Delhi girl’s murder mystery solved because of missed call.

The shocking murder of an 11-year-old girl in Delhi’s Nangloi area has been cracked after her mother received a missed call from an unknown number on the day she went missing.

The minor girl, who was allegedly kidnapped and killed on February 9, went missing after leaving home for school that morning.

The victim’s mother got a missed call at around 11.50 am that day, and when she called back, the number was switched off. The family alerted the cops, and a 21-year-old man, identified as Rohit alias Vinod was arrested 12 days later in connection with the crime.

The victim's family had reported her missing on the day of her disappearance, and the police started a probe into the matter. A complaint was registered, suspecting that their daughter was abducted, and a case was subsequently filed on February 10.

After the victim's mother notified the police about the call they traced down the location of the number with the help of electronic surveillance and carried out raids in Punjab and Madhya Pradesh.

On February 21, the accused was arrested, and in the time of interrogation, he confessed to the crime and disclosed that he murdered the girl on February 9 and disposed her dead body near Ghevra Mor. The cops retrieved the girl's decaying body from Mundka village.

The body of the minor victim was sent for postmortem, and the accused was brought before the court and placed on police remand for questioning.

According to senior police officials, the exact motive for the killing is yet to emerge. A postmortem report will confirm if there was any sexual assault on the girl. Further proceedings into the case are underway.
