The Delhi Police investigating the murder of Nikki Yadav has said that the 23-year-old and the accused, Sahil Gehlot, were not just a live-in couple but were married.
According to the police, the duo had married in an Arya Samaj Temple in 2020, and the accused killed Nikki to marry another woman.
Family was aware of the marriage
The police also said that Sahil’s family, including his father, was aware of the marriage and hatched a conspiracy to get rid of Nikki to marry the other woman.
“She was pleading with him not to go ahead with the marriage fixed by his family with another girl on February 10. However, Sahil, along with his father, two cousins and two friends, hatched the conspiracy and planned to remove the deceased from their way,” a Delhi Police official said.
“Sahil executed the plan and murdered her and informed the other co-accused persons about it on the same day and then all of them went ahead with the marriage ceremony,” the official added.
Five including Sahil’s father arrested
Following Sahil’s revelation, the investigators arrested his father, two cousins, a Delhi Police constable and two friends in connection with the murder on February 9.
The five persons have been booked under sections 120 B (criminal conspiracy), 201 (Causing disappearance of evidence of offence), 202 (knowing or having reason to believe that an offence has been committed), and 212 (harbouring or concealing offender) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
Murder after argument over another marriage
Police said that on February 9, Sahil met Nikki at her Uttam Nagar residence and after spending two-three hours there, the duo went to Nizammudin railway station.
“But as they could not get tickets to Goa, they decided to go to Himachal Pradesh instead and reached ISBT, Kashmere Gate,” said the official.
When the duo reached ISBT, an argument broke out between them. He then strangled Nikki with his mobile phone data cable inside the car, drove to his dhaba to hide her body, and then proceeded with his wedding on February 10.

“None in the family knows anything about this (marriage),” he said.
