New Delhi, Feb. 10 (Delhi Crown): A husband-wife duo has been arrested for allegedly murdering a 26-year-old youth in Pandwala Kalan village falling under Dwarka Police district, said a cop posted at Jaffarpur Police Station on Thursday.
The murder took place on the intervening night of Feb. 7-8.
The deceased has been identified Sonu (26), a resident of Pandwala Kalan village and permanent resident of Farrukhabad UP. He used to work as a labourer, while the accused have been identified as Daulat Ram (33) and his wife Guddo Devi (28), both residents of Hansnagar Colony and permanent residents of district Hathras in Uttar Pradesh. Both also worked as labourers.
The dead body of the deceased was found inside a drain near Sushil International School, Pandwala Kalan-Ghummanhera Road, on Tuesday morning. The body was wrapped in a jute bag.
On investigation, the police found that a couple had suddenly gone missing along with their children from Hansnagar Colony. After much efforts the police managed to nab the couple – Daulat Ram and his wife Guddo.
It was also gathered by the police that Sonu had illicit relations with Guddo and pressurised her to elope with him, to which the latter refused.
Sonu was habitual to drinking alcohol. On the intervening night of Feb. 7-8, while carrying a country-made pistol Sonu entered into the house of Daulat Ram and Guddo while they were sleeping along with their children.
He pressurised Guddo to elope with him. Daulat Ram woke up and soon a scuffle broke between the two.
Daulat Ram snatched the pistol from Sonu and during the fight a shot was fired from close proximity hitting Sonu, after which he collapsed.
Thereafter, both husband and wife wrapped the dead body with a “Jute Bag” and dumped it into the drain, about a one-kilometre from their house.
Then they burned their blood-stained clothes. They also dumped the country-made pistol, live cartridges and the mobile phone of deceased in another drain about one km in opposite direction.
The country-made pistol, mobile phone of deceased and two live cartridges were recovered from the drain after extensive exercise using powerful magnet and divers, said the cop at Jaffarpur Kalan Police Station.
