In a horrific incident, a teenager killed his minor cousin over the trivial issue of playing games on a cell phone. The incident took place at Goblej village of Kheda district in central Gujarat.

Kheda Police Sub Inspector S.R. Prajapati said that two days ago, 16-year-old Jagrut (name changed) hit his 12-year-old cousin Vijesh on his head with a stone, after which he fell unconscious. Jagrut thought Vijesh died and fearing scolding from parents, he tied his legs and hands and threw him in the well. He then fled to his village Damsath in Banswara district in Rajasthan.

The boy was brought back by the family and was arrested on Thursday afternoon before the Juvenile Board, said the cop.

According to Jagrut's statement, he and his cousin Vijesh were playing games on his mobile phone. They both decided to have golgappa but Vijesh was insisting for the mobile phone for games. This angered Jagrut and he struck Vijesh with a stone.

The accused took the family members to the well in which he had thrown his cousin. Vijesh's father Jitmal Valhi identified him by seeing his legs in the well and informed Kheda Town Police, which called the fire brigade and retrieved the deceased's body and sent it for postmortem.

Jitmal Valhi and his brother (Jagrut's father) are from Rajasthan. They moved to Goblej village with their families and were working as labourers. As the two children went missing, the families searched for them and when they learned that Jagrut had reached their native village, they brought him back. Upon return, he confessed to his crime before his family members, said the complainant Jitmal.
