The Case’s Eyewitness –
Deepak Dahiya owns a sweets shop near Kanjhawala Road in the village of Ladpur. He claimed that the accused dragged the woman’s body, which had been entangled to their vehicle, for 18 to 20 kilometers and for around one and a half hours.
“The time was 3:20 a.m., I was standing outside the store when I heard a loud noise coming from around 100 meters distant from a vehicle. Initially, I believed it was a tire rupture. I noticed a body being dragged as soon as the car moved. I immediately contacted the police” According to Dahiya.
After some time, he stated around 3:30 a.m., the car made a U-turn, and the woman’s lifeless corpse was still trapped beneath the vehicle. Dahiya said the accused drove repeatedly on the road of about 4-5 kilometers by repeatedly taking U-turns. “I tried to stop them many times but they did not stop the vehicle. For about one and a half hours they carried the woman’s body for about 20 km, I tried to stop them multiple times but they did not stop the vehicle,” he claimed.
Dahiya stated that he chased the car on his motorcycle and was in contact with the police. Later, the body fell from the car near Jyoti village on Kanjhawala Road after approximately an hour and a half, he claimed, and the suspects escaped. “It couldn’t be an accident,” Dahiya insisted.
Accused Unaware of Dragging the Woman: POLICE–
The victim’s leg got caught in one of the car’s wheels, dragging her for a few kilometers, according to Deputy Commissioner of Police (outer) Harendra Kumar Singh. Police claimed that the suspect was unaware that their car was dragging the victim. Later, when they learned about it, they became terrified. Then they pulled the corpse from the car and ran off. They then escaped after removing the body from the car.
A case under IPC sections 304-A (causing death by negligence) and 279 (rash driving) have been filed against the five suspects. The victim used to take part-time work for weddings and other occasions. She was on her way home when it happened.
