Anjali Singh, the deceased victim, was struck from behind by a car with five occupants after midnight on Saturday, and was then dragged for a distance of 12 kilometres, according to the police.
The five suspects in the case have all been detained by police for three days after their arrests.
According to the Delhi Police, the case against the accused has been registered under sections 279 (rash driving), 304, 120 B, and 304 A (causing death by negligence) of the IPC. Calling the incident as “extremely sad”, Delhi Police said: “All five accused Deepak, Manoj, Mithun, Amit, Kishan have been arrested. We are in touch with the family. Evidence is being gathered by all means. Will add further sections of IPC on the basis of investigation. Forensic and legal team is investigating.”
Delhi Police said on Monday that the post-mortem of the deceased in the Kanjhawala death case was finished.
The post-mortem was performed at Maulana Azad Medical College by a group of three doctors, and the results have yet to be released.
According to sources in the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL), the FSL authorities examined the car and found no signs of blood inside or on the seats, news agency IANS reported.
According to the sources, FSL only discovered blood traces on the car’s tyre, which proves the deceased wasn’t in the vehicle.
The FSL team also went to the location of the crime where the girl’s corpse was discovered and took samples there.
“When the FSL team inspected car, there was no blood inside or on the car’s seats. They only found the blood on the tyre,” the source was quoted by IANS in its report.
