Jamia student found dead inside his car in Delhi's Sarojini Nagar area; family of deceased suspects foul play
A 22-year-old student of Jamia Millia Islamia University, who was also a national-level hockey player, was found dead inside his car in south Delhi's Sarojini Nagar locality on Tuesday.

According to the Delhi Police, the deceased, identified as Rizwan Khan, was a resident of West Delhi's Subhash Nagar, and was pursuing a BA programme (second year) at the Jamia University.

As per the police investigation, Rizwan's lifeless body was discovered around 10.30 am in his car parked near his female friend's residence at Sarojini Nagar. His body also bears a gunshot wound on the right temple.

While cops have said that prima facie the case appears to be of suicide, however, the family of the deceased has raised suspicion of foul play in connection with the incident. No suicide note has been recovered so far, the police said.

"Police found Rizwan Khan's body in a pool of blood inside a white Swift. A country-made pistol was found in his right hand, with a bullet injury on the right temple," Romil Baaniya, DCP from south Delhi said.

Rizwan's elder brother Riyazuddin, who is a car dealer, said that Rizwan was carrying Rs 2 lakh in cash for a client on Monday. "He left in the car but didn't return till 10 pm. When we called, a woman picked up but did not give clarity on Rizwan's whereabouts," he said.

He further added, "The woman who picked up the phone said Rizwan had left the bag full of cash with her, and that she would hand it over to police. Around 7.15 am, the woman's father called us back and gave us his home address. My father and uncle went to take the bag. That's when they discovered Rizwan's car in the parking lot. His body was on the driver's seat, with the seat reclined."

On the other hand, the woman's family has yet not responded on the incident. Rizwan's father Sharif Khan said, "If they had kept us in the loop, my son would be alive today."

"We think he was killed and then the body was kept in the car afterwards as there were no bloodstains inside," Shareef Khan added further.

Police said that the Rizwan's female friend was out of town for attending a sports event, and her cousin had picked up the calls from Rizwan's family.

"We are trying to ascertain why he came to the woman's house if she was not in town. Her family told us they knew of the boy through their daughter," informed an officer.
