“Detailed interrogation revealed that Subhash had met Sakshi, who happened to be his distant relative, at a wedding ceremony where they struck a friendship,” said DCP Jaiswal.
“Later, however, Sakshi started shunning him since she was more educated than him. This triggered the idea of seeking revenge in his mind.” Nabbed from Ghitoli village in UP’s Baghpat district last night, Subhash, a cousin of Sakshi’s sister-in-law, told the police that he had reached her house at Munirka near Vasant Vihar around 10am on Saturday where he shot Sakshi. She had written her class 12 exams this year.
A pistol believed to be used in the murder, blood-stained clothes and a mobile phone were recovered from Subhash’s possession, police said.
