Only Son allegedly killed parents to marry ‘Facebook’ girlfriend
A married man and only son of his parents confessed to have killed his parents with the help of two accomplices in South Delhi to get hold of their property and to marry his Facebook girlfriend.
Abdul Rehman, a Jamia Nagar resident and main accused, along with Nadeem Khan, 32, of west Delhi’s Nangloi were arrested on Monday after Rehman broke down during sustained interrogation and confessed to his crime. Nadeem was arrested later. One accused Guddu is still at large.
Rehman had roped in Nadeem and Guddu with a promise of Rs 2.5 lakh for killing his father Shamim, 55, and mother Taslim Bano, 55, in Jamia Nagar.
“During interrogation, Rehman told police that he is already married and used to work at a call centre but left in 2016 due to his drug addiction. He met a girl on ‘Facebook’, who stayed in Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Chinmoy Biswal said.
“Rehman wanted to marry his girlfriend but his parents were against it and advised him to focus on his married life instead. Since he was the only son of his parents, Rehman planned to kill them in order to get their property and jewellery,” Biswal said.
Police said Rehman along with Nadeem and Guddu smothered Taslim Bano and Shamim on April 28 while they were asleep at their house.
After Nadeem and Guddu escaped from the spot, Rehman somehow locked the door from inside and later concocted a story that his parents were killed by robbers, the officer added.
