Police also suspects that the accused Sahil used to wear kalawa (a cotton red thread) to hide his real identity or religion.
"As per the information as of now, they (Sahil-Sakshi) knew each other and there was some quarrel or they parted ways. The accused (Sahil) had a grudge and he did this kind of gruesome murder. It's a crime of passion. Further probe is being done," Delhi Police Special CP Dependra Pathak said.
"We have detained the accused, Sahil from Bulandshahr, UP. We are further investigating the matter. The victim was going to attend a function during which this incident took place. The accused used to live under the Shahbad Dairy police station area," said DCP Outer North Ravi Kumar Singh.
"Even an uneducated person can never be so cruel that he ends up killing someone like this. There were several people at the spot when the incident took place but no one took any action. The judiciary should take this matter to a fast-track court and announce the verdict as early as possible," said Rekha Sharma, Chairperson, NCW.
