Lloyd Nehemiah who hails from Meghalaya but was living in Bengaluru, died on Tuesday, two days after being beaten up by three young men for objecting to loud music they were playing on Sunday midnight.

The trio pushed Lloyd and when he fell down they started beating him. Some neighbours and Lloyd’s sister tried to intervene and stop the men but they too were attacked. The incident took place at Vignan Nagar, Bengaluru.

Lloyd, brother of Colonel David Nehemiah who is currently serving in Kashmir, was then admitted to a hospital in Bengaluru for the injuries he had sustained from the thrashing.

All three accused — identified as Ram Samanth Rai, Basudev Samanth Rai and Abhishek Singh- were arrested after a complaint was filed at HAL police station, Bengaluru on Sunday.
