A 19-year-old man, arrested for allegedly killing his parents and sister, was addicted to the online multiplayer game and had rented a room in Mehrauli in Delhi where he spent time with his friends after bunking classes, said a senior police officer. Suraj allegedly killed his father Mithilesh, mother Siya and sister in the early hours on Wednesday and then ransacked the house to make it look like a robbery.
However, he was arrested later in the evening on Wednesday. The officer said the accused showed no signs of remorse and he constantly kept saying, “please save me from the law”. During the investigation, the police found that Suraj had a Whatsapp group comprising nine to ten friends, where they would talk about bunking classes and made other plans about hanging out, the officer said. He was holding a grudge since his parents raised an objection about his lifestyle and his disinterest in studies.
