Two held for killing roommate

New Delhi, Nov 25: Two men were arrested here for killing their roommate, who had stolen contact details of a woman with whom the accused engaged in surreptitious chats, police said Sunday.

Devender, 20, and Hevbi Lal, 24, both residents of Bihar, were arrested Saturday from central Delhi’s Kamla Market area for slitting their 24−year−old friend Rajpal’s throat before dumping his body at Ramlila Ground in central Delhi last Thursday, said Additional Commissioner of Police Devesh Chandra Shrivastava.

They killed Rajpal after inviting him for a liquor party, police said.

All three worked at separate card−printing units in the city, police said.
