NEW DELHI: Security guard Rakesh, the main conspirator, had wanted the accused – including his son – only to commit dacoity at his employer's house.
However, his son Anuj had other sinister plans: that of finishing of the Jindal family as well as his father.
Police said that having worked for the Jindal's for the 15 years, Rakesh was well aware that the family used to store large amounts of cash and jewellery in their house.
During Raksha Bandhan in August, Rakesh visited his village at Baghpat and hatched a plan with his relatives, including son Anuj and son-in-law Vikas to rob the Jindals.
Police sources told Millennium Post that Rakesh had told the accused only to commit dacoity in the house and not to murder anyone.
Initially, Vikas and Anuj assured Rakesh that they will not kill anyone.
However, on their way to Delhi, the duo told their associates to be prepared to kill the family.
After gaining entry to the house, Rakesh allegedly stood at the gate to alert the accused in case he saw any outsiders.
Sources said that after murdering the women in the house, Anuj told Vikas that his father might rat them out to the police for murdering the Jindal family.
Fearing that his father-in-law might spill the beans if interrogated by police, Vikas slit his Rakesh's throat and killed him as well.
Subsequently, around 4 am, the seven persons involved in the murder-cum-dacoity fled the scene on foot.
They assembled at a park near GTB Hospital, and distributed the loot among themselves, which worked out to around Rs 2 lakh for each person.
The accused then kept their mobile phones switched off till the next day.
