New Delhi, Feb 2 (IANS) The police on Tuesday arrested three men, including two hired killers, in connection with the murder of an 18-year-old youth whose body was found here on Monday.
Mohammad Anas Qureshi was found dead at Kamla Nehru Ridge in the northern part of the city with multiple stab injuries and strangulation marks, Deputy Commissioner of Police Madhur Verma said.
He said technical surveillance helped the police to nab Anas’s uncle Mohammad Shahnawaz and his two associates Shahbaz and Sonu — both of whom had been offered money for committing the murder.
“The three accused were arrested from different locations in Delhi on Tuesday. They killed Anas on Sunday night after administering him sleeping pills in coffee,” Verma said.
The police were now looking for Anas’s stepmother Rubina who was believed to have planned the murder with Shahnawaz.
Ownership of property was believed to be the motive behind the killing, the police officer said.
