A 14-year-old boy from Aurangabad here on Wednesday killed his elder brother, who was born just an hour before him, over Rs 40.
The two brothers had a tussle for the same sum of money a day before the incident as well. The police said, that the younger brother has admitted of committing the crime.
The deceased, on returning home in the afternoon from school had fallen asleep.
Angry over their argument the previous day, the accused took a hammer and attacked him, the police added.
The younger brother was reportedly unhappy with the way he was treated at home and in school by his peers, something over which the brothers would quarrel with each other often.
The younger brother said he was often humiliated among his peers whereas his elder brother was very popular and was respected, according to police officials. After being upset over this, the two brothers argued over the money, which led to the elder brothers’ death.
The police have sent the elder brother’s body for post-mortem and said that a further probe is underway.
