New Delhi: A tragic murder incident happened in the capital of the country. A six-year-old boy was killed by a man on suspicion of peeping into his bathroom when his wife was bathing in southeast Delhi, police said on Saturday.
The boy had gone missing from a slum in Okhla Phase II on September 27. Rohit (19) allegedly killed the boy on Wednesday, Romil Baaniya, according to the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast).
The accused hid the body in a box bed. He later stuffed it in a sack, which was found near the boy’s house this morning. Some locals informed police on noticing the strong stench.
On finding “Rukmani” written on the sack, a shopkeeper in the area told police that Rukmani’s son Rohit had purchased flour from him in that bag, Mr Baaniya said.
The accused lived a few meters away from the boy’s home. Rohit went into hiding and switched off his phone, police said. He was arrested on Saturday.
During questioning, Rohit told police the boy would peep into his bathroom and pass lewd remarks at his wife. He told police that the boy’s father had also abused him once in front of his wife. Police are awaiting the postmortem report, said the DCP.
