Police in Delhi have obtained CCTV footage showing a 20-year-old woman being dragged under a car in a fatal incident that took place in the Sultanpuri area on the night of Saturday to Sunday.
According to the footage, a silver Maruti Baleno car can be seen making a U-turn in the Kanjhawala area, with the woman’s body visible under the vehicle on the left side. The car made the U-turn at 3:34 a.m. on Sunday, just ahead of the Ladpur village towards Tosi village.
The woman died after her scooter was involved in an accident and her clothes became tangled in the wheel of the car, causing her to be dragged for several kilometers.
The woman’s clothes were torn in the incident and her naked body was later found by the police. Her scooter was discovered about 12 kilometers from the site of the accident.
The police have arrested five people who were in the car at the time of the incident. They have been identified as Deepak Khanna, Amit Khanna, Krishan, Mitthu, and Manoj Mittal.
Mittal is a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). On Monday, the woman’s family and supporters protested outside the Sultanpuri Police station, throwing stones at and tearing down a poster of Mittal that had been placed on a pole outside the station.
Extra police personnel have been deployed to the station where the accused are being held. The woman’s family, who say she worked as an event planner for weddings, suspect foul play in the incident.
