Parvati Devi,aunt of Baljeet Malik (alias Poppy),one of the suspects in the Jigisha-Soumya murders,was shocked when Newsline visited Malik’s house (B-52) at Masoodpur village in Vasant Kunj. “Our child has been framed — he cannot do all this,” she said.

Neighbour and childhood friend Amit Malik said Malik won the title of Mr Delhi in a body-building competition last year. According to him,Malik became friends with (co-suspects) Ravi Kapoor and Amit Shukla over the past few months. “We asked him on several occasion to leave their company but he didn’t listen,” he said.

An officer said the police picked up Malik two days ago while he was coming out of gym — a CCTV footage identifying him was found from Prem Wristwatches shop in Sarojini Nagar market,the officer said.

Amit Malik said Poppy got into body building after clearing Class XII Boards. “He claimed he had no further use for studies and wanted to join railways in the sports quota.”
