On Tuesday, a 26-year-old man named Safar confessed to the police of abducting and killing a 17- year-old female student. Later, the girl’s body was found in a tea plantation in Tamil Nadu. The stalker used to harass the girl and he had also morphed some of her pictures. The girl had told her father that she was scared that the stalker would kill her.
The Details Of The Case
On Tuesday evening, a 17-year-old girl, a class 12 student and a native of Kaloor in Kochi was found missing. Her father, who went to pick her up from school realised this and soon filed a complaint at the Central Police Station in Ernakulam, Kerela.
However, later that night the family was informed that the girl’s body was found near a forest area in Valparai, Tamil Nadu. After the abduction, Safar reportedly drove away from Kochi with the girl in a car. He had stolen it from a car service outlet he was working in.

During the investigation, the central police station found that the car had crossed Athirapally in Thrissur and there were a man and a woman in it. Within, a few hours the Tamil Nadu police stopped the car coming back at the Valparai check post and they saw that only Safar was inside the car.
When they questioned the man, he broke down and confessed his crime. The Sub-Inspector of Valparai police station told News 24, “We had received information that this specific numbered car was coming through the area. The car was spotted at the check post by around 8.45 pm. We only saw one man in it, although the other front seat was folded. We also spotted bloodstains while examining the car. On questioning, the man said he was from Ernakulam and that he came here with his girlfriend. But he also told us that he killed and disposed of her body on the way.”
The Tamil Nadu police on hearing upon this informed the Kochi Police. A team of TN police went into the plantation near the Valparai check post and discovered the body of the girl. She was still in her school uniform. Confirming this with TNM, the officials of Central police station said that a team of officers from Kochi has reached Valparai for further proceedings in the case.
“My daughter was very upset when he morphed her photos. She was scared he would kill her. I used to drop her and pick her up from school every day because of him.”
According to the police, Safar claimed, “He had been harboring vengeance for long. Around 2 pm on Tuesday, he stole the car from the showroom he was working at. He had taken a knife also with him,” News 24 reported.

According to the victim’s father, Safar used to stalk and threaten her, because of which, the father used to accompany her to school. “He came to tell me that he wanted to marry her and we said no. She had told me that this man was harassing her and even raised death threats. My daughter was very upset when he morphed her photos. She was scared he would kill her. I used to drop her and pick her up from school every day because of him. On Tuesday, I dropped her at school. But when I went to pick her up, I could not find her,” he said. He added, “She was very brave.”
