Man killed in cluster bus near Ashram Chowk, all accused arrested



NEW DELHI, Nov 25: In a shocking case of murder inside a public vehicle, Police have arrested all the five accused. All the accused are juvenile students aged between 12 to 15.

“They hopped into a bus near Ashram Chowk, tried to rob victim’s mobile phone and killed him when showed resistance,” said Romil Baniya, DCP, South East Delhi.

Mohammad Anas had boarded a bus from Ashram Chowk to Jamia Nagar at around 3:30 pm on Thursday. He was stabbed to death inside a cluster bus near Ashram in Delhi.

The accused are government school students, The Hindu quoted unidentified police officials as saying. The boys reportedly told the police that they carried a weapon as they often stole money and valuables from passengers on buses.

The conductor of the bus informed the cops that the man was waiting to get down at the next stop when he noticed that his newly purchased mobile phone was missing from his pocket.

Angry, he looked around and found a group of boys dressed up in a white shirt and navy blue pants, looking at him and laughing, the conductor told the cops. He frisked them on suspicion that they had stolen his phone, to which the boys took offence and stabbed him in his neck while one of the boys restrained him.

The conductor of the bus, Jai Bhagwan, who was a witness to the crime, said there were at least 40 other passengers in the bus at the time of the murder, but no one intervened. “Everything happened quickly. Before I could react, they had stabbed the youth and jumped out of the bus,” he told Hindustan Times.

Police are trying to ascertain if the accused boys are a part of a gang that hires boys in uniform to pickpocket passengers, so that suspicion can be avoided.

Anas, the eldest of three siblings, was a first-year B Com student at the Al Falah University in Faridabad and a resident of the city’s Jamia Nagar neighbourhood.
