Ten days after a 21-year-old civil defence volunteer was found murdered in Surajkund, Faridabad, the police Tuesday said the case had been transferred to the Crime Branch for a thorough investigation.
The Crime Branch, DLF, had sought five days’ remand to question the accused, Mohammad Nizammudin, who claims he was married to the victim. The court remanded him to 3 days’ police custody. Vikas Arora, police commissioner, Faridabad, said, “The accused, in his statement to Delhi Police, had confessed that he killed his wife and they had married in a court in Saket. It has been found that a lot of phone calls were exchanged between them. I want to make it clear that according to post-mortem report, there was no sexual assault. However, to verify all facts and claims and have a thorough investigation, we have transferred the case to the Crime Branch.”
