"Knife used by accused Sahil recovered by Delhi Police," said Ravi Kumar Singh, DCP Outer North.
The accused was arrested by the Delhi Police near Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh on March 29.
On Thursday, Delhi's Rohini Court extended police custody of Sahil, for the next three days.
He was produced at the residence of the judge after the expiry of two days of police custody on Thursday. He was produced at the judge's residence in the morning due to security reasons.
Duty Metropolitan Magistrate (MM) Nidhi Chitkara extended the custody of Sahil for three days after hearing the submissions of Delhi police.
A CCTV grab of the incident shows Sahil purportedly stabbing the girl multiple times with a knife. He continued to stab her even when she slumped to the ground. He kicked her and then took a concrete slab lying nearby and bludgeoned her head. All this while the footage showed people watching the events unfold and walking past without intervening. At one point a dog is seen approaching the spot.
