NEW DELHI: Po­lice on Satur­day morn­ing ap­pre­hended three mi­nors for al­legedly mur­der­ing a 14-year-old boy in cen­tral Delhi’s Anand Par­bat area a day ear­lier.the ap­pre­hended mi­nors were later sent to a cor­rec­tional home.

A po­lice of­fi­cer associated with the case said that one of the ap­pre­hended mi­nors, a 16-yearold, had been an­gry over the vic­tim’s ‘friend­ship’ with a girl.

“The boy had warned the vic­tim sev­eral times to stay away from the girl,” said the of­fi­cer. “A few days ago, the boy had seen him talk­ing to the girl. It left him en­raged and he dis­cussed the mat­ter with two of his friends, who promised him to help him. The mi­nor planned to kill the teenager and his two friends, both mi­nors, agreed to be the part of the plan.”

The in­ci­dent took place when the vic­tim was sit­ting around a bon­fire with his friends in Tali Basti area, said po­lice.

The three mi­nors al­legedly lured the 14-year-old to a nearby lane by say­ing that they wanted to dis­cuss and sort out their dif­fer­ences.

The three mi­nors al­legedly over­pow­ered him and be­gan at­tack­ing him with knives and in­flicted al­most a dozen stab wounds. When the teenager screamed for help and some lo­cals rushed for help, the three boys threw away their knives and fled, the po­lice said.

A lo­cal res­i­dent called the po­lice con­trol room and in­formed them about the crime. The in­jured boy’s fam­ily mem­bers were also in­formed.

He was rushed to a nearby hospi­tal where doc­tors de­clared him brought dead. Po­lice said the teenager’s fam­ily mem­bers work in dif­fer­ent fac­to­ries in Anand Par­bat area.

The at­tack­ers were ap­pre­hended from var­i­ous places in cen­tral Delhi by early Satur­day morn­ing. They were pro­duced be­fore the ju­ve­nile jus­tice board that sent them to the cor­rec­tion home.

A case of mur­der was reg­is­tered against them at the Anand Par­bat po­lice sta­tion. The body of the mi­nor boy was handed over to his fam­ily after the au­topsy, said the po­lice.
