Body of a five-year-old boy, who was missing since January 7, was found in a suitcase hidden inside the house of a former tenant on Monday, police said on Tuesday.
Delhi Police said, the accused Avadesh Sakya,27, is an IAS aspirant. “He killed the minor because, he was asked not to party by his renters,” said a senior police officer of Delhi.
Police further added that Sakya had stayed with the victim’s family for the last seven years in North Delhi’s Sawroop Nagar and had recently shifted his home in the same neighbourhood.
“The victim was familiar to the accused and regularly visited his home even after shifting. No one doubted him as the victim and accused were very close to each other,” added Police.
The victim’s body was found in the suitcase after neighbours complained of foul smell coming from Sakya’s residence. “He initially avoided suspect by stating that the stench smell was due to dead rats,” said Delhi Police.
A senior police officer said, “On seeing the body it seems the boy was murdered soon after he went missing.”
“The accused during questioning told the police that he murdered the minor because he wanted to revenge humiliation by his parents. The accused was asked to vacate because of his party habits,” said a police officer part of the investigation team.
