After the gory Nithari case in Noida, Delhi seems to be in a similar loop with a 24-year-old man being arrested for assaulting and murdering a six-year-old girl in Begampur in Northwest Delhi on July 14. The accused has confessed to the killing of 15 other children – both girls and boys – since 2009.



The perpetrator, Ravinder Kumar, was booked on Friday. According to his statement to the police, he decoyed the children with money or chocolates and later on, took them to isolated places, sexually assaulted them, and strangulated them to death. He used to dump the bodies in drains or fields or used to bury them.

The police are on a trail of unearthing similar incidents in Noida, Aligarh, and Badaun in Uttar Pradesh. As of now, the police has cracked upon similar attempts made by the accused in Kanjhawala, Samaipur Badli, Mundka, and Vijay Vihar, and two such cases in Begampur.

The police bumped into Kumar’s involvement in the case when they were probing into the case of a 6-year-old girl who was missing. An FIR with charges of abduction was filed with the police. “The body was spotted in the third floor of a building which was under construction. The building was at a distance of 50m from the girl’s house,” DCP (outer) Vikramjit Singh told Times of India.

The girl was raped and strangled to death. An FIR under IPC sections of rape, murder, sodomy, sexual assault, and destruction of evidence and Section 6 was slammed against the accused.

The police ran into some paper and a driving license belonging to one Sunny. Sunny was immediately interrogated by the police. According to Sunny, his friend Ravinder, his brother, and a third friend assaulted him a few days ago and took away his licence, cash and bike.

On collating the clues, the police got an inkling of Kumar’s involvement in both the cases – six-year-old girl abduction case and Sunny’s case.

Kumar had been booked in a similar case last year, wherein he assaulted a minor boy in Begampur; however, he was later released on bail, according to a TOI report. Notwithstanding the pressure, he broke down and confessed to killing and assaulting other minors during the police interrogation.

Kumar’s crime has rekindled the horror exuded by the Nithari case (2005-2006), where several young girls were assaulted, abducted, and murdered by Surinder Koli – a helper in a businessman’s house in Noida. Koli was awarded the death sentence, which was later on commuted to life imprisonment.

According to the police, a special team has been deputed to investigate the case. He has confessed to targeting 15 children and the team will be probing all the said cases, DCP Singh said.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
