A 17-year-old boy was arrested for allegedly killing his aunt after the latter forced him to elope with her. The incident took place when the boy had reached the woman's house in Bengaluru, Karnataka on Tuesday evening.
The teenager reportedly had an affair with his aunt. According to a report in the Times of India, police said when the woman asked him to elope with her, he resisted. Following this, the woman attacked the boy with a scissor. He snatched the pair of scissors from her hand and stabbed her with it. He had also set the bedsheet on fire before fleeing.
The incident came to light when the woman's neighbours noticed fumes coming out of her house. They called police, who then reached the spot only to find the woman's body lying in a pool of blood. She had around 15 stab wounds, police said.
Meanwhile, the woman's husband said he had a fight with her after he came to know about her affair with his minor nephew.
"He sent his sons to his grandparents' place as he did not want to fight in front of them. The probe revealed that the husband was present at his workplace when the murder took place. Then we found that the minor boy had come to meet the woman in the afternoon," an officer was quoted by the report as saying.
Police said that the woman wanted to elope with the boy after her husband came to know about her affair.
A police source quoted the accused boy as saying, "She said her husband had discovered their affair and forced me to run away with her. I refused [to elope], following which she grew angry. She attacked me with scissors, and snatching it from her hand, I stabbed her."
"I set the bedsheet on fire and locked the house before fleeing," the boy reportedly said.
The minor was sent to a juvenile home after the incident came to light.ALSO READ | Aryan Khan drugs case: Why it is difficult to get bail under NDPS Act ALSO READ | https://www.indiatoday.in/india/story/aryan-khan-drugs-case-why-it-is-difficult-to-get-bail-under-ndps-act-1867438-2021-10-21 ALSO READ | Caught on camera: Madurai restaurant worker stabbed multiple times, four held ALSO READ | Rajasthan teacher beats student to death, tells his father he's 'acting dead' ALSO READ | 18-year-old kidnapped, gangraped by 4 in Madhya Pradesh, victim rescued from Gujarat
