Accused reveal gory details of how they killed Jindal family
NEW DELHI: In the course of his interrogation, the accused told police that one of their victims, Anjali Jindal, had witnessed the murder of her mother and sister, before she herself was stabbed to death.
Initially, Anjali managed to hide herself between two cupboards in the room where her family was killed.
However, she was soon found and stabbed brutally in the neck, the accused told police.
Police said they are also probing the role of a woman, who may have been involved in hatching the plan.
After probing the case from the property angle dispute, DCP (Crime Branch) Dr G Ramgopal Naik – who led the investigation team – focused on the angle at which the throats of the victims were slit.
This turned out to be a crucial lead, as one of the accused Vikas was found to have worked as sweeper in various departments of Delhi's GTB Hospital.
In his time at the hospital's mortuary, Vikas gained knowledge about the vital parts of the human body where maximum damage could be done by slashing.
Vikas put this knowledge to use to successfully murder the victims by slitting their throats.
After the accused forcibly entered the Jindal residence, they first killed Nupur Jindal.
They then entered the room where 82-year-old Urmila Jindal and 56-year-old Sangeeta Gupta were sleeping, and killed them by slitting their throats.
Frightened, Anjali managed to hide herself for a while, but was soon killed.
After committing the crime, all the accused started going to their day jobs, so as to avoid any suspicion.
More than 50 police personnel had worked on the case and raid over 15 locations all across Delhi-NCR and its neighbouring states.
