"During investigation, we learned that on the day of Samad's death his mobile phone had been snatched at Vivek Vihar Railway Station," Deputy Commissioner of Police (Railway) Dinesh Kumar Gupta said.

The spot of the crime has no CCTV coverage. The police questioned locals, including criminals, during which one Deepu was apprehended, he said. Deepu confessed to the crime and mentioned the role of three others, police said.

A heated argument broke out between them, following which the accused stabbed Samad on his thigh, neck and face. They robbed him and placed his body on the railway track to make it look like an accident, the DCP said. Later, his two associates Pradeep and Deepak were arrested and their juvenile friend was apprehended, Gupta added.
