Jammu:

The Jammu and Kashmir police today claimed to have solved a case relating to the murder of a youth in Rajouri district last week with the arrest of three suspects, including his younger sister.

Ankit Bakshi (24) was found murdered at his house in Chakli village in the early hours of August 11.

“A Special Investigation Team was constituted to crack the case. Based on its investigation, three suspects, including Bakshi’s sister Priya (21) and her boyfriend Rajan Sharma were arrested,” Senior Superintendent of Police, Rajouri, Sheema Nabi Qasba told reporters.

She said sustained questioning of the accused had revealed that Rajan and Priya were in a relationship for the past one year and Ankit had objected to it.

“Due to this, a criminal conspiracy was hatched to eliminate Bakshi,” the SSP said.

The police withheld the name of the third accused, believed to be a juvenile whose age is being confirmed.

The SSP said the accused have admitted to their involvement in the crime and some more arrests are expected.

She said attempts were made to mislead the public and the investigation team and “we are looking into this angle minutely”. The investigation team suspected the involvement of someone from within the family as the culprits gained easy access into the house to commit the crime, the officer said.
