Infuriated over his minor sister eloping with a neighbour, a
25-year-old man shot dead the boy's parents early Wednesday,
Sharda Prasad Tiwari, 45, and wife Shobha Tiwari, 40, were killed
by Sonu, who lived opposite their Harsh Vihar residence in east
Delhi, around 6 a.m.
"The elder son of the dead couple had eloped with Sonu's minor
sister a few months back but returned after some days. An angered
Sonu sought revenge from the family," a police officer said.
"Tiwari's two sons and a daughter were also in the house and were
sleeping at the time of the incident," added the officer.
According to police, the young couple was not married and both
were living in their respective houses ever since they returned.
"Sonu and his family are absconding since morning and their house
is locked," the officer said.
