An argument over an old Rs 10 banknote cost a 35-year-old man his life in Dadar in Mumbai, police said Tuesday.
According to police, the victim Mohammed Hanif Siddiqui had handed the old banknote to a vendor while purchasing vegetables from him outside Dadar (West) railway station on Monday night.

Siddiqui was rushed to hospital where he was declared dead, he said. The vegetable seller, who fled from the crime scene, was later arrested.
A case of murder has been registered against the accused, the official said.
