Kanpur, Jan 28: In a gory incident where a man shot a class 6 student on January 19, it was revealed that the former was a drug addict and there was no motive behind killing the boy. He has confessed that he was jittery for not getting his daily dose of drugs and was looking for drug peddlers when he encountered the boy.
Heera (the boy) was repairing his cycle on Tuesday night when Shah Alam (the murderer) asked him to give way. The boy refused to budge and said that there was enough space for him to pass through.
Alam felt humiliated and took out his pistol and shot him five times and fled from TT Park in Barra area of Kanpur. POlice could reach out to him when one of his friends to whom he had confessed informed the police. Vishal Pandey, the circle officer of Govind Nagar said,"Alam has confessed to the crime; we have recovered his pistol that he buried near his house in Sanigawan area."
His motorcycle and the gun that he had buried at his home have also been recovered. On Tuesday, the Akbarpur police informed the Barra police that Alam was hiding at a relative's place, which is when he was taken into custody.
