Three persons, including a minor, were arrested on Friday for the murder of a 22-year-old youth in South Delhi’s Fatehpur Beri area. Police said the three were friends of the deceased, Kuldeep, whose body was found decapitated and brutalised.

“The body was found in Bhati Mines in Fatehpur Beri area on Thursday evening. We arrested his friends Preetam, Kishan and a minor from Sanjay Basti, where Kuldeep lived with his family. Preetam was in love with a girl, who Kuldeep was seeing. Preetam had frequent fights with him over the issue. On Wednesday night, he decided to kill Kuldeep. The three of them took Kuldeep out for dinner. They beheaded him and brutalised his body before dumping it in Bhati Mines,” a senior police officer said.

Kuldeep’s parents informed police when he did not return home on Wednesday night. After his body was found on Thursday evening, his family identified it. A case of murder was registered. Police questioned his friends and arrested the three.
Kuldeep was working as a delivery boy in Gurgaon.
