Youth abuses mother, brother murders him

A youth was stabbed to death by his brother after the victim vebally abused their mother in west Delhi’s Nihal Vihar late on Wednesday. In another incident, a woman has been killed by her brother-in-law after she refused to give him money.

Irfan, 28, was arrested in his Laxmi Park home on Thursday for the murder of Mohammad Abdul, 25, after a case of murder was lodged against Irfan with Nihal Vihar police station.
According to police, Saira Bano, 50, and his two sons — Irfan and Ibrahim — disowned Abdul from their property few months back due to his bad habits.

“Abdul was of the opinion that his mother was the main reason behind his sufferings and that was why he often used to misbehave with her,” a police official said.

Around 11.15 pm on Wednesday, Abdul arrived at the house and started abusing his mother.

When despite repeated warnings from Irfan and Ibrahim, Abdul continued misbehaving with Saira, Irfan picked up a knife and stabbed him in his abdomen.

Abdul was immediately taken to Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital, but was declared brought dead upon arrival.
