Delhi: Theft reported at Kanjhawala accident victim`s house

The family of Kanjhawala case victim Anjali Singh has alleged that someone broke into their house in Karan Vihar and stole an LED TV, among other things, while they were away, police said on Monday.

Singh`s family members, who have been staying with a relative since her death, were informed about the theft by their neighbours on Monday morning, they said.

They expressed apprehension that Nidhi, who was riding pillion on Singh`s scooter at the time of the accident, and the accused in the case could be behind the theft.

Singh was killed in the early hours of the New Year after her scooter was hit by a car which dragged her for 12 km from Sultanpuri to Kanjhawala. Nidhi fell to the side and fled the spot after the accident because she was “scared”.

Singh`s family reported the theft at Aman Vihar police station at 8:30 am. A police team immediately reached the spot and found the lock on the door of the house broken, the police said.
