one hour after the killing. Cops said Himanshu initially cooked up a story about two men barging in and killing his brother. They said he had hidden the dumbbell under his bed, which was later seized.
The landlord, however, told the cops that nobody had entered the house that night. There was just one en trance to the first-floor flat -through the main gate of the house on the ground floor, where the landlord lived.
