Delhi Shahbad Dairy murder: What we know so far
“We have arrested the accused – Sahil – from Bulandshahr (in) Uttar Pradesh. He used to work as a mechanic for AC and refrigerators. Further investigation is underway… we will make sure the maximum punishment is given to the accused,” Deputy Commissioner of Police Suman Nalwa told news agency ANI.
Ravi Kumar Singh, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer North) told reporters the accused, Sahil, ‘lived under Shahbad Dairy police station area’.
Authorities said the girl had planned to attend a friend’s son’s birthday party when the accused intercepted and stabbed her multiple times in a horrific attack that also involved bludgeoning her with a stone.
The accused was arrested after he made a phone call to his father, ANI said.
Police sources told ANI Sahil fled to a relative’s home in Bulandshahr after the killing but made the mistake of calling his father. That allowed the cops to track down his location through technical surveillance and arrest him, sources said.
The horrific attack was caught on CCTV and footage has been shared online. The video – which Hindustan Times has seen and chosen not to publish – shows the young girl pinned to a wall and stabbed several times by a young male. The murder takes place in view of people passing within inches of the attacker.
No one stops or says anything as the young girl’s body crumples to the road and the attacker continues his assault, which lasts for nearly 90 seconds and includes him kicking her body.
At the end of the stabbing, kicking and bludgeoning the young male walks away.
