NEW DELHI: Asked to go out of the house late at night so that his brother and his girlfriend could spend time together, a post-graduate DU student bludgeoned his elder sibling to death with a dumbbell at their flat in north Delhi's Burari, early Monday morning.
The brothers, whose parents live in Jhansi, argued over the issue as the accused, Himanshu Verma, 23, didn't want to stay out in the cold. In a fit of rage, he allegedly threw a dumbbell at his brother Hitesh, 28, and kept hitting him with it till he passed out.
The victim taught Sanskrit in a college. He had called his girlfriend over and wanted Himanshu to go out at 1.30am. Himanshu told cops that Hitesh had been asking him to leave every other day .
This time Himanshu refused, saying he had nowhere to go so late in the night.
Police received a call at 3am, one hour after the killing. Cops said Himanshu initially cooked up a story about two men barging in and killing his brother. They said he had hidden the dumbbell under his bed, which was later seized.
The landlord, however, told the cops that nobody had entered the house that night. There was just one en trance to the first-floor flat -through the main gate of the house on the ground floor, where the landlord lived.
"During sustained investigation, Himanshu broke down and confessed his crime," said Madhur Verma, deputy commissioner of police (north).
Of course demonetization is to blame. Earlier the elder brother would have given him some money to hang out at a bar, and he would have been grateful and not in an murderous rage.
Opposition needs to increment the count of lives lost due to demonetization
they both could have shared the girl
I can only imagine the pain of parents! Also the brother will regret all his life! What caused it? Girl i don''t think so.. Bullying by elder brother built up from childhood!?! Did their parent see the sign?!
I think Delhi CM should resign for this!
It must be the woman who created the rift
What to say? A small problem of love making has resulted in a murder. It is also so cruel for a brother to ask his brother to go out at 1.30 AM in a cold night.
If you want to have sex with your girlfriend it is better to go to a cheap hotel rather than asking your brother to get out of the house 1.30 pm at night. I support the brother who threw the dumbell. Even though killing is not the solution.
