The deceased, identified as Amaan, 55 (name changed), of Basant Kunj Yojna Colony in Dubagga was found in a dry drain near Amrapali Hospital in the area on December 19. After having ascertained the identity of the victim, police sent the body for autopsy, which indicated strangulation and drugging.

“We grilled the stepdaughter, who confessed to her crime and disclosed that Amaan was sexually exploiting her and had attempted rape in the night on December 17 when she was all alone at the house.
