Bharatiya Janata Party New Delhi, Mar 11 (ANI): College students and residents blocked roads in the capital on Friday in protest over the murder of 21-year-old Delhi University student Radhika Tanwar.

Upset over alleged police inaction, the residents blocked the Outer Ring Road in Naraina in West Delhi this morning.

The Bharatiya Janata Party’s student wing Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has called for a shutdown in the Delhi University campus today to protest the incident and demand more security for students.

Meanwhile, reports claim that the Delhi Police have detained a youth from Radhika’s neighbourhood in Naraina village, who is considered the prime suspect.

He is said to have been stalking Radhika and was once slapped by her.

The police believe that the arrested youth must have killed Radhika to ‘avenge’ the humiliation of being slapped by Radhika.

Another youth, also a resident of the Naraina village, was nabbed from Lodhi Colony. He is believed to have aided the prime suspect in killing Radhika.

The arrests were made after Delhi Police formed multiple special teams to nab the killer and deployed nearly 300 cops to search for the suspected killer.

Raids were conducted at various locations and the cops are said to be monitoring the movement of persons suspected in this case.

On Thursday, Radhika’s family said that a police sketch of the suspect matched the man who had stalked her for nearly three years.

Radhika was shot while walking across a pedestrian bridge by an unidentified person near South Delhi’s Ramlal Anand College on Tuesday morning, where she was enrolled.

The attacker managed to escape. (ANI)
