Fatehgarh Sahib, December 16

The district police claim to have solved the blind murder of a 15-year-old boy who was kidnapped from the outside of his house in Duffehra village recently and was found dead at a sugarcane field of adjoining Ghel village.

The kidnapper had demanded ransom, but Sahil's parents could not contact him as his mobile phone was switched off. Addressing mediapersons, Fatehgarh Sahib SSP Amneet Kondal said the police cracked the blind murder case within 48 hours. She said after the murder, an SIT led by Jagjit Singh Jallah, SP (Investigation), and Sukhminder Singh Chauhan, DSP, Bassi Pathana, was formed, which successfully solved the case.

"During investigation, it was found that Angrej Kumar, one of the close friends of Sahil, was missing from his home. We focused on him and succeeded in tracing him. During interrogation, he confessed to killing Sahil," Kondal said.

She said later, the police recovered two SIM cards, a mobile phone used to make calls to Sahil's parents, Sahil's slippers, which Angrej had thrown on the roadside in another sugarcane field of Ghel village, and the hammer used to carry out the crime.

On why he killed Sahil, Angrej said he suspected that the former was keeping a close eye on his sister, which was not acceptable to him.

Kondal said the police would seek his police remand and probe if any other person was also involved in the crime.
