Delhi Man Hacks Step-son To Death To Teach Wife A 'lesson'
A man allegedly hacked his 12-year-old stepson to death after an argument with his wife at their home in west Delhi's Nihal Vihar, police said on Saturday. Police said the child's mother had refused to go on a short trip to their native village in Uttar Pradesh's Shahjahanpur district because of her son's ongoing exams. This had left the accused, identified as Sewa Ram, seething with anger and hacked his step-son to death. Sewa Ram fled the crime scene but was later caught and booked for murder. Sewa Ram and Vidya lived with four children at a rented house in Nihal Vihar. The husband worked as a rickshaw-puller, while Vidya is employed at a nearby factory.
