New Delhi: A 19-year-old youth who strangled his mother here and dumped her body in the box of a bed has been arrested, police said Monday.
Sumitra, 50, was found dead Sunday afternoon at the first floor of her house in Vikaspuri in west Delhi.
Sumitra’s elder son, who resided on the ground floor, found her body. As the victim’s younger son Rohit who was residing with her was missing, police went after him.
Rohit was arrested Sunday night from Subhash Nagar in west Delhi. He confessed strangling his mother to death apparently to avenge the frequent beatings he was subjected to.
