According to reports, in the Delhi Fridge case, Sahil Gehlot, a 24-year-old recent graduate in pharmaceuticals, has been arrested on suspicion of murdering his girlfriend, Nikki Yadav, aged 24. The couple had been in a relationship since 2018.
Delhi Police have reportedly retrieved CCTV footage from Dwarka, showing 24-year-old Nikki Yadav shortly before she was allegedly murdered by her partner, 24-year-old Sahil Gehlot. Gehlot is accused of hiding Yadav’s body in a refrigerator at his family’s dhaba.
Yadav was killed inside a vehicle late in the evening of February 9th near Delhi’s Kashmere Gate, and her body was then transported to Mitraon Village, where Gehlot’s family-owned dhaba is situated.
The police claim that Gehlot murdered Yadav because she wished to marry him, but he was already engaged to someone else by his family, a fact which he concealed from Yadav. After reportedly committing the murder, Gehlot went home and got married on the same day.
