The accused, identified as Ashwini Yadav (24), was Anjali’s classmate and claimed to have been in a relationship with her.
Noida: With the arrest of an accused from Mainpuri in Uttar Pradesh, the Noida police on Sunday claimed to have solved the murder case of 23-year-old engineer Anjali Rathour.
The accused, identified as Ashwini Yadav (24), was Anjali’s classmate and claimed to have been in a relationship with her. After his arrest on Saturday evening, he confessed to the killing, a police official said.
Anjali was found dead at the parking lot of her residential complex, Shatabdi Vihar, in Noida on Wednesday. CCTV footage had shown a man chasing her with a pistol.
Yadav said he had killed her as she got into a relationship with another man and started ignoring him after he lost his job. According to the police, Yadav had met Anjali a day before the murder. He had bought a country-made pistol from his hometown in Etawah and planned the killing with an accomplice.
The next morning, he entered the society and called her to the parking lot. Sensing trouble, Anjali tried to run, but was shot dead.
Anjali, who is from Jagadhri in Haryana’s Yamuna Nagar area, had allegedly met the accused at the university around two years ago.
Around 15 days ago, a similar incident had taken place in South Delhi’s Malviya Nagar area when a 22-year-old fashion designing graduate was stabbed by her former driver.
While the victim survived, the entire incident had been captured on a CCTV in the area.
