Dwarka couple killed for refusing their girl's marriage with accused
New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Sunday solved the case of double murder reported in Dwarka district. An MBA graduate was arrested for killing husband-wife couple after they refused to marry their daughter with accused who was already married.
Police sources said that before the incident, the accused had destroyed the CCTV of the deceased's house. Police identified the accused as Vishal Singh, a native of Gwalior. On June 22, the husband and wife were murdered in Mohan Garden area. The deceased were identified as Hariballabh and his wife Shanti.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Dwarka) Anto Alphonse said that the scene of the crime was giving the impression of some robbery bid but the circumstances were indicating something mismatch. Deceased's' family, comprising of blind husband, his wife, one young daughter and one minor son, was staying on the third floor of the building. Vishal Singh was also staying with the deceased's family since the last 1-1/2 years," said DCP Alphonse.
The accused was following the police investigation with his presence at all times to 'help' the remaining grieving family members. He was asked to clarify his presence during the murder but he stated that he had gone outside of the flat for some job. After a few contradictions emerged, Vishal was interrogated at length. He confessed that he is the murderer. He had committed the crime with the help of a kitchen knife. He looted Rs 1,40,500 cash from the house which was later recovered. The team of special staff and Mohan Garden police station solved the case.
One more accused namely Santosh Rai, whom the accused Vishal handed over his bloodstained clothes for disposal, has also been arrested. "Deceased had a young daughter and Vishal Singh got attracted to the girl. He proposed to marry the girl but the deceased had called off the plan of marriage after they got the wind that Vishal was already married but did not declare it to them," police said.
The deceased planned to marry their daughter at the earliest to someone else which enraged the accused. He also got the information that the family has received huge cash from somewhere. He decided to eliminate the father & mother of the girl so that he can marry her later.
