Lucknow police arrest two youths who hacked Gauri to pieces

In a major breakthrough in the murder of a girl, whose body was found chopped into pieces in Lucknow’s SGPGI area, police have arrested two youths and said they have recovered the victim’s mobile phone as well as a saw used in the crime. The arrests come a week after Gauri Srivastava (19), a law student, went missing on February 1 after leaving her house in Aminabad area. Her body was found the next day.

Himanshu Prajapati (23) and his friend Anuj Kumar Gautam were arrested late Saturday night, DGP Arvind Kumar Jain said. He said Himanshu had committed the crime. Addressing a news conference, the DGP said Himanshu, whose father works as a sweeper at a hospital, murdered Gauri at his house in Telibagh area under PGI police station on February 1. Police said he was enraged on seeing some photographs and video clips she had exchanged with her male friends on WhatsApp, a mobile messaging application.

The DGP said that a common friend had introduced Gauri to Himanshu one-and-a-half years ago and they had remained in regular contact through WhatsApp only. “I started liking her,” Himanshu, who is pursuing his B Com through distance programme of Jodhpur National University, reportedly told the police.
