The Inside Story

Abduction and Murder of a Teenage Girl in Delhi

In a horrific incident, a 16-year-old girl was allegedly abducted in broad daylight from Vikaspuri, kept in confinement for more than 24 hours in a flat in Dwarka, and brutally murdered when she resisted her abductor's apparent rape attempt. The suspect, Om Yadav, a neighbour of the victim, has been arrested and has admitted to the crime. The girl was a resident of Uttam Nagar in west Delhi and was studying in Class XI at a government school. She was preparing for her medical exams and left her home daily around 3 pm to attend coaching classes.

The family informed the police when the girl did not return home on Thursday evening. A search was launched for her, and the police zeroed in on Om Yadav based on the location of the calls and an eyewitness who had seen the girl and the accused on Thursday morning. During interrogation, the accused admitted to killing the girl when she resisted his attempts to rape her. The dagger used to kill the girl has been seized, and the police have recovered the girl's bag from the accused's flat.

The victim and the accused were neighbours and knew each other. The accused had taken the flat on rent and would bring girls there. He confessed that he murdered her under the influence of alcohol. Thepolice seized liquor bottles from the flat, and the accused had a history of such crimes. The tragic incident is a reminder that women are not safe in the capital, even in broad daylight and in their neighborhoods, and highlights the need for stricter laws to prevent such heinous crimes.
