Former gangster used wife as honeytrap in murders

The probe into two separate instances of murder of citizens from Delhi has revealed that former gangster and prime accused Vijay Palande used his model wife Simran Sood as a ‘honeytrap’ for the crimes for usurping properties of the victims, police said.

“It has now emerged that Simran Sood is not Vijay Palande’s friend but his wife. They married in 1998 or 1999. After the marriage, Palande was involved in a crime and was behind bars for a few years. After he was freed, he started using his wife to trap victims for money and property,” said a crime branch official.

Palande, formerly a gangster working for underworld don Santosh Shetty, along with his aides Dhananjay Shinde and Manoj Gajkosh, was apprehended by crime branch officials on April 11 in connection with the April 7 murder of Delhi-based businessman Arunkumar Tikku (67). Palande had befriended the victim’s actor son Anuj Tikku with a motive to acquire his plush apartment in upscale Lokhandwala Complex, police had said.
