In a shocking incident, a man allegedly killed his 3-year-old stepson by bashing him to the floor on Saturday. Police said that Muhammad Sikander (29), a resident of Janakpuri, had killed Mohammad Sanual (3) on Friday after allegedly being enraged over the toddler urinating on a quilt he had been weaving.
The incident came to light on Saturday after the three-year-old's mother, Savia Khatun, registered an FIR with police at the division number 6 police station.
