Posted on Dec 15, 09:49PM | IANS

Angered by frequent taunts from his family, especially his son, for being unemployed, a 52-year-old man shot dead his teenaged son, police said Saturday.

The accused, Subhash Aggarwal, was arrested from his house in Sector 18 of north Delhi's Rohini area, where the incident took place late Friday night.

Aggarwal had five children, including the 18-year-old victim Shubham, who was studying engineering in a private college in Sonepat, Haryana.

According to police, the accused had been unemployed for the last one year. Before that, he had been a property dealer.

"Frequent arguments took place in the house as he (Aggarwal) was not earning," police said.

A heated argument ensued Friday night between the father-son duo. A fuming Aggarwal went to his son's room at around 1 a.m. and shot him in the abdomen with a double-barrel rifle.
