The Inside Story

TWO Indian teens have been accused of killing their grandmother and taking her money to gamble on cricket games.

The boys, aged 14 and 15, were among a gang of five held by police for the alleged murder of 65-year-old Linda Cajetan Andrade, who was found naked in her home last month.
The group are suspected of stealing 400,000 rupees ($7000) and some gold ornaments from her home in the south of the holiday state of Goa.
"These boys wanted money to bet on the Indian Premier League and the (soccer) Euro cup," police superintendent Arvind Gawas said, adding that the cash was used for betting but that it was unclear how much was gambled.
"After the murder and robbery they sold all the gold and distributed the money amongst themselves," he said.
"They betted during the IPL and continued during the Euro cup."
The five accused were picked up from different locations after one of them confessed to the crime, Supt Gawas said.
Along with the grandsons are three males aged 15, 19 and 21.
