For the Delhi murder, a man was found in a refrigerator, his brother and 1 other detained: cops
A day after the body of 50-year-old Zakir was found locked in a refrigerator at his home in Seelampur, northeast Delhi, police arrested his brother and another person with links to the murder, officials said Saturday.
The defendants were identified as Aabid Hussain (55), a resident of Chauhan Bangar, and Jahid (25), a resident of Wazirpur Industrial Zone, they said.
Hussain is Zakir’s brother. Zakir lived alone in the house, while his wife and children live separately remotely, according to police.
During questioning, the defendants said they had come with the intention of stealing as they had information that Zakir was in possession of cash and jewelry, a senior police officer said.
At the instance of the accused, cash and jewelery of Rs 4 lakh was recovered and efforts are underway to seize the remaining missing valuables, police said. The offensive weapon, a hammer and other items like bags in which the stolen items were taken were also recovered, they added.
