New Delhi: A 19-year-old youth allegedly strangled his elder sister and stabbed her body with a knife following an argument with her over a property in Shahbad Dairy area of outer Delhi this morning.
After the incident, the youth identified as Umesh walked to a nearby police post with the blood smeared weapon and admitted to the crime.
According to a senior police official, parents of the duo had gone to Rohini to resolve a property issue during which the victim, Vandana, got into an argument with her brother, Umesh, over the ownership of their office.
Vandana looked after the family business along with their father.
“As per Umesh’s version, Vandana had refused to part with her share of the property and had asked him to resolve the matter with their father. This led to a heated argument following which Umesh strangled her with a dupatta and stabbed her 5-6 times with a kitchen knife,” the official said.
“After killing her, Umesh panicked and tried to even hide the body. But then he left her on the bed and walked to the nearest police post. Policemen deployed there called the PCR and once the cops arrived he handed over the knife to them and narrated the incident. He was then taken to the police station,” the official said.
The body was sent for post-mortem and the parents of the youth were informed.
The parents later staged a protest at the police station claiming a conspiracy in the incident. They claimed that Umesh has been framed to save the actual killers.
“A case of murder has been registered and further probe is on,” the official added.
