Street vendor pushed into cooking pot

Kolkata: A city street food vendor on Thursday succumbed to his injuries three days after he was pushed into a cooking-pot full of curry following an altercation with a customer, police said.
The incident happened in the city's Ezra Street area on Sunday.
According to the police, Mohamad Zakir, a customer of a roadside eatery, got involved in an altercation with vendor Lallan Singh.
Enraged over Singh's refusal to give him a chapati, Zakir - in an inebriated state - pushed the vendor who fell into the cooking pot full of boiling fish curry.
Singh was rushed to the Kolkata Medical College where he died.
Police, who arrested Zakir subsequent to the incident, have now charged him with culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
