Murder, burglary at Christian school: Police still clueless
Despite having questioned more than 100 people and detained as many as 10, the police are still clueless in the investigation of the double murder and burglary case at a Christian school in north Delhi’s Civil Lines area.
“Till now we have questioned more than 100 people, including proclaimed bad characters and ruffians in the entire north district and, based on the input provided by them, 10 people were detained till Thursday evening,” said Madhur Verma, Deputy Commissioner of Police (North), on Thursday.
He further said the investigation into this case was emphasising on modus operandi of several gangs and some habitual offenders recently released from prison have so far provided vital clues in this regard. According to a police source, alleged robbery gangs of Bangladesh migrants have been active in the area. However, they often shoot their victims, unlike the concerned case in which the two brothers, working as security guards in a school, were beaten to death with iron rods, their limbs tied up with wires and then their faces allegedly smashed with a stone. But the police have not yet ruled out the possibilities of the involvement of any such gangs or a personal rivalry angle, with the burglary angle possibly being orchestrated, the source added. On the intervening night between Tuesday and Wednesday, two security guards, working at the United Christian Senior Secondary School,were allegedly killed.
Preliminary investigation revealed that their limbs were tied with the wire of a portable fan and they died ofhead injuries caused by an iron rod found at the spot. The deceased were identified as Sunil Kumar (40) and Anil Kumar (25), who were brothers, and had been working at the school for the past few years.
