New Delhi, Nov 7 (PTI) A 28-year-old man died and several others were injured in a scuffle that broke out after one of them urinated in front of a grocery shop in southeast Delhi, police said Saturday.

The deceased has been identified as Amandeep Singh, who earlier worked at a travel company but recently lost his job, they said.
