New Delhi: An argument over Rs 100 during a pilgrimage a fortnight ago cost a boy his life when five persons, including a minor boy, attacked him in north-west Delhi on his return, police said on Monday.

The incident took place in Jehangirpuri last night and five persons, including the minor and a woman, were apprehended. The victim has been identified as Mohit (17).

The accused have been identified as Suresh (45), his wife Munni (40), his sons Prashant (22), Raju (22) and the 16-year-old minor.

The incident leading to the murder took place on July 17 when the victim and the three sons of Suresh had gone to Hardwar for a pilgrimage.

"The three brothers had an argument with Hemant, the brother of Mohit, over Rs 100 while they were returning to Delhi. However, the matter was resolved then after other pilgrims intervened," Meenu Choudhary, Deputy Commissioner of Police (North-West), said.

However last night, Raju, Prasant and the minor along with their father and mother allegedly attacked the family of Hemant.

"During this, Mohit was stabbed and he succumbed to injuries. Mohit's mother and his sister are still admitted in a hospital," Choudhary said.
