The report added Malik’s childhood friend, named Salman, was his business partner and had moved to Malik’s flat around three months ago. A police officer conducting the probe said Malik’s landlord in his statement told the police that the flat was locked from outside and both the deceased and Salman were not seen since Friday. Moreover, their mobile phones were also switched off. The Police said that Salman was their prime suspect as he is missing.
On Saturday, the landlord saw Malik’s scooter was near a drain near the building and became suspicious after which he went to his flat to check if he had returned. When he went near the flat, he discovered a foul smell coming from inside. Later, Malik’s family members broke open the flat’s main door and found his body stuffed in the bed box and blood was spilled in the room.
Soon after, Burari police station authorities were informed about the murder, who reached the spot and sent Malik’s body to a government-run hospital for post-mortem examination and also collected evidence from the flat. During the preliminary enquiry, Malik’s family members told the police that on Friday he had informed his brother-in-law about receiving a payment of Rs 2.5 lakh.
