New Delhi: Delhi police has filed an “untraced” report before a city court after failing to make a breakthrough in the 2011 murder of student Shobhit Modi, which took place in Vasant Kunj.
As per the report, the police have investigated the case from all angles, but have not been able to arrest the “real culprit” or establish a “motive”.
Modi, a second-year student at Manav Rachna University in Faridabad and a former student of DPS RK Puram, was stabbed to death near his home in Vasant Kunj on May 5, 2011, when he was returning from the DLF Promenade Mall.
According to police sources, the crime branch had requested the city court that the case be closed. “However, they said that if they get any new clues, they will re-open the investigation,” police sources said.
The deceased was found at gate No 3 in a pool of blood by a security guard. One of Modi’s friends, who called on his mobile phone, discovered that he had been stabbed. He was rushed to Fortis Hospital, Vasant Kunj by his family, but was declared brought dead by doctors.
Once the police began the investigation, his family told them they suspected the role of the family of Modi’s girlfriend. His murder had left a trail of unanswered questions after the police found that cash and other valuables were untouched.
