Man arrested for murdering 72-year-old | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Delhi Police on Saturday arrested a man for allegedly killing an elderly woman in the South Campus area on Friday. The accused has been identified as Rajender Chauhan (40).
The case came to light on Friday, when the body of a woman aged 72 years was found lying under RTR flyover.
Deputy commissioner of police (southwest) Gaurav Sharma said they picked up a few suspects, including beggars who reside near the flyover, and they were interrogated. “We found the statement of one Rajender Chauhan dubious. On sustained interrogation, he confessed to the crime,” he said.
Police said the accused thought that the woman, who was also a beggar, was having lots of money.
“On Friday, the accused entered the old lady’s tent and found her sleeping. While he was searching for the money, the woman woke up. The accused then attacked the woman, slit her neck and fled with Rs 2,000 cash,” the police officer said.
