He got on the plane for the first time, but accompanied by a group of Delhi Police men who had been hunting for him for the past three days.delhi Updated: Mar 13, 2011 00:39 IST
For the first time in his life, 25-year-old Ram Singh boarded an airplane but couldn’t fly away far enough to escape the police eyes. He got on the plane for the first time, but accompanied by a group of Delhi Police men who had been hunting for him for the past three days.
The whole of Delhi police was waiting for his two-hour flight to land so that they could lay their hands on the ‘most-wanted man’.
When he was finally caught on Friday night at 11pm, Vijay’s first reaction was to implore the police team not to rough him up.
“He said that he would tell us everything we want to know but asked us not to rough him up. He even told us that it was his first airplane trip,” said a senior police officer on the condition of anonymity.
The police said Vijay confessed to the crime in minute details. “He had no problems in talking to us. After he got over his initial shock of getting caught, he spoke to us quite freely. It was like he wanted to tell everyone what he did and had no qualms about it,” added the officer.
The police said Vijay was drawn towards Radhika the first time he saw her.
“He truly believes that he loved her and thought of himself as a silent admirer. He used to follow her everyday noticing everything she did. He hated the fact that she used to talk to her friends but not with him. He followed the bus she took every day to Ram Lal Anand College in an autorickshaw,” added the officer.
He said after Radhika snubbed his advances on March 5, he got really angry and decided to kill her.
“He said he was humiliated, beaten up twice and was not able to take all that. He then decided to shoot her,” added the officer.
During interrogation Vijay, told them that he came to Delhi in 2005. He worked as tailor at different places but mainly remained around Naraina Vihar.
Sometime in 2007, he saw the victim for the first time. After that he used to follow her routine every day and at times used to wait for her. Due to these objectionable activities, he was beaten twice. He was deeply hurt and left the area for Mumbai. He worked there for two-and-half years but his obsession brought him back to Delhi. “His obsession increased day-by-day and gave way to strong anger against the victim, as she never responded to his advances,” the officer added.
