Delhi girl dragging case: In a major development in the Delhi girl dragging case, the police on Tuesday said that the victim was not alone on the scooty during the accident.
According to ANI, the Delhi Police said, “When we traced the deceased’s route, it was discovered that she wasn’t riding her scooter alone. She was with the victim when the incident occurred. She was hurt and tried to run away, but the deceased’s legs became caught in the vehicle, causing her to be dragged.
Police traced the victim’s female passenger and recorded her statement. Anjali Singh, 20, was riding a scooter with a passenger when she was hit by a car and dragged for more than 14 kilometres in Outer Delhi. The other woman sustained minor injuries, the victim’s leg got stuck in the axle of the car. After this, the accused dragged her along for nearly 14 km.
The victim was returning home early on New Year’s day when a Baleno, occupied by five men in their 20s, hit her, and dragged her from Outer Delhi to Rohini for almost an hour as the accused kept taking rounds in Kanjhawala.
According to the sources, “While tracing the route taken by the deceased and accused, we found that Anjali wasn’t alone on that night. She was with a female friend. They left work together on her Scooty. At the time of the incident, the friend also sustained injuries but she fled from the spot. She didn’t call or report this to the police.”
