Burari murder: Police to take voice sample of accused
In a fresh development in the brutal murder of 21-year-old Karuna in North Delhi’s Burari area, the Delhi Police will take the voice sample of Surendra Singh (34) to make the case more strong.
Surendra, son of a retired Delhi Police Sub-Inspector, had allegedly stabbed Karuna 22 times on Tuesday, after learning that she was cheating on him. The whole act was recorded in a CCTV camera.
After brutally killing her in front of mute spectators, he first made a call to the person with whom Karuna was allegedly having an affair and then made a PCR call, informing that he had committed a murder.
Surendra, a resident of Rohini, was sent to four days’ police custody first. During interrogation, he made several revelations focusing on the motive behind the murder. On Sunday, he was remanded to two days’ judicial custody.
Speaking to Millennium Post, a senior police official close to the investigation, said: “We have requested the court to send him back after two days so that his voice samples could be taken. Those samples will be matched with the recorded message stored in the Police Control Room Unit, where Surendra had called confessing the crime.”
The officer added that nothing can be more concrete then the self-confession.
“We will use his initial confession (I have committed a murder) to the PCR as one of the prime evidences against him,” he said.
After making two calls, Surendra allegedly smashed his mobile phone.
Meanwhile, a team, interrogating Surendra for four days, said that it was satisfied with the probe and did not require his further police remand.
“Our team is now focusing on preparing the charge-sheet that has to be filed in a couple of days,” said an officer.
Millennium Post had earlier reported that the Delhi Police are likely to file the charge-sheet within 10 days and would request the judiciary to move the case in the fast track court.
