Noida: Two Arrested in Connection with Murder of Minor Son of Greater Noida Trader, Unraveling a Tragic Tale

In a distressing turn of events, the Greater Noida community has been shaken by the tragic murder of sixteen-year-old Vaibhav Singhal, son of local businessman Aruj Singhal. Vaibhav went missing on January 30, prompting a frantic search by his family and an ensuing investigation by the authorities.

The case took a grim turn when it was revealed that Vaibhav had been allegedly murdered by his own friends, identified as 19-year-old Maz Pathan and a 15-year-old minor whose name has been withheld to protect his identity. The motive behind this heinous act was reportedly linked to personal photos Vaibhav possessed, sparking a confrontation that led to his untimely demise.

After days of intense manual surveillance and intelligence gathering, the local police managed to apprehend the suspects. The arrest came after a dramatic gunfight during which Maz Pathan sustained a gunshot wound to the leg. Both suspects have since been taken into custody, shedding light on the chilling details of Vaibhav’s disappearance and subsequent murder.

According to sources close to the investigation, Maz Pathan allegedly lured Vaibhav to a local park under the guise of deleting the aforementioned photos. However, what ensued was a fatal altercation that resulted in Vaibhav being strangled to death by Maz and his minor accomplice. Subsequently, they disposed of Vaibhav’s body in the Kherli canal, further complicating the investigation.

The community’s outrage over the perceived police inaction reached a boiling point, prompting protests and roadblocks as concerned citizens demanded swift justice for Vaibhav. Traders’ associations joined the chorus of voices calling for accountability, highlighting the urgency of the situation.

In the wake of these developments, Deputy Commissioner of Police SM Khan assured the public that the investigation was progressing diligently. Divers were dispatched to search the canal for Vaibhav’s remains, while evidence including Maz’s iPhone and a countrymade gun were recovered from the suspects.

As Maz Pathan receives medical treatment for his injuries and the minor suspect awaits proceedings before the Juvenile Justice Board, the Greater Noida community grapples with the sobering reality of a young life lost to senseless violence. The tragic saga serves as a stark reminder of the fragility of life and the importance of fostering a culture of empathy and accountability within our communities.
