On Thursday, the Delhi Police announced the involvement of two more people — Ashutosh and Ankush — in the Kanjhawala case, in which a woman was dragged for 12 kilometers by a car that hit her scooter. The two newly accused people attempted to tamper with the evidence and provide false information.

Latest Case Report –
In the Sultanpuri accident case, where a 20-year-old lady died after being dragged beneath a car for 12 kilometers in unbelievable circumstances, police officials announced to the public on Thursday that they have implicated two more people involved in the situation, according to a senior police official who spoke at the news conference and stated a search has been started for them.
One of the suspects may be seen leaving the car and bending to look beneath the left side of the car. This is consistent with the forensic investigation, which determined that Anjali’s body was stuck to the vehicle’s left front wheel.
This serves as undeniable proof that the defendant was aware Anjali was trapped under the vehicle. The five guys were aware that she was trapped, and the Delhi Police verified that they are trying to hide the evidence.
During questioning, we found two other people involved in the incident. Our team is conducting raids. We have a copy of the witnesses’ testimony, he continued. They attempted to cover the culprits of the horrifying crime, according to senior police officer Sagar Preet Hooda. He added, that these two persons attempted to tamper with the evidence.
“Ashutosh, one of them, is the one who lent the car to the five suspects. Ankush Khanna, the second person, is the brother of one of the defendants who helped in hiding information regarding the license. The driver was driving without a license at the time of the collision,” according to the police.
“We discovered that Amit, not Deepak without a license was the car’s driver during interrogation. Two more people have been named as suspects in this case. Sagar Preet Hooda, Special CP (Law and Order), said there was no indication of sexual assault discovered after the post-mortem. “We’re trying to get them.
Meanwhile, the friend of the deceased who reportedly, had fled the spot after the accident due to fear of legal trouble is being seen ‘only as an eye-witness’, media reports claim.
18 Teams Are Investigating The Case.
Police added that 18 teams are working on the case investigation, and every angle is being verified.
“We are working as quickly as we can to file the charge sheet. The Delhi Police are looking into this matter in a total of 18 teams. The five accused who were arrested have been identified as Deepak Khanna (26), Amit Khanna (25), Krishan (27), Mithun (26), and Manoj Mittal (27). Two among them parked the car in a parking lot and all five then fled in an auto.
According to Sagar Preet Hooda, Special Commissioner of Police (Law and Order), her statement has been recorded in accordance with section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
