Shahbad Dairy murder accused’s police custody extended by 3 days

Friday, 02 June 2023 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

A city court on Thursday extended the custodial interrogation of the accused Sahil in the Shahbad Dairy murder case for three days.

Sahil was brought before the Rohini court after the expiration of his previous custodial remand.

The police informed the court that further interrogation of Sahil was necessary. They stated that they needed his remand to recover the knife used in the crime and his mobile phone. After considering the police’s argument, the court granted their request.


Deputy commissioner of police (DCP) (outer north) Ravi Kumar Singh said the investigator produced Sahil before a duty metropolitan magistrate’s residence on Thursday morning with a request to extend his police remand for three more days for his further interrogation.

“Due to security reasons, Sahil was produced in the early court, instead of the regular court. Considering our request, the court extended his police custody till Saturday,” said the DCP.  Singh said that Sahil has so far given many contradictory statements about the incidents and weapons used in the commission of crime, to mislead the police investigation.

“We have searched all the spots from Shahbad Dairy to Rithala metro station, where the accused had claimed to throw the knife.

“But, the weapon has not yet been recovered. We may take him to his aunt’s place in Bulandshahr– from where he was arrested, to trace the entire route.

“Since the weapon of offence will be vital evidence for the prosecution, we are mainly focusing on its recovery right now,” the DCP added.

According to Delhi police, Sahil stabbed the minor girl at least 16 times, kicked her limp body, and battered her relentlessly with a stone slab in a brutal attack in a narrow lane in northwest Delhi’s Shahbad Dairy on Sunday.

He then fled to his aunt’s house in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr and was arrested from that city on Monday after police traced a call he made to his mother. As a call was traced from his aunt to his father, Sahil was arrested and brought to Delhi on Monday.

The FIR registered by the police in connection with the brutal murder of 16-year-old Sakshi by her boyfriend Mohammad Sahil Khan to death in Delhi’s Shahbad Dairy area, reveals that her father was aware about their affair.

Based on the FIR obtained by IANS, it was revealed that his daughter had been friends with Sahil for the past year. Janak Raj (35), mentioned in the FIR, said, “She would often talk about him, and we would advise her that it’s not appropriate at her age. However, she would always take offence and go to her friend Neetu’s house.”
