Sanskrit professor murdered by younger brother after argument

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A 28-year-old Sanskrit professor was brutally killed by his younger brother in north Delhi's Burari area after a heated argument, police said today.

Hitesh Verma was allegedly bludgeoned to death by his younger brother, Himanshu (23), on the intervening night of November 27 and 28 at their rented accommodation, said a senior police officer.



Hitesh used to work as a Sanskrit professor at PDDAV college while the accused is pursuing post-graduation in the subject from Shivaji College, he said.

Police received a call about a body lying in a drain around 3 AM. On interrogation, it was found he had been murdered and the deceased was identified.

"When the deceased was identified, police team spoke to his brother who cooked up a story. He told police two men had barged inside their house and murdered his brother," said the officer.

However, there were loopholes in the story. Police said there was just one entrance of the house on the ground floor, where the landlord lived. However, the landlord told police that nobody had entered the house.

The door of the room where the brothers lived was locked and there were no signs of a forced entry, he said.

When police questioned Himanshu about why he didn't do anything to save his brother or why he wasn't harmed by the two attackers, he broke down and confessed his crime, said the officer.

He also disclosed he had hidden the murder weapon under his bed, which was recovered by them.

Himanshu told police his brother was a control freak and always forced him to do things that he didn't want to.

"Himanshu said Hitesh used to get his friends home and often asked him to go out. Hitesh was in a relationship with a girl and when he would get his girlfriend home, he would ask Hitesh to step out. Of late, he would often ask his younger brother to go out," he said.

Yesterday, Hitesh asked Himanshu to go out since he was expecting her but they allegedly got into a fight as Himanshu refused go out as it was cold. The younger brother lost his temper and killed his brother with a dumbbell, said the officer.

The brothers' parents stay in Jhansi. The brothers used to visit their parents every two months. The parents have been informed and they will be reaching soon, following which the post-mortem will be conducted, he added.
