NEW DELHI: A 25-year-old vegetable vendor has been arrested in connection with the murder of his brother-in-law.
Motilal Gupta of Jehangirpuri lodged a complaint on June 9, saying his son Rahul, 20, had gone missing from their house. Mr. Gupta had gone to his native village in Uttar Pradesh in April, but Rahul had stayed back to attend coaching classes. When Mr. Gupta returned on June 6, he discovered Rahul had been missing for almost a week. He told the police that he had received several ransom calls.
During the investigation, the police found that Mr. Gupta's son-in-law Vinod was not present in Delhi for a few days after May 31, the day Rahul had gone missing. Subjected to sustained interrogation, he purportedly confessed to having abducted and murdered Rahul. Vinod's relations with his wife soured as he was an alcoholic and used to beat her up. When he did not mend his ways, Mr. Gupta, along with his two sons, beat him up.
Vinod, who was looking for an opportunity to avenge the humiliation, learnt that Rahul was alone at home and hatched a conspiracy, along with his uncle Ram Naresh, to eliminate his brother-in-law.
