For Open Firing at Friend’s Place in Dwarka, Teen Apprehended

New Delhi, Dwarka- As if we had a dearth of incidents happening in Dwarka, here comes a new one. A 17-year-old teen opened fire at his friend’s house in Dwarka to threaten the latter. Even this wasn’t enough, so he got a video recorded for the same and circulated it to flaunt.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Dwarka) Anto Alphonse said that on Saturday, they received a complaint from a woman, a resident of Uttam Nagar’s Nawada Extension. “The complainant, who is the mother of the victim, said that the accused had come to their residence along with another man around 2.30 a.m. They asked her about her son. The accused, she said, started firing and abusing her and also threatened to kill her son,” Mr. Alphonse said.

The woman told the police that her son and the accused became friends around three years ago, adding that they had a fight a few months back after which they were not on talking terms.

The police said that a case under IPC Sections 440 (mischief committed after preparation made for causing death or hurt) and 34 (common intention) was registered and an investigation was taken up.

Mr. Alphonse said that a video of the incident had emerged on the social media that was widely shared which further infuriated the situation. A plan was laid near Uttam Nagar bus terminal from where the accused was apprehended and a pistol with a live round was seized from his possession, the police said.

The police also said that the accused had got the video filmed by his friend and later shared it on the social media to incite fear among the people.

A senior police officer, meanwhile, said that the accused was earlier apprehended in November 2018 for firing outside a house and then released in December. “On January 1st, he had allegedly shot dead a woman of a Dwarka-based family after his extortion demands were not met. He again had made another extortion call to the family on January 4th. He was captured on January 7th for allegedly killing the woman and sent to a juvenile home but later released on bail.”

It’s evident here that teenagers these days are so much engrossed with violence and passion, that they like to turn to illegal measures that are enough dangerous and suppressive.
