Delhi Police are looking for a woman who entered Samachar Apartments complex a few minutes before one of its residents, 64-year-old Vijay Kumar PB, was murdered Wednesday.

Footage from CCTV cameras installed at the entrance gate of the residential complex shows the woman, who appeared to be in her late twenties, going inside the residential complex and leaving within 30 minutes, said sources. “The footage is not very clear… investigators have shown it to the victim’s family members, but they said they have never seen the woman before,” added the sources.

“There were no CCTV cameras outside the residence,” they said.

Investigation has also revealed that while leaving, the woman was carrying a LCD TV set which she didn’t have with her when she entered the complex. However, none of the security guards stopped her to question her about it, said sources.

Initial investigation has revealed that the assailant may have been an acquaintance of Vijay, as he/she seemed to know that the victim would be alone at home at that time of the day.

“Preliminary investigation suggests that the assailant was known to the victim. The assailant was… offered tea and biscuits,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (east) Rishipal Singh.

Investigators are also going through phone records of the victim, hoping to get some leads from them, said sources.
