With the arrest of a 17-year-old girl who went missing from the Raipur area of Dehradun, the Uttarakhand police claimed to have solved a murder case of a man.
The deceased was identified as Narendra alias Bunty whose body was found in a jungle in the Aamwala Tarla area of Dehradun. Bunty had gone missing on March 16 following which his family filed a missing complaint with the Dalanwala police station.
A 17-year-old girl had also gone missing at the same time from Raipur area. A complaint was lodged on March 20. Police soon began looking for the girl. They looked at CCTV footage from the area where she was last seen and distributed photos at bus stop and railway stations.
Police were able to locate the girl. When the girl was brought in for questioning by the police, they also got to know about her lover Akash. He too was called to the police station for questioning. It was during these sessions that the cops managed to unravel shocking details about Narendra.
She told the investigating officer that Narendra was her former boyfriend. She broke up with him a few months ago and met Akash on Facebook. They began a relationship and were planning to get married.
