On 5th May, at 9.10pm Shobhit Modi calls up home in C-6 Vasant Kunj, says he’ll return in 30 mins from DLF Promenade Mall. At 9.50pm Guard at C-5 Vasant Kunj spots Shobhit stumble towards colony gate, thinks he is drunk. When he slumps on the car barrier, guard finds him bleeding from multiple stab wounds. A friend rings up Shobhit at 9.55 pm & Guard tells caller about stabbing. The caller soon informs Shobit’s family. At 10.00 pm Modi family takes him to the hospital, where he is declared dead.

Shobhit was crying for help & a security guard rushed to his aid. But unfortunately the security guard could not operate Shobhit’s iPhone to inform his family. A crucial 20 minutes of Shobit’s life were waste in all this. By the time Modi’s family was contacted and he was rushed to Fortis Hospital, he was already dead.

A large number of friends of the victim as well as the parents of his girl friend have been questioned by the police so far. But the movement and conduct of this particular acquaintance had been under the scanner for quite some time, an officer said.

The boy's family has earlier even alleged that his girl friend's relatives had threatened Shobhit some time ago over their relationship. The girl's family, however, denied this. Shobhit was said to have met the girl along with some other friends at a mall in Vasant Kunj some time before he was murdered.

The police reconstructed the scene of crime in Vasant Kunj and looked into the Shobhit's Facebook page for clues. They also probed the angle of road rage.

He was killed by a sharp weapon and according to Police there are four marks of knife on Shobhit's Stomach. It is not a case of Looting because police collected the I-pod, Watch and Wallet of Shobhit with full of money near his body and this had led the police to arrive at the conclusion that robbery was not the motive behind the murder.

Delhi Police Commissioner BK Gupta denied any breakthrough in the case, but senior police officers said the detained person is the main suspect. “We have questioned over 100 local criminals. The detained person was one of them and is the prime suspect as he had left for Kanpur a day after Shobhit was murdered,” said a senior police officer requesting anonymity.
