Accused were aware of Anjali under car: Police


In a significant revelation in Kanjhawala case, in which a woman died after being dragged for several kilometres by a car, Delhi Police sources said that the accused were aware of Anjali being trapped under their car within minutes after her scooty was hit by them. 

“The accused in the car did not take Anjali out because the accused were afraid that if they got down from the car and took Anjali out, they might get into legal trouble if someone saw them,” said the Delhi Police sources. 

The accused told about their dilemma during their interrogation with the Delhi Police, however, the police say that there is a contradiction in their statements, so every angle is being investigated closely. 

Ankush is the seventh accused arrested in the case. Delhi Police have alleged that he is the person who conspired with the other accused after the incident he helped the other accused flee. 

Meanwhile, Rohini Court in the national capital on Monday granted 14 days of judicial custody of all the six accused in the Kanjhawala death case. Delhi Police had on Monday sought the judicial custody of all accused in the Kanjawala Death case. The court asked Delhi police to file a reply on the bail application of Ashutosh on Wednesday. 

A total of 18 teams of Delhi Police are investigating the case. During the interrogation, it was found that the car was driven by Amit Khanna and not by Deepak. “We are trying to file the charge sheet as early as possible. During the post-mortem, no evidence of sexual assault was found,” the Special CP said. 

According to the police, the statement of eyewitness Nidhi, Anjali’s friend, has been recorded and no link has been found between the eyewitness and the accused.
