Man kills minor for ogling at wife


A man killed a six-year-old boy for watching his wife bathe, stuffed the body in a plastic bag and put it inside a bed box in a relative's house in southeast Delhi's Okhla area, the police said on Friday.

Rohit, 19, told the police that the boy, who was a neighbour, would peep into their washroom and watch his wife bathe, and also pass indecent remarks. The accused, a labourer, also said that the class I student's father had abused him in front of his newly-wed wife, which was also a trigger for his revenge.

"The accused said he did not sexually assault the child. However, we will wait for the post-mortem report," said Deputy Commissioner of Police Romil Baaniya.

The family approached the police when the boy went missing on Wednesday while playing outside his house. A case was registered and a hunt launched to find the boy. On Friday morning, a strong stench started coming from a locked room. Police were informed about a body found in a plastic bag, a few houses from boy's house after neighbours got the room opened. "The bag was stuffed inside a bed box. The body was identified as that of the missing boy," said Baaniya.

On Wednesday, Rohit took the boy along with him and hit him. The boy started bleeding profusely and Rohit got scared. He wrapped a piece of cloth around his mouth and stuffed the body in the bag and put it into the bed box. When the police tried to contact Rohit, his mobile phone was switched off, and he was missing from the area. In order to evade arrest, he was hiding at another location in the slums and was arrested from there.
