A local court on Tuesday sent Mukesh Kumar Shah — accused of killing 23-year-old trainee software engineer Cincy Sebastian on January 11 — to 14-day judicial custody.
The city police could not get more information from Shah during the 4-day remand. The police have recovered a laptop and earrings from him.
According to the police, the accused confessed to the crime and alleged that he killed Cincy as she did not reciprocate his love. However, the police suspect the involvement of some more persons in the case. Shah was arrested from Udyog Vihar on Friday.
Cincy had joined HIPL, a software firm in Udyog Vihar on November 2010, where Shah was already employed as a cab driver for the past six years. He used to pick and drop the victim.
Maheshwar Dayal DCP (crime) said the police zeroed in on the accused on the basis of a scarf recovered from the crime scene at Cincy's PG accommodation. The scarf was wrapped around the knife used by the accused. Police officials said Shah had proposed to Cincy a couple of times before, but she asked him to stay away.
