Later,she called a local shopkeeper for a phone recharge. Around 9 pm,she spoke to Aleem,who was in Jeddah for Haj pilgrimage.

On Thursday,police questioned Meenu,who told investigators that she had gone to meet her aunt,Rachna at her residence in Rajgarh colony in Krishna Nagar for lunch.

Police on Friday questioned Aleem on the property dispute between him and Rehana.

The dispute has been going on for the past four months after Aleem told her he wanted to sell the flat he bought for her in New Jafrabad.

He wanted Rehana to move with him to Bulandhshahr. Rehana wanted to sell that flat and purchase a new one in East Delhi’s Laxmi Nagar.
