After bodies of a 22-year-old Delhi University student and her uncle were found in two different parts of the city within a short span last week, no clear leads have emerged in the case. The woman’s death has been confirmed as murder but that of her uncle is yet to be investigated.

Suicide Angle

Mehrunissa, who was pursuing B.A. from Janaki Devi Memorial College, was found strangulated to death at the Inderpuri house where she lived with her 32-year-old uncle Mehendi Hasan. Hasan’s mutilated body was found on a track near Sarai Rohilla railway station a few hours before Mehrunissa. The police are probing whether he first murdered Mehrunissa and then jumped on the track, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Vijay Kumar.

The family hails from Amroha. Mehrunissa’s studies and Hasan’s coaching for competitive exams were what had brought them to the Capital. The police are, however, yet to zero in on the motive. The family first learnt about Hasan’s death on April 4. Upon reaching here, his brother and another of Mehrunissa’s uncles, Danish, identified the body. With keys recovered from his pocket, Mr. Danish went to the flat where Hasan and Mehrunissa lived.

Mr. Danish found Mehrunissa lying on a mattress. According to the police, there were strangulation and nail marks on her neck. According to the Railway Police, Hasan’s death appeared to be an accident but under the given circumstances, they transferred the investigation to the West District.

No Note Left Behind

The fact that Hasan had locked the room before leaving lends credence to the suicide-after-murder theory but he didn’t leave any suicide note.

Mr. Kumar said Hasan was an alcoholic and frustrated because he hadn’t been able to crack the civil services or any other competitive exams. He didn’t comment on whether there were frequent arguments between the uncle and the niece or any disagreement with the other family members.

‘Motive Unclear’

Another police officer said the probe was at a nascent stage and it was too early to comment on the motive. He did not rule out the possibility of the involvement of someone else.
