Three persons, including two brothers, were arrested in south-west
Delhi on Monday for allegedly murdering a 20-year-old fruit seller at
the behest of a contractor who was against the victim's relationship
with his daughter. So far police have failed to recover the weapon
used in the suspected honour killing.
Upender alias Maski, who hailed from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh, was
found dead with his throat slashed allegedly by his friends at their
rented accommodation in Shivani Enclave in Kakraula village of Dwarka
Sector 16B on January 13. Upender and his friends were sleeping
together and he was found dead the next morning by one of them.
"The deceased and his four friends were living in one of the rooms of
the contractor, who lives with his family on the same premises.
Upender started getting friendly with his daughter which was not liked
by the contractor and he hatched a plan to eliminate Upender," said
Sharad Aggarwal, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South-West).
Arrested persons have been identified as Vinod Kumar (25), Sonu (23)
and Mahesh (22). Kumar, who works as a helper in a local shop and
Sonu, a driver, are brothers while Mahesh also is a driver.
According to police, Vinod and Sonu hail from Siwan district in Bihar
whereas Mahesh is a native of Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh.
"The contractor arranged a party and offered drinks and food to
Upender and his friends. On the evening of January 12, they had drinks
and food together. At that time the contractor was also present in
their room and they were watching cricket match. The deceased was not
used to watching cricket but on the said day he was watching cricket.
Once everybody had gone to sleep, the contractor with the help of
other accused persons slit Upender's throat using some sharp-edged
weapon," said DCP Aggarwal.
The contractor had promised the co-accused good money in helping him
to kill Upender. The police said the three accused confessed to their
crime and admitted that they were known to the contractor, who has
been arrested from Dwarka and identified as Ayub, 45.
