In a shocking incident reported from Delhi, a Flipkart delivery man was stabbed multiple times for delivering a mobile phone late. The 28 year delivery driver informed police he was only spared his life when promised the attackers that he would not go to the police.
The attackers Kamaldeep Kaur (30 years old) and brother Jitender Singh (32 years old) stabbed Keshav (delivery man) over a dozen times and also tried to choke him with a shoe lace.
Fearing that he would get murdered, Keshav pleaded with the two to spare his life. According to the police the duo only let go of Keshav when he convinced them he would not inform the police about the incident. The police investigator adds: “The siblings warned Keshav that they would kill him if he revealed their identities.’’
Police have seized the CCTV footage of the area which clearly highlights the brother and sisters actions “Keshav said he had delivered other products to the siblings on two previous occasions in the fortnight preceding the attack. On March 21, he went to the same address to deliver a cellphone worth Rs 11,000. But before that delivery, Keshav and the siblings were reportedly involved in a heated exchange on the phone about the timing of the delivery.’’
When he called Kamaldeep to confirm the address, she started calling him back asking him why he was getting delayed. Keshav also alleges that “when he reached the house, the siblings attacked him without warning.’’
As per M N Tiwari, deputy commissioner of police (outer Delhi): “Singh tired to strangle Keshav with a shoe lace. When he collapsed on the floor, the woman sat on his abdomen while her brother repeatedly stabbed him in his face, head and hands.
In order to wipe out all the evidence, the brother drove Keshav’s motorcycle and dumped it. The two-wheeler is still to be traced.
The police further added: “After dumping the motorcycle, the siblings loaded Keshav in their Eeco van and dumped him along an isolated stretch of road over a kilometre from their home. They also burnt his carry bag near a drain in Uttam Nagar.’’
A severely bleeding and wounded Keshav was found by the police. Initially he told the police that he had been attacked by three motorcycle-borne men. The police adds: “However, the evidence at the spot did not substantiate his claims. The blood on his clothes was dry and there was no blood at the spot he claimed he was attacked.”
The police had to guarantee Keshav his security which is when he broke down and narrated his ordeal. While the brother-sister duo denied their roles, the CCTV footage scanned by the police confirmed their role in the assault.
