New Delhi [India]: The maternal uncle of Delhi girl Anjali, who died in the horrific hit-and-drag incident at Khanjawala on New Year’s night, on Wednesday said the deceased’s friend Nidhi is hatching conspiracy by claiming the victim was drunk on the day of the incident.
His response came against the backdrop of claims by Nidhi to the media on Tuesday that Anjali was drunk on the day of the incident. “Nidhi was hidden previously. Now she has come out after Anjali’s last rites. When the incident happened, did not she have the humanity to report it to the police or family? She was scared then. Is not she scared now?
This was Nidhi’s conspiracy,” Anjali’s maternal uncle said.
He said Anjali did not have a drinking habit and her friend is lying over the matter.
“My niece did not have a drinking habit. If she was drunk that night (when the incident happened) as per Nidhi’s claim then the postmortem report would have mentioned that. It means Nidhi is lying,” he said.
He demanded the death penalty for the five accused who were in the vehicle that hit and dragged Anjali.
“Section 302 IPC should be registered against five accused and they should be given the death penalty. Section 304 IPC should be registered against Nidhi. We will appeal this to the government,” Anjali’s maternal uncle said after meeting Sultanpuri Station House Officer (SHO).
