Three days after Vijay Kumar, a resident of Samachar Apartments, Mayur Vihar Phase -1 Extension, was murdered, the police claims to have made headway in the case.

The police arrested a 26-year-old woman who was a suspect in the crime. According to a senior police officer, the woman has confessed to the crime and said that she killed the elderly man to avenge sexual exploitation.

Earlier, residents of the apartment had told City Spidey that they were shown footage of the CCTV camera installed at gate number three of the apartment. The footage showed that a woman dressed in jeans and T-shirt, with her face covered by a scarf  and who was carrying a TV, exited the apartment from gate number three.

Sanket Upadhyay a resident of the apartment, said, “So far what we have heard are claims of a very serious nature. Let is wait for the police to file a charge sheet in the case.”

NP Radhakrishnan, president of the RWA, said, "CCTV camera installed at the gate helped the police solve the case".

Kumar was found dead in his flat number 129 on the third floor on July 20.
