A 17-year-old boy in La Gi Town, Binh Thuan Province, south-central Vietnam has been arrested for attempting to kill his parents with pesticide after they banned him from having a relationship with a girl.
The La Gi People’s Procuracy on Wednesday said it had approved a decision to keep T.A.K. in custody.
T.A.K. and P.T.T.T., both 17-year-old residents of La Gi Town, are in a relationship which took a rough turn when K. took T. to his house and his parents began insulting the couple.
The couple then made plans to kill the boy’s parents.
On Thursdsay last week, K. and T. picked up a bottle of pesticide and poured it into an empty water bottle. K. then brought the bottle home.
At about 6:00 pm that day, K. poured the pesticide into a soup pot on the table while his mother was cooking.
The mother smelt the pesticide and reported the case to local police.
K. and his girlfriend admitted that they had poured the pesticide into the soup in order to kill K.’s parents.
Local police have seized the soup pot, the pesticide bottle, and the water bottle containing the pesticide.
