A 15-year-old class 10 student has been arrested for allegedly murdering his father with a lid of a milk can in Noida. The incident occurred outside the house in Dankaur. Police suspect it to be a case of revenge, as the boy was thrown out of the house by his father following an argument, six months ago.

According to the victim’s son-in-law, the 45-year-old deceased had a complicated relationship with his son. He said,” The two of them had a troubled relationship. Nearly six months ago, my father-in-law had thrown him out of the house after the latter attacked him following an argument. However, the family had accepted the boy back. But, he was hiding a grudge against his father since that incident.”

The deceased has four children—two daughters and two sons. The victim was reportedly an ‘alcoholic’ because of which his wife has been living separately with her parents and their other son and unmarried daughter.

Farmood Ali Pundir, station house officer, Dankaur police station, said, the man sustained major injuries after his son thrashed him with the aluminum lid. He was rushed to Kailash hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

A case was registered under section 302 (murder) of the IPC against the accused. He was detained and sent to an observation home after being produced before a Child Welfare Committee on Monday, the report said.
