Comparison with
Shraddha Walkar case

The accused Sahil Gehlot reportedly killed Nikki Yadav by strangling her and hiding her body in a fridge at a dhaba he owned. This murder drew comparisons with another murder case of Shraddha Walkar.

Nikki Yadav, like Shraddha Walkar, was stored in the refrigerator. Gehlot is believed to have kept Yadav’s body in the fridge for around 4 days. 

Stored in the fridge

Shraddha Walkar was chopped up by her boyfriend Aaftab Poonawala, and stored in the fridge. He went out for around 18 days to dispose of her body.
