Three detained for woman researcher's killing case

The police have detained three people in connection with the brutal killing of a woman research scholar in Agra. However, they have been scouting the campus and the nearby areas for clues and evidence.

The police have recovered the researcher’s laptop and a few books from the bushes, a few metres away from the laboratory, on Sunday, sources here said. Sniffer dogs were pressed to help the police find some clue in the gruesome murder, which the police might have been committed by a jilted lover.

“The killer may have been known to the researcher. He may have turned violent after being spurned,” a senior police official said. The body of the research scholar, a resident of Delhi, was recovered inside the laboratory on the campus of Dayalbagh Education Institute, a deemed university,  on Friday evening. Police suspect that the scholar was raped before being killed.

The body bore scores of stab wounds inflicted by a surgical knife.
Thousands of students and ordinary people took to the streets on Saturday in protest against the killing and demanded that the police must ensure safety of the girls. The students boycotted their classes and also demonstrated before the New Agra police station. The cops had to use force to disperse the crowd, which threatened to turn violent.
