Delhi Man Strangled Partner With Data Cable, Kept Body In Fridge: Sources

Nikki was unaware of Sahil’s wedding that was fixed long back.

New Delhi:

The Delhi woman whose body was found in a fridge at a roadside restaurant on Tuesday was strangled with a data cable by her live-in boyfriend, police sources said today.

Sahil Gehlot, 24, has been arrested for allegedly murdering his girlfriend and trying to hide it, in an incident similar to the Shraddha Walkar murder case. He allegedly killed Nikki Yadav, 23, after an argument and decided to stuff her body in the fridge at the dhaba owned by his family.


The car in which the murder occurred and the fridge where the body was stuffed.

The car in which Nikki Yadav was allegedly killed has been seized, sources said. He has been sent to five-day police custody. 

Sahil, a 24-year-old pharma graduate, allegedly married another woman on the day of the murder. 

When Nikki Yadav went missing, the police tracked down Sahil. Nikki’s neighbour had reported her missing; her family back in Haryana’s Jhajjar didn’t know where she was.

Nikki and Sahil met while preparing for medical entrance exams and were in a live-in relationship for years, the police said. She was not aware that Sahil was engaged to another woman.

Her father, Sunil Yadav, has demanded death penalty for Sahil.

The incident has an eerie similarity with the Shraddha Walkar murder case in Delhi last year. Shraddha was allegedly murdered by her live-in partner Aaftab Poonawalla, who chopped her body into several pieces and stored them in a 300-litre fridge before disposing them in a forest area, police had said.
