Radhika lay bleeding on the ramp, and her friends who were accompanying her fled the scene.
A passerby, Ajit Singh, made a call to the police. "I was on the escalator when I heard a loud noise. A boy who claimed to be the girl's friend stood near her. I asked the friend to help me take her down from the foot-overbridge, but he did not budge," said Singh.
A constable, Sanoj Singh, who received the police control room call at 10.20 am, rushed to her help and took her in an auto-rickshaw to Safdarjung Hospital where she was declared dead on arrival.
"There was no one near her. Everyone decided to be mute spectators. It was Constable Sanoj Singh who rushed her to hospital," said H G S Dhaliwal, DCP (South).
Singh, who was the only one to make a PCR call, said he also called the college authorities after he found the girl's identity card in her bag. "Till the time the constable came, I kept persuading people to take her to hospital, her friends including two girls, just vanished from the scene," said Singh (31), a private detective.
Aditya, one of her friends accompanying her, was picked by police for questioning from his home in West Delhi.
"No one was willing to come with me to the hospital," said Constable Sanoj Singh.
Police have found more than 2,500 SMS in her mobile phone. "We are analyzing the call details," an officer said.
Police said the assailant systematically chose the time and place. "He knew it was a crowded place and the chances of him being caught were rare. Initially people thought that the sound was that of a mobile phone burst," said the officer.
Police said they were questioning Aditya to find more leads into the case. Her classmates were also being questioned.
"My sister did not have enmity with anyone. Like every other day, she left home for college around 9 am today. She had a bright career ahead," said Vipin Tanwar, her younger brother.
"The family has told us about a man who had been troubling her. But they have not been able to identify her," the officer said.
