Three ar­rested for stab­bing petrol pump staff to death

DNA (Delhi) - - DELHI - DNA Cor­re­spon­dent

Three per­sons have been ar­rested for mur­der­ing an em­ployee at the Bharat Petroleum Petrol sta­tion in North­West Delhi’s Adarsh Na­gar area, the po­lice said on Mon­day. The three ac­cused were try­ing to rob him and dur­ing the scuf­fle ac­ci­den­tally stabbed him.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the ac­cused have been iden­ti­fied as Vishal Sonkar (23), Nikhil Saxena (19) and Puneet alias Raju (24). On the in­stance of Puneet, the mur­der weapon was re­cov­ered as well. On April 13, the ac­cused men stabbed a 27-year-old man Naresh, who was an em­ployee of the Bharat Petroleum Petrol Pump near the pump when he was head­ing home af­ter fin­ish­ing his work. The ac­cused men who were drunk at the time of the in­ci­dent de­cided to rob him.

“It was at 1:30 am when the ac­cused spot­ted Naresh. See­ing him in his uni­form, they thought he would have a lot of cash on him. The trio in­ter­cepted him and tried to rob him. The scuf­fle led to him be­ing stabbed and his heart was punc­tured which grad­u­ally led to his death,” said a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cer. A team under the su­per­vi­sion of ACP Hukma Ram has cracked the case.

Dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the po­lice scanned ev­ery ve­hi­cle which was in the area on that night. The lo­cal po­lice re­ceived a break­through when a tip-off was re­ceived that a bike with green al­loy wheels was used in the crime. The mo­tor­cy­cle and knife used in the crime has been re­cov­ered from the pos­ses­sion of the trio. Vishal was ear­lier ar­rested in a rape case in 2014.
