Sources said the MLA’s driver,identified as Mohammad Nadeem,was detained from Meerut on Saturday morning and brought to Delhi. He is being questioned at the Welcome police station.

Sources said a family member under the scanner is absconding. “He was called two days ago to join investigations. He has not surfaced yet. His call details have shown his location in New Jafrabad area around the time the murder was committed,” an officer said.
