A teenager has been arrested on Friday for allegedly killing his 6-year-old neighbour as he suspected him of “peeping into their bathroom” while his wife was taking bath. It has been reported that the boy had gone missing two days ago while playing outside his house in Okhla Phase II.
The boy lived with his parents and two elder brothers in Jeevan Jyoti Rajeev camp.
It was strong stink coming out from a house barely a few metres from boy’s house that grabbed neighbour’s attention in Okhla Phase II. “We got the room opened thinking it was a dead rat. But when the bed box was opened, we saw a sack inside. The boy’s hands and head were visible in it. His mouth was tied with a black cloth,” said neighbour Radha, who goes by her single name and was among the first to enter the room, reported Hindustan Times.
Romil Baaniya, DCP (southeast) said: “Rohit, a 19-year-old youth in the neighbourhood, has been arrested. He told us that the boy looked at his newly wedded wife while she took a bath and made lewd comments. Rohit allegedly attacked the boy in anger. His head hit the edge of the bed. On seeing him bleed, Rohit panicked and wrapped a cloth around his face. He then put the body in a bed box to hide it.”
Baaniya said Rohit confessed of attacking the boy in fit of rage.
