According to the Noida police, Yadav, accused in 17 other criminal cases registered against him in Noida and Ghaziabad, confessed that he and his three other accomplices Anil, Ashok and Mukesh killed Sheeba Thomas, a former airhostess with Virgin Atlantic, late Tuesday when she tried to fend off their attempt to rob her in Sector-31.
