A man in India who was diagnosed with throat cancer has allegedly shot dead the work colleague who introduced him to smoking.

Reports describe how Mustakeem Ahmad became overcome with rage towards his colleague, named only as Inayat, after a doctor said smoking both weed and cigarettes contributed to the disease.
The two men had been working as chefs at a restaurant in west Delhi, which was owned by the killer’s brother-in-law. It sounds like there were also some underlying factors that contributed to the shooting, including that Ahmad resented Inayat because he was more successful at work.
Deputy police commissioner Sibesh Singh said:
Though Ahmad and Inayat were friends at the workplace, Inayat was reportedly better at his job and well-behaved and soon became the favourite of the restaurant owner.
In the course of time, Ahmad developed throat infection, forcing him to consult a doctor. Ahmad has claimed that the doctor told him he had developed throat cancer due to excessive smoking.
He then attempted to get Inayat fired, but in fact it was Ahmed who ended up getting the sack when his work performance deteriorated. After moving back to his native village, Ahmed decided the only thing to do was to buy a gun and shoot his former colleague. Singh added:
He first practised firing in his village, before returning to Delhi a few days ago. He was carrying his loaded pistol to the restaurant and had planned to kill Inayat if he failed to get him fired from the job. That is what eventually happened. Ahmad ended up picking a fight with Inayat. He later shot at him in the middle of the argument.
Inayat was rushed to hospital but died of his injuries, while Ahmad was arrested. This story has the makings of a Greek tragedy. What a waste of not one, but two lives. Now Inayat is dead despite the fact that it’s not technically his fault that Ahmad got sick (you can’t force someone to smoke) and now Ahmad is probably going to spend the rest of his life in jail. So pointless.
