Aarzoo Singh’s family has alleged Naveen Khatri’s family members also have a hand in her murder.
Kavita, the victim’s mother, said, “She was late on February 2 and I called on her phone, which was switched off. One of her friends told us over phone that Aarzoo was last seen with him (Khatri). When I called Khatri, her sister picked up and responded rudely.”
She added, “Khatri’s brother asked to be quiet and threatened us with dire consequences if we approached the police. I told him we did not want anything from them except our daughter, but they killed her. If they were afraid Arzoo would disrupt the wedding, they should have told us and we would have ensured it went smoothly.”
Payal, the victim’s elder sister, said, “She went to college on February 2 like any other day. She usually returned home by 4 pm, but when she did not return that day, we approached police. They found her charred body on Saturday night and called us for to identify it.”
She added, “Khatri and my sister wanted to get married. Today we found out she was murdered. They were afraid that she would create a scene at the wedding. That is why they killed her.”
