A woman and her small child were arrested for killing an elderly child with the help of her lover, who went missing after the murder, Modi Nagar police said on Friday.
SP Rural Iraj Raja said that a woman named Anjali on July 21 raised a missing report of her husband Anuj Kumar alias Samar (27) said that her husband went missing on July 18 around twelve o’clock
Later on August 3, Anjali’s brother told the police that the body of his brother-in-law Anuj was lying behind a shrine on Niwari Road.
After Anjali’s recovery, she lodged an FIR against her mother-in-law Krishna Devi and her younger son Abhishek, the SP said, adding that paramour Krishna Devendra was also named in the complaint because he helped them eliminate Anuj.
Following the information provided in the complaint, the police arrested Krishna and Abhishek and during the interrogation, Krishna confessed that he had an affair with Devendra.
When Anuj, who is an elder, found out about the relationship, he refused, and the mother could not agree with him, and planned to destroy him. The three finally killed him and he threw himself behind the shrine, the SP said.
Krishna and Abhishek were arrested on Friday near Raj talkies intersection. They have been sent to jail, they said.
Police are raiding the hideouts of Devendra, rural SP said they will be arrested soon.
