NEW DELHI: The four accused men, who had brutally beaten up a 23-year-old man in Naraina accusing him of theft, were suppliers of iron rods and construction material. They used rods from their own stock for the crime.
As per the autopsy report of the victim, Rahul, he had multiple marks of iron rods all over his body. The blows with the iron rods resulted in internal bleeding and multiple fractures, which led to his death.
Rahul’s wife said that he had left home on Thursday after an argument, promising to return only after getting a decent job. They were fed up with “frequent harassment by the cops.” Rahul was arrested eight times earlier on charges of theft and would be detained every time a burglary took place in the area, she claimed.
“He said he would return only after getting a decent job. He didn’t come home that day. Since he was recently released from the jail on August 17, I thought the cops must have picked him up for some theft. When I reached the police station on Friday, the officers there informed me that he was murdered by four men,” added Pooja.
Rahul was tied to a tree and thrashed to death by four men after they suspected him of stealing their mobile phone. The accused identified as Istihar (30), Mustaq Ahmed (32), Shiraj (28) and Anish (24) worked as truck drivers and supplied iron rods and construction material to different parts in Delhi-NCR.
An officer privy to the investigation said: “It was Rahul’s associate who fled with the mobile phone but the accused caught hold of him and thrashed him. When he fell unconscious, they left him in the park and fled. The four have no previous involvement. We are trying to trace Rahul’s associate.”
