Guna (Madhya Pradesh): A 15-year-old boy killed his father, in Guna district over fears that he would fail the Class 10 exam and his father would thrash him for failing the exam, the police said. After the murder, the boy tried to frame a neighbour who was not on good terms with his family, the police added.

Dulichand Ahirwar was axed to death on April 3, while he was sleeping in a room, police officer Rajiv Mishra said, adding his son in a complaint said he saw their neighbour, Virendra Ahirwar, and another person fleeing the spot.
