Two people, who were last night arrested in connection with the gruesome killing of Dayalbagh Educational Institute research scholar in this Uttar Pradesh city, were today remanded to police custody for seven days.
Senior Superintendent of Police Subhash Chandra Dubey told newspersons that Uday Swaroop , a relative of an office bearer of a Satsang Sabha, and lab assistant Yashveer Sandhu have been sent to police custody for seven days.
The police made the arrest on the basis of forensic analysis of pubic hair found in the Nano technology lab of the institute that also indicated attempt of sexual assault, the SSP said.
It seems Uday was having one-sided affair with Neha and was harassing her from the past few days.
On March 15, he barged into the laboratory and tried to rape the researcher. On failing, he killed Neha.
The researcher talked to her mother over telephone before her murder at 1733 hrs and later at 1859 hrs, Uday told her mother that she was purchasing a movie ticket.
Later, the security guard spotted Neha's car outside the gate.
The SSP informed that they have so far interrogated 218 people and sent hair samples of 15 people to forensic lab.
The police was under tremendous pressure to work out the case as the student fraternity and relative of the deceased were demanding CBI probe into the incident.
