To grab property, woman and lover bump off her parents
New Delhi: To grab the parental property, a woman with her paramour hatched the dramatic plot to kill her parents by smothering them to death in Outer Delhi's Paschim Vihar area. Police have found that the daughter was the main conspirator who mixed sleeping pills in their parent's tea and later killed them with her lover.
An investigator told this newspaper that the daughter during interrogation showed no remorse for killing her parents. "The duo hatched the plan to grab a property owned by the elderly couple at Deepak Vihar's Nilothi extension. Roughly the cost of property estimated at Rs 50 lakh," police said.
Police identified the accused as Davinder Kaur alias Sonia (mastermind) and Prince Dixit alias Vikram. The investigation agency said that the accused wanted to sell the property so they have contacted few property dealers. "They wanted to flee Delhi at the earliest," police said. The case came to the limelight on March 8 around 4.30 pm after information was received to police that a female body was found in the drain near village Sayed in Nangloi. "Apparently, it seemed that the deceased was murdered by someone and the dead body was thrown into the drain," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer) Seju P Kuruvilla.
During the investigation, the body was identified as that of Jageer Kaur (47). On further enquiry, it was found that her husband Gurmeet Singh was also missing. During the search on March 9, a male body was found by the police team which was later identified as Gurmeet Singh. "During questioning, the statements of Davinder Kaur were found to be suspicious and contradictory with the facts and circumstances. After sustained interrogation, she finally revealed that she herself was involved in the murder of her parents," said the DCP.
Davinder told police that she had left her husband and was in the relationship with Prince Dixit for the last one year. "Davinder and Dixit wanted to grab the property at Deepak Vihar in Nilothi extension so the duo hatched a conspiracy to kill her parents and grab the property," the officer said. Jageer Kaur left for Jalandhar on February 10.
"On February 21, the accused intoxicated her father by mixing sleeping pills in his tea. At night, Dixit came to the house with two more people and smothered Gurmeet Singh to death. "They then packed the body in a suitcase and threw it in a drain near Sayed Nangloi village," he added. Dixit fled to Lucknow the next morning along with the two other accused, the officer said.
Dixit was informed a day before that Jageer Kaur would return Delhi from Punjab on March 2. "He came back to Delhi with one of his friends. The same day, her daughter gave sleeping pills to her mother and once she fell asleep, Kaur was smothered to death by the accused duo who then disposed of the body in the same drain after stuffing it inside a suitcase," Kuruvilla said adding that Gurmeet was a carpenter by profession.
