New Delhi: The Delhi police has arrested a 35-year-old man who allegedly stabbed his mother in southwest Delhi’s Vasant Vihar after she forced him to take his medicines.

The accused is mentally challenged and is currently undergoing treatment, said the police. He hails from Meghalaya.

 

According to the police, the incident took place on May 31 when the victim (56) was at home with her son and a daughter.

“The matter was reported to the police by the victim’s daughter, who said her brother’s treatment was going on at the Ram Manohar Lohia (RML) hospital. The doctor had prescribed him several medicines. As he had not been taking his medicines for the last 24 hours, his mother forced him to take the pills. This enraged him,” a senior police officer said.

The accused then picked up a knife in anger and allegedly told his mother that she trusted the doctor more than god.

“He stabbed his mother thrice, after which she raised an alarm for help. His sister, along with another relative, rescued her after intercepting the accused. She was taken to AIIMS, where she is recuperating,” said the police.

 

The police rushed to the spot after receiving the PCR call. “The accused was taken into custody. An FIR was registered under IPC Section 307 (attempt to murder) at Vasant Vihar police station,” said a senior police officer.

The accused was produced before a Delhi court, from where he was referred to the Institute of Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences for medical treatment,” he added.
