Woman kills paramour for eyeing her daughter
A woman and her brother were arrested for allegedly killing her paramour as he wanted to develop a relationship with her daughter, police said on Wednesday. The woman – who is in her 30s – and her brother Rakesh, 24, were arrested on Tuesday from west Delhi’s Uttam Nagar for killing a 35-year-old driver working with Delhi Jal board. Inder’s body was found by a passer-by in a suitcase wrapped with a quilt in west Delhi’s Bindapur on 6 January night. His throat had been slit by a sharp weapon. Mobile records of the deceased provided a clue to investigators as there were frequent calls between the victim and the woman. She confessed to the murder and told investigators that the deceased had helped her financially on several occasions. ‘The deceased developed a physical relationship with the woman. Then Inder started eyeing her daughter. When he did not desist after warnings to stay away, he was killed,’ said Anil Kumar Ojha, additional commissioner of police.
