New Delhi: The desire to impress their girlfriends has made two Delhi teenagers kill a child. The duo brutally killed a nine year old boy at Dwarka's Pochanpur village in south-west Delhi.
According to a Times of India report, the deceased, Lalit Sehrawat, a class 3 student , was on Monday lured by two teenagers, aged 16 and 17 (one of them was Lalit's distant cousin) to take him to a dance party, as Lalit was fond of dancing.
The duo planned to get ransom from the family to fuel their fantasies of buying an expensive car to impress their girlfriends, the report adds.
The victim was excited to go to party, got dressed up and went alongwith two boys at around 5 pm, with no idea, what they had planned for him.
The duo took Lalit to an isolated spot where they slit his throat in a col-blooded manner and hid his body under debris of under-construction flats.
When Lalit did not return home, his family began a frantic search for him and then filed a police complaint. The police got a lead from Lalit's 12-year-old sister, who told them that she last saw her brother with a known boy.
Within hours, police nabbed of one of the accused, who initially tried to act innocent, but later spill the beans. The body of the decased was recovered on Tuesday.
The police is now pushing for both the accused to be tried under the amended juvenile justice act, the report adds.
