One held for stabbing person to death in Nilothi
A 27-year-old man has been arrested for stabbing a person to death in outer Delhi's Nilothi area on Sunday.
The accused, identified as Avdes, had killed Mahender after they picked a fight over the disposal of garbage.
He was arrested from his native village in Bihar where he was hiding since the murder.
The police also claimed to have recovered a purse containing the photograph of the deceased, an Aadhar card and an election card from the possession of the accused.
The murder took place on July 11. The police received a PCR call informing that the body of a man was found lying near a crematorium in Nilothi village.
When the body was taken to Sanjay Gandhi Hospital, the doctors told the police that the accused had died of hemorrhagic shock due to injuries to his neck.
The police questioned several slum dwellers who lived with Mahender. His brother-in-law told them that he had consumed liquor inside Avdesh's house. The police went to the slum but he was missing. They later traced him in his village.
"The accused had consumed liquor and they started arguing over disposal of garbage. Another person, Krishan who was also at the spot started fighting with Mahender and later they slit his throat and dumped his body near the bushes," said a senior police official. The police are now on the look-out for Krishan.
