3 arrested for killing man in Delhi

New Delhi: Three people have been arrested for allegedly killing a 22-year-old man as he was in an illicit relationship with the wife of their absconding accomplice, the police said today.

The headless body of Javed was found in a field in Samaypur Badli yesterday, they said.

Subsequently, three men, Ranjeet (18), Gulab Singh (21) and Rahul (20), all residents of Rana Park in Siraspur, were arrested, the police said

They led the police to the place where they had hidden Javed’s head. The deceased’s mobile phone was also recovered from them, they said.

During interrogation, they said Javed was in a relationship with Ranjeet’s sister and also with the wife of one of the accused Munmun, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Rohini) Rishi Pal said.

Javed was warned by the accused, but when he did not pay heed to them, a plan was hatched to kill him, the officer said.

On Sunday evening, Ranjeet called Javed on the pretext of drinking liquor. When the latter got drunk, Munmun, who was hiding in nearby fields, came out and severed his head with a meat cleaver, the DCP said.

Ranjeet had even visited Javed’s family to express his sympathies, the officer said, adding Munmun is absconding.
