New Delhi, Oct 3 (UNI) To the delight of the Delhi Police, which had been groping for clues for the last four days in connection with the killing of journalist Saumya Vishwanathan, a person today approached it claiming he had ''apparently heard some sound on the fateful day''.

''A passerby, claiming that he had heard some sound apparently when Saumya Vishwanathan's car hit the road divider on Nelson Mandela Road that day, approached us saying he was near the spot around 0330 hrs when the 'accident' took place,'' said a senior police official.

''He said though he turned to look at the direction of the sound, he did not stop, and added that it could be that of a bullet.'' Declining to disclose anything further ''till proper investigations were done'', the official said it might hamper investigations.

''We appeal to the people to share with us any information they have regarding the journalist's death.'' Soumya, who worked with the production department of news channel 'Headlines Today' was found dead under mysterious circumstances in her white car on Nelson Mandela Road on September 30, while returning to her Vasant Kunj home from work.

Meanwhile, investigations so far had revealed that the blue paint mark on her white car was ''most likely'' from the signboard at the accident site.

''The footage from the close circuit television camera (CCTV) installed in the parking area of her office has also led us nowhere, as it showed her getting down from her office stairs and reaching the parking bay where she paid some balance to a coffee vendor and then reached her car and left after wiping her windscreen,'' the official added.
