Greater Noida: A 45-year-old woman has been arrested by police for allegedly getting her 20-year-old son murdered by contract killers, after he objected to the woman's practice of certain rituals and her alleged relationship with an occultist in Luharli village in Dadri, said police.
Police, on Friday, arrested five persons, including the occultist, the woman and her son-in-law for the murder.

The deal for murder was made for Rs 35, 000.
'The boy often fought with his mother whenever the occultist visited their house,' said Nishank Sharma, Circle Officer, Dadri.
