Delhi boy hangs himself, family claims murder

New Delhi, June 12 (IANS) A 17-year-old boy was found hanging from a ceiling fan in his house at Alipur in the west Delhi, police said Wednesday. The boy’s family has alleged that it was not a case of suicide, but murder.

Neeraj, the 17-year-old, was found hanging from the ceiling fan in his first-floor apartment Tuesday night.

“No suicide note was recovered. A case of abetment to suicide has been registered,” a police officer said.

The victim’s family told police that Neeraj was driving the scooty of one of his friends Tuesday evening, and met with a minor accident in which the vehicle was damaged.

“After the accident, his friend told him that he ought to pay Rs.8,000 as compensation. He was threatened, and told that a complaint would be made to his family if he did not pay up.
