Youth kills friend for forcing into homosexual relation, arrested

A 20-year-old boy killed his friend because he was irritated over coercion for a homosexual relationship. The incident occurred at Hauz Qazi in central Delhi, police aid Tuesday.

A day after police found the body of 17-year-old Danish from a shop where he was employed in Hauz Qazi, they arrested his friend – Wasim – for the murder, additional deputy commissioner of police, (central) Aslam Khan said.

Both Wasim and Danish worked in the same shop. Wasim lives in Hauz Qazi and was arrested on Tuesday.

Danish was found dead inside the shop on Monday and Wasim was missing since then. This led to suspicion that he might be involved in the murder. Mohammad Shamim, the shop owner told investigators that Danish’s mobile phone was also missing.

Acting on a specific tip off, police arrested Wasim from Chawri Bazar Metro station. “During interrogation, Wasim told us that Danish was forcing him for a homosexual relationship despite his reluctance,” Khan said.

On Sunday, Danish had insisted once again and Wasim had refused.

Irritated at the regular insistence, Wasim attacked Danish with a knife, killed him on the spot and fled.
