Delhi teen kills parents, sister for scolding him to focus on studies

New Delhi: In a bizarre incident, a teenager stabbed to death his parents and sister at his residence in Kishangarh. According to police, the 19-year-old has confessed that he was tired of being scolded by his parents to focus on studies. The accused has been sent to 14-days judicial custody by Delhi’s Patiala House Court.

The confession came after Suraj (accuse) had led the police on a day-long wild goose chase. The boy was arrested on Wednesday evening.

The police said that Suraj first caught hold of his father, Mithilesh Verma and stabbed him eight times in the chest and belly. He then went to the other room and stabbed his mother Sia 38 seven times.

After killing his family members, Suraj plotted a story to tell to police.

The Accused tried to escape

According to the Times of India report, he alerted a neighbor, saying two intruders had barged into their house and murdered his family. He then inflicted minor injuries on himself to mislead investigators and claimed he escaped being killed as he played dead.

Police, though, ruled out the outsider theory as the main door of the house was shut from inside. After sustained interrogation he broke down and confessed. He told cops his family had been ill-treating him since he staged his own kidnapping three years ago.

Suraj began to seek revenge after his father beat him up in August for flying kites and not attending college – he was pursuing first year of civil engineering at a college in Gurugram
and threatened to throw him out of the house.

Since that day he had been seething anger and plotting revenge. He first planned to end his life but later changed his mind thinking it was his family which had to be punished.
