During the interrogation the woman claimed Vijaykumar and his two associates, who were about the same age as the victim, sexually exploited her and blackmailed her into continuing physical relationship with them, said sources privy to the investigation.
The accused visited Vijaykumar at his Samachar Apartment flat on July 20. They had a tea before the murder took place. She stabbed him multiple times with a kitchen knife in "anger and frustration" over her continued exploitation.
“After killing VijayKumar, the woman took the LED TV with her. She later dumped the LED tv in Najafgarh drain. She claimed that Vijaykumar use to blackmail her by saying the LED TV stores their naked videos,” said a source close to the investigation.
She claimed that she was blackmailed by the victim, who had threatened to defame her with a video clip he had shot with her, they said.
Vikaykumar was introduced to the accused as "Pradip" by a woman who told her that he could help her in getting a job.
In two years, the victim allegedly met the accused seven times at various places, including at Lodhi Colony government residence, they said. "The victim had called the accused at his flat at Samachar Apartment on July 20. She was seen in a CCTV footage coming to the apartment at 10 am, and two hours later she was seen going out carrying an LED television she had picked up from the victim's flat," the DCP said.
The officer, however, said that the claims of the accused that she was sexually exploited and blackmailed were under investigation.
Further investigation is on to verify the woman's claims and identify other persons she has accused of exploiting her.
