New Delhi, 16 September
Four persons, including a woman, were arrested by the Delhi Police for their alleged involvement in a murder case in Gokalpuri area of north-east Delhi.
According to police, the accused have been identified as Rajbir (25), Purushotam (28), Dinesh (20) and the woman Sangita (20).
Additional Commissioner of Police, Crime, Ravinder Kumar said, last week police got a PCR call that a body tied with hands is lying at the office of Amazon Distributors India Pvt Ltd, near Victoria Public School, Brijpuri, in the Capital. The body was later identified as of Mukti Paswan, a resident of Madhepura in Bihar, who was employed as security guard of Amazon Distributors India Pvt. Ltd.
"During the investigation it was found that a large steel chest kept for safe custody of cash was broken and Rs 10 lakh was found missing.
On the basis of local intelligence and technical surveillance it came out that a few persons involved in the crime are planning to flee from Delhi and if raid is conducted immediately they can be apprehended," said Yadav.
"During interrogation, the accused confessed to have committed this murder and dacoity with the intention to become super rich overnight as they were inspired from the movie, "Bombay to Goa" which they had watched just before planning this crime.
Accused, Dinesh had earlier worked in the Logistics wing of this distributor firm. He was aware that cash collection of the company is kept in the safe on the second floor of the warehouse. He shared the idea of looting this cash with his neighbour Rajbeer," the officer added. Subsequently, Rajbeer, his wife Sangeeta and Dinesh hatched the conspiracy to loot this cash. For having adequate manpower to accomplish their plan, Rajbeer’s brother-in-law Purshotam was included in the plan since he had links with the criminals operating in Uttar Pradesh.
All four contacted the criminals of UP, hired them and they planned foolproof execution of this crime.
Along with these hired criminals, they scaled the high walls and reached the roof of third floor. The guard on the roof resisted their intrusion and in the process, he was killed by the accused.
