'Mother's nagging pushed boy to murder'
GREATER NOIDA: A day after apprehending a 15-year-old for murdering his mother and 11-year-old sister in Gaur City-2 residential society of Greater Noida West, Gautam Buddh Nagar police said that the boy claimed he took the extreme measure because of his mother's constant nagging.
Police said on Saturday that the juvenile used a cricket bat, a pair of scissors and a pizza cutter to kill his mother and sister.
"The boy repeatedly hit his mother on the head with a bat and then his sister, as she was a witness in the crime. He then used a small scissor and pizza cutter to kill them both," said Love Kumar, Senior Superintendent of Police, Gautam Buddh Nagar.
Narrating the sequence of events as confessed by the boy, Kumar said that the boy then disposed his blood stained clothes in the house and left home at night, taking whatever cash was available at home and his mother's cell phone in a bag.
"The boy exited from the residential tower's basement, as no security guard was present and it was the only safe exit for him. He took a cab from outside the society to New Delhi Railway Station, from where he travelled to Ludhiana, Chandigarh, Shimla, and Chandigarh again, to Ranchi and then to Mughal Sarai, before getting detained at Varanasi," Kumar told reporters.
Sources added that the juvenile was addicted to a violent mobile video game 'High School Gangster', which possibly influenced him to commit the heinous crime.
However, senior police officials denied the fact and said that it was difficult to understand the psychology of a child, adding said that a series of events could have compelled him to kill his mother.
Kumar said the boy had claimed that his mother used to would often scold and beat him at home over his poor academics, which could have made him feel frustrated and distressed.
"He felt his sibling got more attention in the family. He was perhaps weak in studies and was constantly pressurised to study in which he didn't show interest. On the afternoon of the crime, his mother had scolded him and beaten him up after he was adamant and persisted on sitting on the couch and not the chair near the dining table to study," said Kumar.
"The boy is surely regretful about what he did. He was crying during the interrogation," the SSP added.
