New Delhi: All four accused involved in the murder of a 22-year-old youth in a park in Govindpuri were arrested on Sunday night.

On Saturday evening, the four accused were sitting on a wall of Tughlaqabad fort when they saw the couple. 

The gang followed and ambushed them, and fled after the victim, Naresh, fell on the ground.

Surinder (31), also going by the name Soni, said that he had committed the murder because he wanted to gift gold jewellery to his wife for her birthday.

Soni was arrested from Govindpuri and led the police to his accomplices Sanjay alias Machchi (33), Pawan Kumar (23) and Ram Babu alias Vishambar (21).

DCP (southeast) Chinmoy Biswal said that the weapons used for the murder and the robbed items have been retrieved from the accused.

Though no CCTV footage was found near the crime scene, the police solved the case with help from local informers and the description given by the female friend of the victim.

Sanjay, one of the accused told the cops that he was a resident of Lucknow and had come to Delhi for a court appearance on January 9.

He took part in the crime because he needed to pay his lawyer.

Surender and Sanjay had been arrested in the past for committing a similar robbery bid in the same park in 2014.
