Why were only women targetted: Cops hunt for answers
New Delhi: Twenty-four hours since the gruesome murder of five persons, four womem and one security guard in Shahdara, Delhi Police has not given a clean chit to anyone, including the family members and the acquaintances.
The cops believe that these clean murders could not take place without the hand of an insider.
Since one of the door was open from where the bodies have been found, police suspect murderer or murderers who were given a friendly entry by the women.
"Till now everybody is under scanner. We haven't given clean chit to anyone," said a senior police officer.
Considering the massive wealth of the Jindal joint family amounting several crores, the cops did not even rule out the property angle in the murders.
Police have questioned the family members, the close relatives of Jindals and the close friends in search of some clue regarding the murders.
Out of the four women, Urmila, 82, was bed ridden and her 56 -year-old daughter Sangeeta had recently undergone dialysis, while Nupur, 48, was incoherent with words.
Selective targeting of women where valuables were kept intact suggest the role of an insider who knew the condition of the women well. They tried to mislead investigators into robbery attempt gone wrong.
Moreover, it seems highly unlikely that a gang would dare to get inside a premises resided by a joint family of 40 members.
The perfection with which the five murders took place also indicates that the killer made sure that no alarm is raised and the victims get little time to react to a sudden attack.
The investigation has revealed that there were no permanent servants in the house who stayed back. Only one maid who worked as a cook worked in Jindal Oil Mills has been questioned by the police.
"It's an open case and we are probing all possible angles," said a senior officer.
