Monday, 14 October 2019 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

An 18-year-old youth was found murdered in a park in Dilshad garden area. His hands and legs were tied up and the body was dumped inside the Deer Park in Dilshad Garden on Sunday morning, police said. The man was identified as Sahil, a resident Kalander Colony, they said. Police later arrested the accused identified as one Arshad, a resident of Ghaziabad on the charges of murdering Sahil.

 A police patrolling team was informed about the incident by a passerby, following which they rushed to the spot and found the body, a police official said.  The body had deep cuts on head and neck, the official said.

 Sahil's family told police that he left his house on a scooter on Saturday at around 11.45 pm and did not return home since then, the official added. Police said the scooter was found outside the park.

The accused, Arshad (22), a resident of Shaheed Nagar in Ghaziabad, was known to Sahil and had borrowed Rs 50,000 from his family which he failed to return, a senior police official said.

 "A case of murder has been registered and Arshad has been arrested in connection with the killing," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Shahdara) Amit Sharma. During interrogation, the accused told police that he was not able to repay the money he had borrowed from Sahil's family as he incurred losses at his grocery store.

 Under the pressure of not being able to return the amount, he decided to kill Sahil. On Saturday night, the two went to the Deer Park where the accused killed him using a blade and a brick, the officer said. The blade used in commission of crime and the bloodstained clothes worn by him at the time of incident has been recovered, the police said.
