3 held for killing petrol pump employee
Three people have been arrested by the Adarsh Nagar police staff for killing a petrol pump employee when he resisted their robbery attempt.
Aslam Khan, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Northwest) said, "The arrested accused are Nikhil Saxena (19), Vishal Sonkar (23) and Puneet (24) killed Naresh while he was heading home."
Within 36 hours, police claimed to have solved the murder case. Police said the accused, all residents of Adarsh Nagar, were arrested on Sunday.
Police said they were informed about the murder of Naresh by a motorist. Naresh was found lying in a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds around 1.30 a.m. near the Bharat Petroleum petrol pump.
The DCP said, "It seemed a blind murder case since no eyewitness was found. Five teams were formed to crack the case. Along with the help of local intelligence and CCTV footage, the police arrested the suspects."
"The accused, who are jobless, told police during questioning that they accosted the victim and tried to snatch his wallet at knifepoint but he resisted, following which Nikhil and Vishal held him from behind while Puneet stabbed him multiple times," said Khan.
The murder weapon and a two-wheeler used in the crime were seized.
