Teacher’s family deny friendship
The family of Deepshikha Arora (24), a schoolteacher whose bloody body was discovered dumped in a WagonR car on Monday night, rubbished the police claim that she knew 26-year-old Varun Mehta.
Mehta committed suicide by jumping in front of a train at a railway station in Mathura, Uttar Pradesh. He had left behind a note claiming that he had killed Arora.
The woman’s family claimed that problems started only a week before the murder.
“Mehta started calling her and tried to speak to her wherever possible. He even threatened her mother and said that he wanted to marry her,” said Pawan Arora, the maternal uncle of the deceased woman.
The police said Arora and Mehta both completed their graduation from Maharaja Agrasen College.
“It was him who was troubling her and finally killed her. We lost our daughter for no reason,” added Pawan Arora.
The police said Arora, a commerce graduate, was a branch coordinator for the Indian Heritage School. Two hours after she left her Jhilmil Colony residence to go for a drive with Mehta in his Wagon R car, Arora's body was discovered dumped in the same vehicle parked inside the CB grounds complex adjacent to the Karkardooma Courts around 9:00 pm.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday Mehta’s family went to Mathura with a team of East Delhi Police and claimed the body. He had allegedly jumped in front of a train at the railway station in Mathura, Uttar Pradesh.
