His posts on Instagram suggest that he loves to drink and party hard. In many of his posts, one can see Sahil smoking hukkah and drinking alcohol with his friends.
4. Sahil also likes to make reels. Many of his reels on Instagram show him either performing solo or with friends.
5. In one particular reel, captioned as “Judai” Sahil can be seen performing over a woman’s voice that says, “I just want to inform you that I am going to get married in a week. In barely six months, my child will also have a name.” To this, Sahil replies, “My best wishes are with you, if I remain alive, I will definitely come.” The brutal murderer can also be seen acting in the reel with facial expressions.
6. Shockingly, in the reels, Sahil gave tribute to one of his friends who seems to have been arrested.
7. Sahil has Siddu Moosewala’s photo as his first post on Instagram. The posts then go on to show his life with his friends. However, it has no sign of his “girlfriend” Sakshi who he brutally murdered.
8. Involved in a romantic relationship with Sakshi, Sahil killed her while she was on her way to celebrate her friend Neetu's son’s birthday.
9. The blood-curdling CCTV footage of the incident showed Sakshi walking down the street when she is accosted by Sahil. He then proceeded to stab her multiple times and kicked her before smashing her head multiple times with a concrete slab after she fell unconscious. Unfazed by people around, Sahil walked away only to return and throw the slab at the victim again.
10. There have been allegations that Sahil, son of Sarfaraz, wore kalava, a sacred Hindu thread, on his wrist to mislead police.
