Two held for girl’s murder in Delhi

New Delhi, Sep 14 (IANS) Two people were arrested on Monday for allegedly murdering a teenaged girl in Delhi’s Bindapur area on Saturday.

According to police, the accused identified as Mukesh Kumar Rathore (32) and Mohit Kaushik (26) shot dead 19-year-old Hemlata alias Dolly, at her residence in southwest Delhi’s Bindapur area, near Uttam Nagar.

“Both the accused are residents of Uttam Nagar.”

Police said Rathore was teaching car driving to the girl for three days during which he came to know that her family had received a big sum of money from the sale of a property. Since he badly needed to pay back a debt, he and his accomplice Mohit Kaushik carried out the crime.

“During investigation, the accused (Rathore) ….claimed that he tried to save the girl by taking her to hospital… Later, he broke down and admitted to have committed the crime along with an accomplice, Kaushik,” Deputy Commissioner of Police R.A. Sanjeev said.

“Rathore was also a member of many local financial groups – commonly known as monthly committees – for which he was to deposit money,” Sanjeev said.

“To earn quick money, he planned to commit robberies and included Mohit Kaushik with him,” he added.

“Dolly’s family had hired Rathore for teaching her driving. During a training session he came to know that the family has received huge sum of money from sale of property and that is kept at their house,” the official said.

On Saturday morning, Rathore called Dolly on the pretext of a driving session and shot her in the head from a close range, leaving her dead on the spot. “They robbed her of mobile and purse,” the official added.
