An irreparable loss

Miraj was the son he never had and he doted on him.

“He was adopted from my other son who lives in Uttar Pradesh. Everything Siraj did was for this son. Now he is completely broken,” said Chotte Khan, the grandfather of the deceased.

Mohammed Siraj, the father of the victim, had never imagined that a game of throwing ball would leave him without his beloved son.

The families of both the boys usually fought over petty issues like who will use the bathroom first and cooking of non-vegetarian food and ended with the death of an innocent six year old. Relatives of the accused were the victim’s neighbours.

“Their relatives used to fight with us over everything. There is just one bathroom in the building and every day a fight would start over who would use it first. They would also get into fights with us over cooking of non-vegetarian food. Then one day they suddenly moved out and their relatives (the family of the accused) came to stay here,” said Saddam Hussein, the uncle of the deceased.

The family of the accused is originally from Rajasthan who came to stay at the Tuglakabad flat over a month ago.

Miraj’s family said initially they did not have any problems with the other family and both the families were very cordial.

“The fights had stopped and the family lived with their relatives inside the room and everything was fine until last night,” added Hussein.

The police said the mother of the accused minor was not present at the time of the incident.

But she soon came to know about it and was in a state of shock. “She did not even come to her son’s rescue when we were taking him away,” said a senior police officer.

When asked, the owner of the building said he does not know much about the family of the accused boy.

“I do not know whether they were verified. Only my husband can say if a tenant identification was done,” said the building owner’s wife.
