The police investigation has revealed that the 21-year-old civil defence volunteer, who was brutally murdered on August 27 in Faridabad’s Surajkund, was murdered by her husband Nizamuddin.
"The family of the accused had sent marriage-related documents to Surajkund police station through speed post following his arrest last month. The documents and nikahnama were verified in Saket court; it has been found through documents that the accused and deceased had married in Saket court in June, 2021”, The Indian Express quoted the Faridabad Police spokesperson Sube Singh.
He added “The accused was taken on three days’ police remand. During questioning, he said he suspected her of infidelity and got upset whenever she spoke to other people. They frequently argued over the issue and had been living in their respective houses after the marriage. He has confessed that following an altercation on August 27, he killed her. He had procured a knife and took it along with him (when he went to pick her up) that day.”
Since the victim was from the minority community, fake news peddlers tried to project it as a hate crime against the minority community.
Senior TV journalist Padmaja Joshi posted on Twitter “A young lady was found brutally murdered in Faridabad in the end of August. Protests from Delhi to Tamil Nadu against 'fascist', 'Islamophobic' India. But…”
She added “Everyone melted away quietly when the investigation threw up a fact check. On to the next outrage.”
