In a shocking and heinous crime that has sent shockwaves through the community, a 20-year-old youth identified as Sahil has been arrested for the brutal murder of a 16-year-old girl named Sakshi in northwest Delhi’s Shahbad Dairy. The preliminary investigation has revealed that Sahil was driven by anger and rage following his breakup with the victim, which escalated into a violent confrontation, ultimately leading to her tragic demise.
According to the police, Sahil had been in a relationship with Sakshi since June 2021. However, their relationship had been increasingly strained, marked by frequent arguments and disagreements. The situation worsened in recent days when Sakshi decided to end the relationship and stopped communicating with Sahil. Despite her clear intentions, Sahil persisted in trying to reconcile with her, leading to further conflicts.
On the fateful day, a heated altercation between the two culminated in a horrifying act of violence. Sahil allegedly stabbed Sakshi over 20 times and mercilessly bludgeoned her to death with a cement slab. The gruesome nature of the crime is evident from the 34 wounds found on Sakshi’s body, including a ruptured skull. The final autopsy report is still pending, shedding light on the full extent of the tragedy.
Authorities swiftly launched an investigation, reviewing CCTV footage from the area and speaking to Sakshi’s family, who informed them about her association with Sahil. The police discovered that Sahil had fled the scene and switched off his mobile phone. However, their breakthrough came when Sahil’s father received a call from his aunt in Bulandshahr, Uttar Pradesh, which enabled the police to trace his location. Sahil was apprehended in Bulandshahr, and he is currently in custody.
As the investigation progresses, the police are also delving into the details of a tattoo Sakshi had on her hand bearing the name ‘Praveen.’ This name could potentially be linked to another source of conflict between Sahil and the victim, shedding further light on the motive behind the horrific murder.
The shocking incident serves as a stark reminder of the importance of addressing relationship issues in a healthy and non-violent manner. It also highlights the need for increased awareness and support systems to prevent such tragic outcomes. The community is left grieving and grappling with the loss of a young life, while the legal system works to ensure that justice is served for Sakshi.
