Stepson's hand suspected in double murder

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: Investigations into the double murder at Najafgarh here on Sunday have revealed that the two women who were found shot dead were sisters. According to the police, the stepson of one of the victims and his cousin are suspected to be involved in the incident. According to the police, the suspects, Jaiveer, son of Dharambir, and his cousin, Harbeer, have been missing since yesterday and teams have been sent to trace and arrest them.

The police said Jaiveer was stepson of one of the victims, Veermati, who was second wife of Dharambir.

Dharambir, who owned a lot of property in Laxmi Vihar where the incident occurred, had died five years ago. Since then, Veermati and other members of the family were at loggerheads over the question of property sharing.

While Dharambir's son wanted to have complete ownership of the property, Veermati was not ready to relinquish her claim in the property. However, she was staying at her parents' place in Sonepat for the past couple of years. Yesterday, she came to Laxmi Vihar and an argument apparently broke out between her and Jaiveer leading to the incident. Jaiveer's cousin, Harbeer, was also present.

Meanwhile, the other victim, Rajbala, who also had a tattoo of the same name on her arm, was Veermati's sister. The police said they were trying to ascertain if she just happened to be there by chance or was also involved in the dispute. Further investigations in the case are on.
