Minor girl murdered by her 'friend' inside a auto in New Delhi


She was shot dead in the front of her house after which the man fled the spot. Preliminary investigations revealed that Puja was at a lunch party along with a few friends, including Yogesh, Shubham and Nitin.

There was an attempt on Yogesh's life a few years ago and self-defence was the ground he had provided to obtain the licence for a 0.315 bore pistol. Shubham had fled from the vehicle. After having lunch, they went for shopping in a mall.

The victim's mother and her friend Yogesh rushed the girl to the hospital, where the doctors declared her brought dead. She immediately rushed her daughter in the same vehicle to the Ayushman Hospital, where she was declared brought dead by the doctors. The vehicle and pistol, recovered from the spot, belonged to Yogesh, the DCP added. We are also talking to her mother and get more details about Shubham.

Shubham and his family are absconding, according to the police.

The girl reportedly knew Shubham for some time. When her daughter did not return, her mother started getting anxious and started making phone calls at around 7 pm to get in touch with her. At 6.30 pm, the girl's mother started calling incessantly.

The murder weapon has been found, officials said.

The girl was taken to a hospital by her mother and a friend. "They also went to a pub where they all consumed alcohol", Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Surender Kumar told IANS.
