Two men have been ar­rested for killing a 23-year-old man af­ter he had asked them to re­turn his money in Outer Delhi’s Sul­tan­puri area on Wed­nes­day morn­ing. Po­lice said that the vic­tim had lent Rs 4000 to one of the ac­cused.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, the ac­cused have been iden­ti­fied as Ajay(23) and Sa­gar (22), both res­i­dents of Sul­tan Puri area. They were ar­rested from Man­golpuri af­ter they stabbed the vic­tim Yo­gesh to death in a park. Both the ac­cused were ar­rested within two hours of the in­ci­dent.

“On Wed­nes­day morn­ing, while our staff was pa­trolling in the area, a man named Ji­ten­der Ku­mar in­formed them that he along with his friend Yo­gesh had gone to a park where the two men Sa­gar and Ajay at­tacked and stabbed his friend. The team im­me­di­ately reached the spot and rushed Yo­gesh to a nearby hos­pi­tal where he was de­clared dead on ar­rival,” said Seju Ku­ruvilla, Deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (Outer Delhi).

Dur­ing the ini­tial probe, where­abouts of both the ac­cused were traced and teams were sent to the spot to nab them.

“The two were nabbed from their rel­a­tive’s place in Man­golpuri where they were hid­ing. Dur­ing in­ter­ro­ga­tion, the ac­cused con­fessed to the crime. Ajay dis­closed that he had bor­rowed Rs 4000 from Yo­gesh. Around a week ago, Yo­gesh asked him to re­turn the money how­ever when Ajay failed to do the same they got into a scuf­fle,” said Ku­ruvilla.

“Ajay fur­ther re­vealed that fol­low­ing the scuf­fle he planned to elim­i­nate him,” po­lice said.

“On Thurs­day morn­ing, Ajay along with Sa­gar wait­ing out­side his house when Yo­gesh and Ji­ten­der reached the spot. Soon they en­gaged into a heated ar­gu­ment. Dur­ing the scuf­fle, Sa­gar sud­denly held Yo­gesh from the back while Ajay at­tacked stabbed him with a knife. The two dragged the 23-year-old’s body to a nearby park and fled from the spot,” said Ku­ruvilla.

“The two ac­cused are vagabonds and did odd jobs to fill their stom­achs,” po­lice added.
