Faridabad Murder case: Faridabad police reapplied for custody of the main accused in the murder case of a civil defence worker, that had led to nation-wide outrage. The 21-year-old woman had incurred multiple stab injuries due to the attack. A day after her death a man named Nizamuddin had surrendered to the police, alleging that he was the woman’s husband and took responsibility of her killing.
The accused had alleged the he got married to the woman in June this year. However, the alliance was not disclosed to their families. But when the police team went to Saket court in Faridabad to verify his claims, it was unable to verify the information as it didn’t have much details. The murder weapon in the case is yet to be recovered as well.
The police now seeks custody of the accused again. They had applied for the same on September 3, but the request didn’t come through. “He needs to be interrogated at length to ascertain the sequence of events that led to the crime, apart from other aspects of the case,” said a police officer associated with the case’s investigation.
What is the case?
On August 26, the 21-year-old civil defence worker went missing. She was allegedly picked up by the 25-year-old suspect from Lajpat Nagar area in Delhi. The suspect took the deceased woman to Palli Road where the two had an argument over the woman’s alleged involvement with a third person. The next day Nizamuddin walked into Kalindi Kunj police station to surrender, claiming that he had stabbed and killed the woman enraged over her alleged infidelity.
The woman had incurred as many as 15 stab wounds due to the attack. The post mortem report established cause of death as “shock and hemorrhage due to injury to vital organs.”
However, the woman’s family has rejected claims of marriage and relationship made by the accused, further alleging that the crime was executed by more than one person. The family also went on to accuse two of the women’s colleagues. They also alleged that the woman was gangraped and her body was mutilated.
The post mortem report of the woman has, however, ruled out sexual assault.
