New Delhi: A class 10 student was stabbed to death by three of his schoolmates in Madangir area of the national capital. Police have arrested all three juveniles in connection with the murder. However, the reason behind this extreme step has not been revealed.

Narrating the incident, police said that deceased Bhanu Pratap had come for his coaching when the incident happened. All the three accused attacked him following an argument. During the argument, one of the juveniles took out a knife and stabbed Bhanu several times.

Police added that they received information about the incident. “We received a PCR call at around 7.30 pm where the caller informed that three men stabbed boy and he is bleeding profusely,” said police.

Following the information, the team reached the spot and rushed the victim to a nearby hospital where the doctors declared him brought dead.

Police later informed deceased family members and his body was sent for a post-mortem examination.

In September, a 60-year-old woman and her differently-abled daughter were found bludgeoned to death inside their flat in Mianwali area of the national capital. Reportedly, the murder took place last evening. Police said that the incident was reported after the maid noticed the bodies. She immediately made PCR call.

The deceased was identified as Shashi Talwar and Nidhi. Police had said, “Shashi Talwar’s throat was slit & her daughter Nidhi was killed with blunt force. Their hands & mouth were tied.” Ruling out the possibility of robbery, police said that the entry in the house was friendly because there were 2 teacups lying in the drawing room. The pieces of jewellery are intact.

In a similar incident, a 50-year-old woman and her two daughters, aged 19 and nine years, were found murdered at their residence in northeast Delhi’s Brahmapuri area. The incident came to light when neighbours had called up police complaining of the intolerable stench emanating from their house, which was locked from the outside. When it was opened, the highly decomposed bodies of the three were found, a senior official had said. The victims were identified as Saira (50) and her daughters Mehrunisha and Shabnam.
