13-yr-old siphons off Rs 12L from dad’s locker to play online game with friends
A businessman in city filed a police complaint against his 13-year-old son’s friends and a private firm employee, alleging that they made his son play an online game and wasted a whopping Rs 12 lakh last year. However, the police have not been able to make much progress, as the accused teenagers said their friend gave them only a small amount of money every time.
The complaint was filed by R Ram Vilas, an interior designer, who said the money was siphoned off from the locker over the last year. According to the complainant, his son, a Class 8 student of a private school, took money from the locker in small portions after being asked by his friends to play Free Fire, an online game, together. The boy and three other friends had reportedly given the money to an employee of an electronic gadget showroom to play the game.
When he checked the locker recently, Ram Vilas was shocked to find the cash missing and questioned his son based on suspicion. The teenager claimed that the money was spent playing the game with his friends, following which Ram Vilas lodged a complaint at Nolambur police station against his son’s friends – all 13-year-olds – and the private firm employee.
However, as the teenagers told the police that they only received Rs 500 from Ram Vilas’s son every time, officials are confused as to how to take the inquiry forward, sources said.
