The accused went to the victim's house around 10 am to help her with her homework while her mother and brother went to their neighbor's apartment, police said. Kiran Goyal, Deputy Commissioner of Police (West), said that the accused had confessed to the crime, saying that he killed the girl after she was caught stealing.

“To escape from the apartment, he used a cloth to strangle the girl and before he could dispose of the body and flee the scene, the girl's mother arrived and nabbed him,” Goyal said. said

The DCP said that the police received a call at the control room around 10.45 am and a team from Dhankot and Rajinder Park police stations reached the spot.

“The victim's mother and neighbors caught hold of the youth. The mother told the police that when she returned home with her son from her neighbor's apartment, the iron grill door was closed and the wooden door was open,” DCP said.

“The mother saw a boy who lived in the same society and often visited her house. The boy did not open the gate and with the help of the neighbors broke the door of the temple room and entered the apartment. The mother saw fire coming out of the room. “D CP said.

A case is being registered at Rajinder Park police station and the post-mortem will be conducted on Tuesday, police said.

The accused will be produced before the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) in an hour, police said.
