In a repeat of the gruesome Nithari rape and killings, a 20-year-old man was arrested for the rape and murder of a toddler in Gurugram. He had raped and killed eight minor girls earlier as well, he told the police.
The police said the accused Sunil confessed that he abducted the girls after enticing them with chocolates. He raped them and then tortured them to death. Revealing the gruesome details, cops said he would first break one of the legs of the victim with a brick and it strangely “aroused him.” Later he would murder them with the same brutality.
Being a vagabond with no mobile phone, it was always easy for Sunil to prey on unaccompanied children and go scot-free, officials said.
“He slept anywhere he could and ate at bhandaras. However, he always had an eye on children who were alone. He told us all that he wanted was tasty food at bhandaras and young girls to satisfy his lust,” Time of India quoted a police officer as saying.
It has come to light that the first of his victims was a four-year-old girl whom he allegedly kidnapped from a temple in Gurugram in 2016. Her body was later found in the bushes behind Omaxe Mall on Sohna Road.
In January 2017, a five-year-old’s rotting body was found with head and leg injuries. He has confessed to raping and killing four other minors in Delhi, one in Jhansi and another in Gwalior.
He was finally arrested after a manhunt was launched following the gruesome rape and murder on November 13 this year. A three-year-old girl was found with bricks on her body and a 10cm-long wooden stick inserted in her private parts.
