Tailor's sticker on victim's trousers leads police to murderer

n what seems to be story of a Hollywood investigative thriller, the cops of North-east district have solved a blind murder case of an unidentified man reaching the murderer through a tailor's sticker on his trousers and a missed call on his mobile.

Knowing that the body was burnt to conceal the identification of the deceased, the cops got their first clue from the tailor's sticker of the deceased trouser.

It was January 30 when the cops received a call that a partially charred dead body of a man has been found at Yamuna Khadar near Khajuri Khas. Immediately, the cops reached the spot.

"We were clueless. The murderer burnt the body to hide the identification of the body. However, the pant the deceased was wearing ws not completely burnt and we managed to find a tailor's sticker. We knew that this is our first clue," said Ajit Kumar Singla, DCP North-east.

The investigation led the cops to the doorsteps of a tailor who ran a shop in New Ashok Nagar in Delhi. The tailor told the cops that he stitched the pant and the name of the person was Rajesh.

Soon, the mobile number of Rajesh was found in the payment receipt book of the tailor.

"We felt it was easy to track the deceased now but then the address given to take the SIM turned out to be fake forcing us to modify our investigation," the officer said.

The cops then got the call records of the deceased's phone and zeroed in on a number who called him up at night a day before the body was found.

The cops investigation revealed the man also visited New Ashok Nagar. The cops now knew that this was their man as his location was found in New Usmanpur as well.

The cops then picked up Sudhir, a resident of Khajuri Khas and he spilled the beans of the murder.

Police sources say that Sudhir accidently gave a missed call to the deceased's wife and his wife called back.

The two then developed friendship. When Rajesh got to know about this, he started to object. It was then that a conspiracy was hatched to eliminate Rajesh and the accused Sudhir gave a call to Rajesh to resolve the issue. The accused along with his associates then got Rajesh drunk and took him to Khajuri Khas, slit his throat and burnt his body to hide his identification.

A missed call that was accidently made led to a murder in the end.

"We have arrested Sudhir and his associate Samir. Sudhir also has some previous cases against him," said Singla.
