The custody of Sahil, the accused in the brutal murder of a minor girl in Delhi’s Shahbad Dairy area, has been extended for an additional three days by the Rohini Court. Following the completion of two days of police custody, Sahil was presented at the judge’s residence on Thursday morning for security purposes. Metropolitan Magistrate (MM) Nidhi Chitkara granted the extension after considering the arguments put forth by the Delhi police.
On Monday, the parents of the deceased minor girl who was stabbed brutally in Delhi’s Shahbad Dairy area demanded the death penalty for the accused Sahil.
“We want the death penalty for him (Sahil). Life for life. The way my daughter is gone, he should also be gone,” the mother of the deceased.
The father of the 16-year-old girl said, “The way he brutally killed my daughter he should get the death penalty. I don’t want anything from anyone my only demand is that he (Sahil) should be punished,””I work as a labourer, and I have only two children, the first one was her and a small boy, I just want that he should be punished severely,” he added.
Earlier on Tuesday, Delhi’s Rohini Court had sent Sahil to two-day police custody.
Delhi Police had sought the remand of Sahil on the ground that the weapon used for the murder was not recovered yet and he was changing his versions continuously which needs to be verified.Sources stated that Sahil fled the city after the murder and switched off his phone. He reached Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh after changing two buses. Delhi Police arrested him on Monday from Bulandshahr.According to police sources, after committing the murder, Sahil dumped his weapon in Rithala before fleeing to Bulandshahr.
