In a spine-chilling incident, a 16-year-old Hindu girl named Sakshi was brutally murdered by her alleged Muslim boyfriend Sahil in the Shahbad Dairy area of Delhi's Rohini on Sunday.
The preliminary post-mortem report of the minor girl revealed that her skull was crushed with a boulder after being stabbed 16 times by the accused Sahil. The detailed report is yet to be released.
The CCTV footage that captured the crime showed her being stabbed multiple times. The killer is also seen picking up a boulder lying nearby and battering her with it.
The girl had planned to attend a birthday party when Sahil stopped her in the middle of the road and stabbed her multiple times and he also ended up hitting her head with a stone.
The CCTV footage showed that several people were passing by on the street when the murder was taking place but none of them intervened to stop the attack.
Sakshi and Sahil were reportedly in a relationship and had an ugly fight a day before the murder. Delhi Police have registered an FIR in the case following a complaint by the victim’s father.
Twenty-year-old Sahil, an AC technician, was arrested from Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr today. The two had fought the previous evening, the police said.
Delhi Deputy Commissioner of Police Suman Nalwa said on Monday, “We have arrested the accused, Sahil from Bulandshahr, Uttar Pradesh. He used to work as a mechanic for AC and Refrigerators. Further investigation is underway, we will make sure that the maximum punishment is given to the accused.”
The inconsolable parents of Sakshi have demanded stringent action against 20-year-old Sahil. Speaking to ANI, the mother said, “Never saw Sahil. We demand justice for our daughter.”
Demanding the death penalty for the perpetrator, Sakshi’s father said “My daughter was stabbed many times, her intestines bulged out, her head was also broken into four pieces. We demand the strictest punishment for the accused.”
