New Delhi: A Delhi police team has cracked the murder case of a Nigerian national, who was stabbed to death in Mehrauli a week ago after a scuffle had broken out between two groups.
The 35-year-old arrested Nigerian national, Osaretin alias Ogbuku, came to India in 2010. After murdering a fellow Nigerian, identified as Hillary, Osaretin had planned to sneak away to Nepal and then leave for Nigeria. However, he ran out of luck after the police team received a tip-off and nabbed him from Kishanganj in Bihar.
During probe, Osaretin disclosed that on March 9, people of his group had a fight with another group and that the other group had beaten a member, Kaubw, of his group.
According to DCP (South) Romil Baaniya, a fight had broken out between two groups of African nationals after consuming alcohol. Upon investigation, Osaretin appeared as the prime suspect in the case.
“A police team raided his house in Faridabad but he was missing. It was learnt that he had hired a cab and left for Assam. The team started verifying all the cabs and their hard work paid rich dividend when they found out the cab hired by him and its location was traced near Faizabad. The information was immediately shared with senior officers, who sounded the local police to place a check post on the route taken by the accused,” said Mr Baaniya.
