Investigations revealed that on the night, Mohammed Mahboob, a resident of Shahalibanda, along with his brother Yousuf Quadri, mother and sister went to Moosi hospital at Nalgonda crossroads to call on his sister-in-law, who was admitted there.
They were returning from the hospital when Raghu and his associate allegedly abused them without any reason.
When Mahboob objected, Raghu and his associate attacked him with stones and also kicked his mother in the stomach, an official release stated Friday.
