Gehlot was arrested on February 14, while his father Virender Singh, cousins Naveen and Ashish and friends Lokesh and Amar were arrested three days later.
Police had said that five co-accused were arrested after their role in the murder was ascertained.
Police had initially said that Gehlot had confessed to killing Yadav because she was pressuring him for marriage.
In a twist in the case, police said Yadav was the wife of Sahil Gehlot and the couple got married in 2020.
According to a senior Delhi Police official, Yadav was opposing the marriage arranged by Gehlot’s family. He murdered Yadav as he could not convince him to go ahead with the marriage.
