The Delhi Police will initiate action against its own men after it was found that they were colluding with Vikas Yadav, convicted for the murder of Nitish Katara.
An official report has found out that Vikas Yadav spent last Diwali at home without parole. According to All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) records, Vikas was missing from his hospital room on Diwali night in October 2011.
Call records indicate that the two constables, meant to be guarding Vikas, who is serving a life sentence, were not at AIIMs but in Chattarpur and Mehrauli in South Delhi.
Vikas, along with his cousin Vishal Yadav, was convicted in 2008 for kidnapping and murdering Nitish Katara, a close friend of his sister Bharti. The duo killed Nitish Katara, son of an Indian Administrative Service officer, on February 17, 2002, after abducting him from a marriage party in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad as they were opposed to his relationship with Bharti.
Vikas, the son of former MP, DP Yadav, along with his cousin Vishal and hired killer Sukhdev Pehalwan, are serving life terms in Delhi's Tihar Jail.
