An investigator on the case told news agency PTI, "We were also taken aback... the accused after the entire act holds the lifeless body by the hair and drags him back to the same narrow area. He robbed 350 from the victim and fled. We have already apprehended the accused, who had confessed and the weapon of murder has been recovered."

The accused was seen shouting at the people nearby to stay away, threatening them with his knife. The victim was stabbed in his face, neck, back, and beneath eyes more than 55 times, according to the Delhi Police.

The crime took place around 11.15pm on Tuesday. The victim was rushed to hospital but died on the way. The police said the suspect was arrested within an hour of the crime, and refused to reveal the name of both the parties.

It has been alleged that the 16-year-old was in an inebriated state when he committed the murder. Residents of Janta Mazdoor colony also saw him smoking a cigarette and waving his knife with blood-stained hands after murdering the boy.
