Delhi Police Tuesday claimed to have solved the murder of a man whose headless body was found in outer Delhi’s Samaypur Badli on Monday morning and arrested three men for the crime.
The murder, investigators said, was an ‘honour’ killing.
The deceased, Javed, a 22-year-old, allegedly had an affair with of one of the arrested men’s sister. Police also learnt that Javed was having another affair with the wife of a man who is yet to be arrested.
Police said the arrested men are Ranjeet,18, Gulab Singh, 21 and Rahul, 20 -- all residents of Siraspur in Samaipur Badli.
On Monday, the police control room received information about a headless body in the fields near the Siras Pur metro station. Police registered a case and identified the body as that of Javed.
A local informed police that Javed could have been murdered by his neighbour. The two were last seen together on Sunday night.
Within hours of the tip-off, the police raided Ranjeet’s house in Siraspur and arrested him along with his friends Gulab Singh and Rahul on Monday night. The three led police to the spot where they had hidden Javed’s severed head. Their friend Darshay is yet to be arrested.
DCP Rohini, Rishi Pal, said the three men said Javed had an ‘illicit relationship’ with Ranjeet’s sister and another affair with Darshay’s wife.
The four had earlier warned him to sever ties with the women but Javed had reportedly refused after which they planned to eliminate him.
DCP Pal said that as per the plan, Ranjeet, who works in a carpet factory, called Javed for a drink on Sunday evening. The two drank heavily in the fields behind the Siraspur metro station while Darshay waited in the bushes with a meat cleaver.
“When Javed was heavily drunk, all the accused person overpowered him while Darshay came out with the cleaver and chopped Javed’s head in several attempts. After cutting Javed’s dead, they threw it in the paddy field to ensure that he was not identified,” said the officer.
