Deceased met Aftab in a call center
The 26-year-old was working in a call center where she met Aftab. They started dating and gradually moved in together. However, her family did not approved of her relationship and hence, the couple eloped and moved to Delhi. Here, they started living in a flat in Mehrauli.
She stopped responding to family’s call
She stopped responding to her family’s call. Her father Vikas Madaan came to Delhi on November 8 to check on her. On reaching the flat he found that it was locked. Following this he approached the Mehrauli police station to formally register a complain in this regard alleging kidnap of her daughter.
Based on the complain, police arrested Aftab on Saturday. During investigation, he revealed that the two fought frequently as the victim wanted to marry him said sources in the police. The search for the deceased’s body parts is still on.
