New Delhi, March 3: In a shocking incident, a nine-year-old boy was brutally murdered by two teenagers in Pochanpur village of Dwarka area of south-west Delhi.
According to reports, the deceased, Lalit Sehrawat, a student of Class 3, was on Monday, Feb 29, lured by two teenagers, aged 16 and 17 (one of them was Lalit's distant cousin) to take him to a dance party, as Lalit was fond of dancing.
The little boy, who was excited to go to party, got dressed up and went alongwith two boys at around 5 pm, with no idea, what they had planned for him.
The duo took Lalit to an isolated spot where they slit his throat in a col-blooded manner and hid his body under debris of under-construction flats.
When Lalit did not return home, his family began a frantic search for him and then filed a police complaint.
The police got a lead from Lalit's 12-year-old sister, who told them that she last saw her brother with a known boy.
Within hours, police got hold of one of the accused, who initially tried to act innocent, but later spill the beans.
The killers had planned to demand ransom money from Laliit's parents, to buy a car and gifts for their girlfriends.
Lalit's body was recovered on Tuesday, March 1. The second accused was arrested from Jind district in Haryana.
