However, the accused was arrested by police a few hours later as he surrendered himself and while making his statement he confessed that he was planning to make this attempt for the past few days and he took the weapon from his home. It is evident that his family was involved too. He also stated that he and Nargis were in a relationship but due to his financial instability her family refused the proposal and Nargis adhered to her family’s decision. Nonetheless, Irfan wanted to give a last try but when Nargis refused to talk and she rejected him he put her to death out of frustration.
The family of the victim informed that Nargis had graduated from Kamla Nehru College and was taking stenography course while the accused 28-year-old guy Irfan was not on a permanent job and worked as a delivery guy. The families were not on good terms and thus decided against Irfan’s proposal. In Hindu.com it was mentioned that “The woman’s father, Sultaj, a motorcycle mechanic in Sangam Vihar, said that Nargis was his only daughter among three children. “He should be given the death penalty for this,” he said, sobbing outside the mortuary at AIIMS Trauma Centre where his daughter’s post-mortem was conducted”.
Furthermore, the higher authorities also took notice: Conferring to NDTV “The chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), Swati Maliwal, took note of today’s incident as well as the murder of a woman in Delhi’s Dabri area last night and asked how many deaths it would take for the center to fix accountability of the Delhi Police “Delhi, the national capital, has become extremely unsafe. Two incidents have come to light today. A woman was shot in Dabri and another was battered to death with an iron rod in broad daylight. In the entire country, the names of girls are changed in newspapers but the crimes do not stop,” Ms Maliwal said. I want to ask the center how many more deaths will need to happen before they fix the accountability of the Delhi Police. The DCW has taken note of the incidents and notices are being issued to the Delhi Police,” she added
The tribune stated that “Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal slammed the state of law and order in the city following the incident and urged the Union home minister and the lieutenant governor to take strict measures.”Another daughter was brutally murdered in Delhi, it is very sad. Law and order has become a serious issue in Delhi. It is a request to the LG and the Home Minister, to make the police a little active. The safety of the daughters of Delhi and the people of Delhi is very important,” he tweeted”
