Faridabad: The prime accused in the killing of Muslim youth Junaid Khan on-board a Mathura-bound train was on Saturday arrested from Dhule district of Maharashtra, the police said.
The killing on June 22 had triggered a nationwide outrage. Inspector Ramdas Patil of Sakri police station said the police questioned a relative of Naresh Indrajit Jaat with whom he was in touch on the phone.
Jaat’s mobile tower location indicated he was somewhere in Dhule. The investigators arrived in the district on Saturday morning along with his relative. They asked him to call the accused and pursuade him to reveal his whereabouts, Patil said.
“This led the investigators to Sakri village. Jaat had come to the village only yesterday, and was staying at atemple on its outskirts. He was looking for a job. The GRP team arrested him from the temple at around 12.30 pm,”he said.
