Caretaker of rehab centre among two arrested for beating inmate to death
New Delhi: Two persons, including the caretaker of a drug de-addiction centre, were arrested from Ghaziabad and Delhi's trans-Yamuna area on Wednesday for beating an inmate at the centre to death in Tughlakabad Extension.
Police officials claimed that before killing the victim Amit Bidhuri, the two accused men shaved off his eyebrows and hair with a hair trimmer and brutally thrashed him to death with a rod.
Cops said that the accused were identified as 30-year-old Sumit Arora, the caretaker, and his associate Sukhwinder.
Revealing the sequence of events, cops said that on Monday night, Arora saw the victim lying on the ground in a drunken stupor and giving off a stench.
On examining him, Arora found that Bidhuri had defecated on the floor, which enraged Arora.
The caretaker then shaved off Bidhuri's hair and eyebrows and, along with Sukhwinder, started beating Bidhuri with a wooden rod.
After beating the victim, Arora went to sleep on the nearby bed.
On Tuesday morning, the accused woke up and found that victim had died and, in panic, the two fled the spot.
Later, a police team on Wednesday nabbed Arora from Rampuri in Ghaziabad district of Uttar Pradesh, while Sukhwinder was arrested from the trans-Yamuna area.
Another associate Manoj Sharma reportedly still on the run.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (South East) Chinmoy Biswal said that the accused Arora was a sadist and to satisfy his psychotic rage, he along with his associates Sukhwinder and Manoj mercilessly thrashed the deceased.
