Cops release sketch of Geeta Colony murder suspects
New Delhi: The Delhi Police has released the sketch of three suspects who allegedly stabbed a man to death under Geeta Colony Flyover on December 10. Thirty-five-year-old Sushil Chauhan was stabbed on his thigh by one of these assailants in an incident of road rage. The incident took place late on Monday night when these men rammed their scooter into Chauhan's car.
"The age of these three men is reportedly between 25 and 30 years. According to the information, these three men were on a Scooty and a bike which was of red colour.We have appealed to the public to identify these accused and if they have any information they should share it with us. We could be contacted at 7065036025," said a senior police officer.
Of the three men, two are said to have light beards and one was clean shaven, the sketches have been made with the help of eyewitnesses including Sushil's friends who were present at the spot when the murder took place," said a senior police officer.
The friends of the deceased who are also an eyewitness in the case has earlier told the police that they have also seen a country made a pistol in the hands of the accused. They have also told the police that Sushil before collapsing has told them that he has been shot at.
This earlier version led the cops to believe that he was shot using a gun. The PM report, however, cleared the air that there was no gunshot injury and in fact, Sushil died of excessive bleeding by a stab injury.
"We have formed several teams to identify the accused, two of them have cut marks on their face. We appeal to the public to contact us if they know or have seen any of these suspects. The identity of the person would be kept confidential," said Meghna Yadav, DCP Shahdara.
"The way the deceased was injured using a knife suggests that the accused have a criminal background as no normal person carries a knife in the pocket. The victim later succumbed to his injuries," said a police officer.
