He also told her that he even had a wife and two children.  But she threatened him to turn him in and tell her parents. Scared, that being an Asian he will never be forgiven for such a crime in England, he held her head from the back and strangled her.  Next day her parents reported the case to the police who found her body on 16th .  A post-mortem examination revealed she had been raped and strangled.  On 17th Hannah's mobile phone and green satchel-type handbag were recovered.  Meanwhile, two days after Hannah's body was found, Maninder Pal Singh Kohli fled the country by begging money from his father-in-law to visit his dying mother.  He landed in New Delhi from where his younger brother Ishtpreet, an Indian police constable, drove him to the family home in Mohali.

The two other accused were produced before a juvenile court.  The police recovered a mobile phone in possession of the suspects which was robbed from the victim.
  34. 34. The incident led to an uproar in Parliament with Advani saying death penalty for such crimes should be seriously considered, provided there was a consensus.  Students also took a stand and boycotted their examinations to register their protest against the tardiness of the Delhi police and the apathy of the college authorities towards tighter security measures.  The court directed that Rahul should be medically examined before and after he was remanded to police custody at the Lady Hardinge Hospital.  DNA test proved that the semen sample recovered from the victim's sanitary pad matched that of prime accused, Rahul. ACTIONS TAKEN :-  Finally on 17th Jan 2005, two years after the alleged crime, the suspects were both sentenced to life being minors as a deterrent for future offenders.  But after 4 yrs of their conviction, Justice Juvenile Act grounded under which “a juvenile convict can be kept in the home for a maximum period of three years”.  Resultantly on September 3, 2005 the Juvenile Justice Board convicted the minors till they attain the age of 18.
