Accused was planning  to flee to Nepal to evade arrest: Police
He was arrested from Mathura at the nick of time, police said on Monday. He first had plans to move to Gorakhpur, stay there for a while and then flee to Nepal, police added.

The accused, identified as Shiv Kumar Yadav (32), had married his own widowed sister-in-law and had told her and his stepson to be ready with the baggage.

“He had purchased a new mobile phone and SIM card in Mathura and was in touch with his family members through that. He told them that he had an altercation with someone and they were trying to implicate him in a false case so they should leave their rented accommodation in Chandrapuri locality of Mathura as soon as possible,” said a police official.

However, the police have not yet recovered the mobile phone in which he had saved the victim’s phone number and intimidated her. He might be taken to Mathura again, to find the phone used in the crime, said a source in police.

The cop also said that during his three days in police custody, investigators will try to determine whether he victimised other female passengers in the past too.

In fact, he did mention one particular case that happened in 2009. However, the source refused to disclose further as the facts had to be verified first.

Senior police officials also said that they are now going to run a check with all the radio taxi services in the national Capital whether they follow proper guidelines in plying their taxi services in Delhi like a mandatory GPS tracker and drivers who have police verifications.
