According to police, they received a call on Monday around 1.40 am, and found Rouhaan lying in a pool of blood with injuries on the neck and abdomen at the spot.

Sagar Singh Kalsi, DCP (North), said, “The man worked as a momo seller, and lived with around 10 persons in a room nearby. He was the breadwinner of his family. There were no eyewitnesses. We formed five teams and sent them to identify and arrest the accused.”

The accused, Noor Mohammad (22), was caught with the robbed cash and a knife.

Police said Noor lived near the victim’s place. He had planned to commit robbery because he didn’t have a job. “He was standing outside the victim’s dwelling when he overheard the man talking about carrying cash. He took his scarf and strangulated the man. The victim collapsed, but the accused then stabbed him multiple times to make sure he was dead. He fled with the cash, leaving the body on the ground,” said a police officer.

A total of 26 CCTVs near the spot were scanned. People living on the first floor of the building were questioned. Police identified a suspect who was seen entering and leaving the building twice at 7 pm.

“We spoke to the victim’s mother, RWA members, informers and locals to identify the suspect. The accused was arrested from a nearby locality after raids,” said the DCP.
