A 20-year-old man stabbed his mother’s ‘partner’ to death in outer Delhi’s Baba Haridas Nagar on Wednesday afternoon for allegedly harassing his minor sister, police said.

The man called the police from the crime spot itself and informed them that he had killed his “father”, said Anto Alphonse, deputy commissioner of police (Dwarka).

The murdered man was not the suspect’s father, the DCP said. “The victim had entered into a relationship with the suspect’s mother in 2012, a year after she lost her husband,” he said.

The couple lived separately. The woman lived with her two children from her dead husband: the 20-year-old son and a 15-year-old daughter.

The victim, a stall owner from Alipur in UP, would visit her at her home in Baba Haridas Nagar from time to time. Together, they have a seven-year-old son.

“For the past few days, the killer was suspecting the victim of harassing his minor sister. When he visited his home on Wednesday, he confronted the victim,” said an investigator.

The confrontation snowballed and the man picked up a knife and attacked him, the DCP said.

The suspect's mother was in the house when the crime happened,;his sister was out of Delhi.

“The killer threw the knife in an empty plot before pulling out his phone to call the police control room. He said he had killed his father and would wait for the police to arrive and arrest him,” said the DCP.

The man was arrested and the knife recovered. He has been booked for murder. “It is too early to comment on the allegations against the victim. We are yet to speak to the girl,” the DCP said.

Police said the young man ran a small shop near his house.
