Sonepat, November 15

The police have arrested another accused, Vikram of Pithoragarh in Uttarakhand, in connection with the killing of wrestler Nisha Dahiya and her brother Suraj in Halalpur village. Inspector Karamjeet Singh, SHO, said Vikram had been nabbed at the Kharkhoda bypass.

He said during interrogation it was found that the accused had thrown the digital video recorder (DVR) installed at the academy into a nearby canal after the murders. “We tried to retrieve the equipment, but in vain,” the SHO said. Nisha was shot at Sushil Kumar Wrestling Academy on the outskirts of Halalpur while her teenaged brother was shot near the canal. Their mother, who was injured, is recuperating at the PGIMS, Rohtak.

The coach, Pawan, his wife and his two brothers-in-law, Sachin and Amit, have already been arrested. The police on Monday produced Amit in a local court which sent him to judicial custody.
