According to the victim’s mother Seema, Yogesh was lynched by his Muslim friends who had also demanded a ransom of Rs. 10000 while they kept the boy hostage. Seema works as a domestic help and the family lives in Meet Nagar, Shahdara. In spite of being very young, Yogesh used to work to help his family financially for expenses of his mother’s treatment.
Mail Today quotes Seema saying,
On June 23, Yogesh left home after he got a call from his friend Arif. He, along with other friends, including a girl Fatima, first kidnapped my son, later demanding Rs 10,000 from me. I was told that if money was not given on time, they will kill my son. The very next morning, I was told that my son was killed and thrown somewhere along the railway track near New Delhi station.
