However, there were loopholes in the story.Police said there was just one entrance of the house on the ground floor, where the landlord lived. However, the landlord told police that nobody had entered the house.

When police questioned Himanshu about why he didn’t do anything to save his brother or why he wasn’t harmed by the two attackers, he broke down and confessed his crime, said the officer.

“Himanshu said Hitesh used to get his friends home and often asked him to go out. Hitesh was in a relationship with a girl and when he would get his girlfriend home, he would ask Himanshu to step out. Of late, he would often ask his younger brother to go out,” the police officer told NDTV.

Yesterday, Hitesh asked Himanshu to go out as he was expecting his girlfriend to come over, but they allegedly got into a fight as Himanshu refused leave as it was cold outside. The younger brother lost his temper and killed Hitesh with a dumbbell, said the officer.
