Delhi: Meet via gay dating app proves fatal | Delhi News


NEW DELHI: Sunny Dayal (25) was all excited to finally meet the 20-year-old youth he had been chatting with on a gay dating app. However, their plan of a romantic rendezvous in jungles of Aali Vihar in southeast Delhi turned out to be a deathtrap.
Dayal was robbed and murdered by the youth and his associate and his body dumped in the jungles. Police, however, managed to track down the killers using technical surveillance.
They have been identified as Sumit Dabba (20) and Kartik (24), DCP (southeast) RP Meena said. They have criminal antecedents and used to target people after contacting them through dating apps.
Dayal worked for an automobile company and used an app named Glued to meet people online. Last week, he came in touch with Dabba and they hit it off instantly. After a few days of flirtatious conversations, they decided to meet up and get to know each other.
The murder was discovered on the evening of September 5. The body had several stab injuries. A team led by inspector Aishvir Singh was formed to crack the case.
The cops found that Dayal’s mobile was missing and had been switched off. The last location of the phone was found around Gautampuri area near Badarpur. The cops further found that the deceased was in touch with a number ending with 8774, which was registered in the name of Pankaj, a resident of Gautampuri. However, it was found that a man named Arjun from the area was the actual user of the number. The cops scanned the WhatsApp DP of the number 8774 to arrive at this conclusion.
However, Arjun told the cops during questioning that his mobile was being used by Dabba through Saturday evening. Dabba was detained and cross-examined during which he gave conflicting statements. He eventually broke down and confessed to the murder and revealed that he had given his friend Arjun’s number to Dayal as he knew that Arjun’s number was registered in somebody else’s name.
After fixing a date with Dayal, Dabba took him for a bike ride in the jungles and stopped at an isolated location where his friend Kartik was already present. When Dayal resisted their robbery bid, they stabbed him with a knife and fled.
The cops later arrested Kartik and recovered Dayal’s mobile stolen by them. The scooter used in crime was also seized. Kartik is involved in four cases of assault, attempted murder and other offences.
