A caretaker at a DUSIB toilet complex was allegedly killed by an 18-year-old man, whose sister had committed suicide eight years ago purportedly after she was in a relationship with the deceased, police officers said.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central) Sanjay Kumar Sain said that the incident took place at Holi Chowk in Baljeet Nagar around 6 am when the deceased, Pappu, who was in his 40s, was looking after the DUSIB toilet complex and the accused stabbed him in the neck and chest.
The DCP said: “The forensics and crime team were called to the spot for inspection of the crime scene and preserve evidence… the accused, Ankit, was apprehended after CCTV cameras around the locality were scanned… Ankit’s sister was in a relationship with the deceased eight years ago after which she committed suicide. Ankit held Pappu responsible.”

On the day of the incident, Ankit planned to kill Pappu while he was on the job and went to the DUSIB toilet complex and killed him inside the premises, said the DCP.
Police added that they would formally arrest the accused after further questioning. The DCP said: “We are investigating as to who incited Ankit to carry out the act… his sister was in a live-in relationship with the accused. His family members blamed Pappu for her death and for alleged torture.”
A senior police officer said that Ankit bought a knife from a local shop. “Going by CCTV footage, the caretaker was sitting outside the toilet complex. On seeing the accused, he ran inside. The accused then chased and stabbed him… there was no person inside the toilet and we have no eyewitness yet,” the officer said.
