NEW DELHI: As the gory of the Nikki Yadav murder deepens it is learnt that the murder did not happen furtively in the dead of night, but in broad daylight at a public place.
The accused, Sahil Gehlot, has revealed that he drove around with his lover Nikki Yadav for hours on the night of February 9. He then killed her in a parking lot near Nigambodh Ghat, in the heart of the national capital, between 8.30-9 am the following day, reported news agency ANI citing sources privy to the investigation.

On Wednesday, police retrieved footage from CCTV cameras that showed 23-year-old Nikki in her rented house hours before she was allegedly killed by Sahil.
