Yadav also allegedly told police that his family was aware of all his criminal activities.
The questioning also revealed that Yadav’s wife’s family had approached the Women’s Cell as they were not happy with the court marriage and wanted their daughter to end it, Assistant Commissioner of Police (Crime) Rajesh Kumar said.
On Tuesday, Yadav was taken to Delhi for recovery of weapon and also to reveal details of hideouts in Delhi. Three other accused in the case were produced in a city court and remanded in judicial custody for 14 days.
