Family of the victim alleged that the police officials at Modi Nagar let off the men named in the FIR. The same accused were arrested later who then revealed the location of the dead body
As many as 130 personnel from Modi Nagar police station were sent to police lines on Tuesday in a major crackdown by top police officials after the dismembered body of a 15-year-old schoolgirl was found on September 15 — a day after her severed head was found.
The girl was allegedly kidnapped by several men while she was on the way to her school on September 4. Her family alleged that the police officials let off the men named in the FIR and the same accused were arrested later and they revealed the location of the dead body.
The accused had reportedly told the police that they murdered the girl and threw the body in fields near Kalcheena in Modi Nagar.
“We have transferred nearly 130-132 personnel from Modi Nagar police station area. Staff from police lines and other police stations will replace them now. The decision has been taken to maintain order,” said HN Singh, senior superintendent of police, Ghaziabad.
Sources said those facing action include constables, women constables, senior sub inspector and head constables.
Local residents, associations and politicians have been staging routine protests in Modi Nagar against the ghastly crime.
“We demand a CBI probe into the incident. We had named the accused in the FIR but the police let them off earlier. Later, they threatened me that I have lodged an FIR and the girl would not be spared. The same men murdered the girl. They were finally picked up again and the dead body of my daughter was recovered,” said the girl’s father.
“Her head was found on the instance of the accused on September 4. A day later, the dismembered and decomposed body was found. There is a larger conspiracy involved into the incident. We also demand action against the policemen and an FIR be lodged against them,” he said.
The police have already arrested five persons in the case. On the day when the body was found, the SSP had also suspended the investigating officer and had transferred the Modi Nagar station house officer to police lines.
Counselling sessions for students of Ryan International school will also be held. Several students had reported trauma due to the brutal murder of the eight-year-old boy on September 8.
The Gurgaon administration launched works on Wednesday to plug security gaps at Ryan International School in Bhondsi. The school was taken over by the Gurgaon deputy commissioner after a Class 2 student was murdered in the school toilet.
On Wednesday, construction on the boundary wall and installation of CCTVs -- both pointed out in the list of lapses by a three-member panel -- was taken up.
The school had reopened, after remaining closed for 10 days, on Monday. But it was closed again, till Monday next.
“We have closed the school due to the security concerns raised by some parents,” said Deputy commissioner Vinay Pratap Singh. He said work would be completed in a few days before the classes resume.
Counselling sessions for the students will also be held. Several students had reported trauma due to the brutal murder of the eight-year-old boy on September 8.
“New CCTV cameras are being bought and installed on the school campus, which will cover all the major areas including the entry and exit of the school, staircases, entrance of toilets and all corridors,” said a school teacher.
New support staff, including women attendants, is being hired and trained. Eight new security guards have been hired and are undergoing stringent training to manage entry and exit gates.
“We have been told not to allow any one to enter the school without an ID card. Every student who will leave school before the scheduled time, must have a pass issued by the authorities,” said Sanju, a 33-year-old security guard, who was hired recently.
The teachers have been asked to assign assignments to the students online so that they can make up for time lost during the transition. The teachers will also take extra classes once the school reopens, said one of the teachers.
NEW DELHI: The 35-year-old woman found dead in northwest Delhi's Bhalswa Dairy four days ago was a ragpicker who was bludgeoned to death with rods and bricks in a sexual assault bid, police said. The accused, Saufi, has been arrested; police claimed he had indulged in necrophilia as well.
Police said the naked body of the mother of three had been thrown at the waste dumping site by Saufi, who then alerted a local about the body so that nobody would suspect him of murdering the woman. He laid low for a day and then returned to his normal schedule.
Police said 20-year-old Saufi, too, worked as a ragpicker and was the last person seen near the woman before she was found dead.
Police said the woman bore severe injury marks on her head and genitals, and sexual abuse was confirmed by an autopsy.
A senior police officer said the woman lived near where her body was found and had dropped her children off at school before heading to collect scrap.
A case under sections of the law dealing with murder was registered and a team led by SHO (Bhalswa Dairy) Virender Singh was formed to track down the killer.
Several places in northwest Delhi and other parts of the city were raided and a few people were detained for questioning. When eyewitnesses emerged, police were able to zero in on Saufi, who, police claimed, confessed his crime and said he had killed her because she had refused to let him touch her. He also confessed to having tried to have sex with the woman's corpse in the middle of a field near the dumping ground where he finally left the body, police claimed.
During inquiry, the complainant, Ashish Tyagi, told police that he and his friends — Arora and Sharma — were going towards Jheel Chowk, Geeta Colony, on a scooter.
Four men were arrested Tuesday night for allegedly stabbing to death a man and injuring his friend after the latter intervened in an argument between the accused and a car driver over giving way in Geeta Colony area of Shahdara.

He is undergoing treatment,” the officer added.
During inquiry, the complainant, Ashish Tyagi, told police that he and his friends — Arora and Sharma — were going towards Jheel Chowk, Geeta Colony, on a scooter. “When they reached near a dhaba, they found three motorcyclists arguing with a car driver,” police said. Arora and Sharma tried to pacify both parties but one of the motorcyclists took out a knife, stabbed them several times and fled.
