An army colonel based at a training facility in Shimla was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly raping the daughter of a junior colleague, police said.

The 21-year-old woman’s father is a lieutenant colonel at the Army Training Command (ARTRAC).

The lieutenant colonel took his daughter to the Sadar Police station on Tuesday evening, where he said that she had been raped. The woman was unconscious at that time.

Police took her to the Deen Dayal Upadhyay Regional Hospital, where she gained consciousness. She also accused the colonel of raping her.

The police detained the colonel on Tuesday but registered a case on Wednesday on the basis of the woman’s allegations.

85-yr-old rapes 4 girls, abuses 3 over 12 months in Hyd

Hyderabad: In a shocking incident, an 85-year-old man allegedly raped a class 7 student, a Dalit, by luring her with chocolates in Kushaiguda. The culprit, who was arrested on Wednesday, allegedly raped three other girls and sexually assaulted an equal number. Kushaiguda police said Satyanarayana, a retired railway employee, had abused six students, incidentally all from the same school, over the last 12 months.

Satyanarayana’s misdeeds came to light when SHE Teams sleuths of Rachakonda police commissionerate went to various schools and colleges to spread awareness about sexual abuse and reporting incidents to police. “The victim’s family members brought the issue to the notice of SHE Teams about the ordeal faced by the child. During inquiry, it came to light that the culprit had sexually abused six girls, including raping three,’’ Kushaiguda inspector K Chandrasekhar said. Most of the victims were either 12 years or less.

Though his exploits had been going on for several months, no one lodged a police complaint and this was the first time a case was registered.

Colonel held for raping Lt-Colonel’s daughter

Shimla: An Army Colonel was arrested on Wednesday over the alleged gang-rape of the daughter of a Lieutenant-Colonel posted at the Army Training Command — one of the seven commands of the Army which aims to improve effectiveness of training of the defence forces in the country.

The 21-year-old was allegedly gang-raped at the Colonel’s official residence here on Monday. The FIR was registered a day later. A friend of the officer, present in the house at the time of the crime, has also been accused in the case, but is yet to be arrested. Despite repeated attempts by TOI, there were no comments from the Army headquarters in Delhi.

Shimla SP Soumya Sambasivan confirmed an FIR was registered on the complaint of the survivor. The two men have been booked for gang rape after recording the survivor’s statement and examination. The survivor said that before the assault took place, the accused had on Nov 19 invited her along with her father to attend an event at Shimla’s Gaiety Theatre. The accused then took them out for dinner and suggested that the survivor live with his daughter in Mumbai to find her way into the modelling profession.

The next day, the accused called up the survivor and told her to send him her photos. Once she sent the photos, he asked her to come to his place to meet professionals from the modelling industry. However, when she went to his place, the Colonel forced her into a room, made her drink liquor and raped her.

Four more held in banker murder case

Uday Raj Singh (65) was stabbed to death and his wife was assaulted by a group of men who tried to steal a 400-year-old necklace from their home on March 25. Alert neighbours helped the police catch three persons — Madhusudhan (27), Sateesh (25) and Dileep Kumar (24) — when they were in the vicinity. The police have now arrested Abhishek (27), Sridhar P.S. (31), Amith Kumar (23) of Mysore and Kiran (28) of Hassan. The police said that Madhusudhan, a stock broker in Mysore, is the prime accused in the case. He was working as an assistant manager with a private bank in the city and moved back to his native Mysore two years ago, to start a stock brokering firm with two others.

Police sources said one of Madhusudhan’s partners cheated investors of several crores and was absconding. Madhusudhan was under pressure to return their investment. Abhishek, a colleague, told Madhusudan about Mr. Singh who was trying to sell an antique necklace. Police investigations have revealed that Abhishek and Madhusudhan had visited Mr. Singh a few times in the last one year, with the intention of buying the necklace.

“However, when Mr. Singh quoted Rs. 12 crore for the necklace, the duo decided to steal it and when they failed, they attacked him and his wife,” said a police official.

Necklace that brought death

The diamond necklace that brought killers to the doorstep of its owner, Uday Raj Singh, was stolen eight years ago when Mr. Singh, then a bank manager, had tried to sell it.

Mr. Singh had then said that the necklace was 400 years old and the diamonds were uncut. A man who had expressed interest in buying it had taken it and fled, but he was caught by the police and the necklace recovered.

The then investigating officer B.B. Ashok Kumar, now retired, had warned Mr. Singh to be cautious, and approach a jeweller if he wanted to sell the necklace.

After years, when Mr. Singh advertised that it was for sale, a group of seven people expressed interest in buying it. While three entered his house, four others kept watch outside. As soon as Mr. Singh handed it to the trio, who had come to his house on Tuesday discuss the deal, they murdered him and attacked his wife Susheela.

It later transpired that the gang had offered Rs. 7 crore for the necklace. “We showed the necklace to experts who estimated that it is worth about Rs. 40 lakh. The gang offered Rs. 7 crore and told Mr. Singh that they planned to sell it in the international market for Rs. 40 crore,” a senior police officer said.

Retired banker is murdered while trying to sell antique jewellery

Uday Raj Singh

A retired bank employee was on Tuesday stabbed to death and his wife sustained serious injuries during an attempt by a group of men to rob antique gold valuables from their home in Wilson Garden.

Uday Raj Singh died on the spot. His wife, Susheela, raised an alarm and neighbours and police chased and nabbed three suspects.

According to the police, Singh had retired as manager from the State Bank of Mysore. He is a relative of Sangram Singh, the former Assistant Commissioner of Police. Singh had some antique jewellery worth lakhs, which he was planning to sell. Many people knew about the jewellery, a relative said. Prospective customers had been approaching him for many months, said the police. Around 3.30 p.m. on Tuesday, three men called on him posing as prospective clients.

“After Singh showed them a photograph of the antique jewellery, they wanted to see the real jewellery. The moment he showed them a necklace studded with diamonds and other precious stones, the trio whipped out knives and other sharp weapons. They attacked the couple,” Kamal Pant, Additional Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) told reporters.

They bundled the jewellery in a bag and tried to escape via the terrace. But a neighbour, who heard Susheela’s screams, alerted the police.

Constables of Adugodi police station chased the men and caught them. Four others, who were standing guarding outside the house, escaped.

“As of now it looks like a murder for gain. We have recovered a bag containing the jewellery and the weapons used in the crime. We will wait until Susheela recuperates as she can throw more light on the crime,” Mr. Pant said.

 

TO RECOUP BIZ LOSSES, MBA GRAD MURDERED RETD BANKER

To recoup biz losses, MBA grad murdered retd banker

Madhusudhan, the main accused, hatched plot to save parents embarrassment of depositors queuing up

He wanted to save his parents the embarrassment of depositors queuing up at their doorstep following the business losses he had suffered. Instead, the MBA graduate and director of a multinational financial services firm has ended up in jail as main accused in the murder of retired bank manager Uday Raj Singh. Tempting fate: The eight-year saga of a Rs 15-cr heirloom
Seven persons were arrested by Adugodi police for the murder and attack on his wife, Susheela, at the couple’s house at Lakkasandra near Wilson Garden on Tuesday. Police say the motive was to steal the antique diamond necklace which Singh believed was valued at least Rs 18 crore, along with other gold jewellery and cash.
The key conspirator, Madhusudhan (27), is the son of a retired army officer, and has done MBA in finance from a private college in Mysore. Madhu’s father is retired army captain Nagendra, and the family resides at Hebbal in Mysore. Madhu was a director of Edelweiss Pvt Ltd at Saraswathupuram in Mysore. He had taken the firm as a franchise and was running the business.

Another MBA graduate and a BBM graduate are among the others arrested.

The arrested persons have confessed that they wanted to rob the necklace to solve their financial problems as they had sustained a setback in business. Police said they were hoping to make big money by selling the necklace in Rajasthan. The market value of the necklace, including the diamonds and gold, is around Rs 50 lakh, but since it is an antique piece, it is difficult to ascertain its value.
Also arrested are Satish (25), a resident of Srirangapattana in Mandya. The Class X passout was working as a lorry driver; Dilip Kumar (24), a resident of Lakshmikantha Nagar, Hebbal, who was working in a bulb factory in Mysore after completing Class X. The duo was arrested along with Madhu on the day of murder when they were trying to escape from the spot.

Based on their information, the cops arrested Abhishek alias Abhi (27) from Mysore, an ITI diploma-holder who was employed as branch manager in Madhu’s firm; Kiran (28), a resident of Hassan, who has studied up to Std VII. He was earlier arrested in a vehicle theft case and released on bail 10 months ago. According to the FIR, MBA graduate Sridhar PS (31) was working as a verifier in ICICI Bank in Mysore, while BBM-degree holder Amith Kumar alias Bittu (23) worked in a call centre and was unemployed at the time of the crime.
Police said Madhu was earlier working in HDFC bank as an assistant manager in Malleshwaram branch. After quitting his bank job, he, along with his friends Ramprasad and Sudharshan, took a franchise of Edelweiss , a Tokyo-based company. They dealt in commodities, foreign exchange, equity and derivatives. Ramprasad allegedly cheated them by running away with customers’ money and Madhu sustained more than Rs 1.2 crore losses. Cases have been booked against Ramprasad in Hospet, Tumkur and Doddaballapur.
Depositors started queuing up outside Madhu’s office and house demanding him their money. Madhu has said he sd through him got in touch with Ravindra. The latter introduced Madhu to Uday Raj Singh. Ravindra told them about the antique piece available for sale with Singh and told the duo that the necklace was worth Rs 18 crore.
Madhu and Abhishekh visited Singh’s house two-three times posing as customers. After the visits, the arrested changed their mind and hatched a plan to rob the necklace rather than purchase it. Police said their intension was to rob the necklace and sell it in Rajasthan or Mumbai at double the price. Madhu told police he wanted to return the money to his depositors, and share the rest with the others.
As per plan, Madhu, Abhishek and the others went to Singh’s house in two cars on March 25. While pretending to seal the deal, they attacked Singh, slit his throat with a knife and killed him. They also attacked his wife. They took away the necklace, other gold jewellery in the house and cash.
However, neighbours heard the couple’s cries for help. They chased the miscreants and also alerted the beat police. With the help of the public, police nabbed the trio. The team, headed by police inspectors Sudheer and Manoj Kumar, arrested all the seven. The police have also seized the cars used in the crime and a gold chain belonging to Susheela along with the antique necklace.
Meanwhile, the city police commissioner appreciated the timely response of the five cops — head constable Somashekaraiah, police constables Nanjundaswamy AR, Ramakrishne Gowda, Nagesh M, Manappa Eeti who caught the three accused at the spot and rewarded them with Rs 5,000 each. While Rs3,000 was given to three passersby who helped nab the accused.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (South), HS Revanna said, “We are yet to ascertain the exact value, but in the market, the necklace is valued at Rs 60 lakh.” Madhu has confessed that depositors were visiting his housed and it was embarrassing for his parents. He wanted to ensure his parents did not face disrepute in society so he hatched the plot, Revanna said.Ravindra, a senior citizen, has no role in the crime

RETD BANK MANAGER’S MURDER: POLICE NAB TWO MORE SUSPECTS

Unconfirmed reports suggest that two of the remaining four suspects who were absconding after brutally murdering retired bank manager Uday Raj Singh, 62, and gravely injuring his wife, Susheela, 57, have been nabbed. Three of their other accomplices who were arrested on Tuesday reportedly confessed to the crime to the Adugodi police.

Among the three suspects who were nabbed by passersby and the police on the day of the murder, one, identified as Madhu, is the son of a retired army captain currently residing in Mysore. Sources revealed that the men were otherwise unknown to each other and had come together when Abhishek – another main suspect – and Madhu began plotting elaborately to steal the necklace.It is further believed that some of the men are known anti-social elements who are wanted in a few kidnap and other petty cases. “The suspects hail from Mysore, Hassan, Arasikere, and surrounding districts. We are trying to ascertain exactly how they first came to contact Uday and Susheela. So far, five of the seven accused are in our custody, and we are confident of catching the other two very soon,” said an investigating police officer.

The arrested men have reportedly confessed to the police that they intended only to scare and rob the couple, without intending to injure them. They reportedly got cold feet and attacked Uday and Susheela when the couple resisted and began screaming while being robbed.

Sources also maintained that while the antique heirloom had been recovered from one of the men arrested on Tuesday, the other suspects who managed to escape also robbed Susheela of six gold bangles, two gold chains, and a pair of earrings that she had on her person.

In her statements to the police, Susheela reportedly said that two of the men pinned her down by sitting on her and wounded her before grabbing her jewellery and fleeing.

2 MBA graduates among 7 arrested

Police have cracked the sensational murder case of a retired banker recently at Adugodi by arresting seven men.

The suspects on March 25 barged into the house of Uday Raj Singh and attacked him and wife Susheela with sharp weapons before fleeing with an antique piece of diamond-studded necklace. Singh died instantaneously.

According to the police, three men who were nabbed soon after the murder while they were trying to flee with a box containing the jewellery have been identified as Madhu alias Madhusudan, 27, a native of Mysore; Satish, 25, a resident of Srirangapatna in Mandya district; and Dileep Kumar, 24.

On Friday evening, the police nabbed two more people who were part of the gang­ – Sridhar, 31, and Amith Kumar, 23, from their residence in Mysore.

Later that night, Kiran, 28, a resident of Hassan, and Abhishek, 27, a resident of Mysore, were picked up from a friend’s house in Tumkur.

By the end of the day, the seven-man gang was in custody, the police said.

The police said Madhu, an MBA graduate and son of an ex-army man, was working as an assistant manager at the HDFC Bank in Malleswaram. He later moved to Mysore and took up a job at the franchise of Edelweiss Private Limited, a prominent share market company.

Satish discontinued education after finishing his 10th standard and worked as a lorry driver. Dileep, who is also a 10th pass, was employed with a bulb factory in Mysore. Abhishek had completed his ITI diploma and was working as the head of the unit along with Madhu in Edelweis, Mysore. Kiran was earlier arrested for bike theft and was released 10 days ago.

Sridhar, an MBA graduate, was working with ICICI Bank in Mysore, and Amith Kumar, a BBM graduate, had a job at a call centre.

During the interrogation it came to light that Madhu, along with Ramprasad and others, purchased the franchise of Edelweiss Private Limited, but the company ran into loss and Ramprasad cheated Madhu of Rs 1.2 crore. He had also cheated other people of money and had been absconding for the past one and a half years. There are cases registered against Ramprasad in Hospet, Tumkur and other places, added police.

Huge debt

Madhu had run into deep debt and people who had invested in the company were constantly nagging him to return the money, while Ramprasad was absconding. Madhu did not know what to do and shared his problem with his friend Abhishek.

Later on, Abhishek introduced Madhu to Ravindra who told them about Uday Raj Singh, a retired State Bank of Mysore manager in Bangalore who was trying to sell an antique gold necklace.

Madhu and Abhishek gathered information about the antique piece made out of gold and diamond and valued at Rs 18 crore. They both planned to somehow buy the necklace and sell it at a higher price in Mumbai, which would help them settle their debts, said the police.

Madhu and Abhishek visited Singh’s house a couple of times posing as customers to buy the necklace and were negotiating the price with Singh. The duo informed the rest of their friends and conspired to steal the necklace by murdering Singh.

On March 25, all the seven of them went to Singh’s house in two cars at around 2 pm and started negotiating the deal. While they were talking business, they pulled out knives and other weapons, slit Singh’s throat and killed him brutally. They also slit Singh’s wife Susheela’s throat and grabbed the jewel and other gold ornaments which Susheela was wearing. But the screams of Susheela alerted the passersby and neighbours who found that something had gone wrong and informed the police constables who were posted at a nearby school. Amith, who was standing guard outside the house, alerted his friends to flee.

Sudhir S, inspector, Adugodi police station, said, “The police rushed to the spot, while the accused got petrified on seeing people gathered outside the house. They tried to flee by jumping off the compound wall on the rear side of the house. While three of them were nabbed by the police constables with the help of three passersby, the other four managed to escape.”

He added that the four absconding men were arrested based on the informationprovided by their three associates.

A senior police officer said the higher authorities had announced a cash prize for the constables and three people who put up a daring act in nabbing the suspects on the day of the murder

Mystery still shrouds life and ‘death’ of Dr Omana who killed her husband

Kannur: Omana Edadan, the absconding ophthalmologist from Payyannur, who is accused of brutally killing her lover 21 years ago, has reportedly died after falling from a building in the suburbs of Malaysia, though her identity is yet to be officially ascertained.

According to Thaliparamba DSP K V Venugopal, the Malaysian high commission has published in Malayalam newspapers the advertisement with photograph of an unidentified woman who died after falling from a building in Subang Jaya, at Selangor.”Ever since she had gone missing in 2001, after she got bail in the murder of her lover P Muraleedharan, a Payyannur-based contractor, there were rumours that she escaped to Malaysia using a fake passport. Her children have confirmed that she called them from that country just once in 2009,” he said. Moreover, her former husband and children said the photograph of the dead woman resembled Omana but this could be ascertained only through scientific examination, according to police.

Omana, who was running a clinic in Payyannur, made headlines after she was arrested in 1996 when she allegedly killed Muraleedharan by injecting poison in the retiring room of Ooty railway station on the night of July 11, 1996, and chopped the body into pieces with the precision of a surgeon and stuffed the same in a suitcase to throw it in a river.
However, the driver of the taxi she hired to go to Kodaikanal for the purpose grew suspicious and alerted the police, which resulted in her arrest.

On interrogation, she said she decided to kill her lover, who was already married, because she felt he was drifting away from her. Though the Ooty West police registered the case and filed the chargesheet on June 15, 1998, she got the trial process delayed by demanding the copies of the chargesheet and other documents in English or Malayalam.
Meanwhile, she managed to get bail on January 21, 2001 before the trial could begin, and nobody has heard of her since January 29, 2001.

The 64-year-old doctor, against whom the Interpol had issued a red corner notice in 2007, is still in the list of most wanted criminals from India. To ascertain the identity of the dead woman, Tamil Nadu police will have to go for the scientific examinations, including the DNA test

Police: Delhi bizman shot wife, cooked up attack tale
New Delhi: Restaurateur Pankaj Mehra, who had claimed an attack on his car by gunmen who shot his wife dead while grappling with him, now has cold-blooded murder on his plate.

Mehra’s PCR call about his wife being shot dead in the car near Rohini while they were on a long drive, had northwest Delhi cops in a tizzy. Policemen found a “shattered and shocked“ husband who claimed that financiers, from whom he had borrowed money , had bumped off his wife while trying to kill him.

Mehra remained busy through Wednesday with last rites of his wife Priya Mehra, 34. However, when the cops quizzed Mehra, they found his story unconvincing. Baffled and suspicious, cops decided to go old school and cross-examined him at length. Hours later, the story had turned completely .

What appeared to be a handiwork of contract killers, turned out to be coldblooded murder by Mehra, who wanted to get rid of his wife and his lenders in one stroke. As per the confession, Mehra, deep in debt, planned the murder last month so that he could live peacefully with his live-in partner.

Delhi: Man got spouse killed for his ‘first wife’in front of son; plot story

By: IANS || Updated: 26 Oct 2017 11:58 AM

New Delhi: In a surprising turn of events, a man was arrested here on Thursday for shooting dead his wife in the early hours of Wednesday, police said.

Priya Mehra, 34, died of two bullet injuries in a city hospital in the early hours of Wednesday.

He also told police that he was unable to pay back the money borrowed from a man and claimed the lender was behind the murder.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Milind Mahadeo Dumbere on Thursday told IANS that Pankaj Mehra had borrowed the money, adding he killed his wife as part of a conspiracy so that the finger of suspicion points to the lender.

“He wanted to make it look like the lender killed his wife. Pankaj Mehra also has a second wife.”

Dumbere said that Pankaj Mehra has during the interrogation accepted that he murdered his wife.

“On sustained interrogation, the husband Pankaj Mehra has finally confessed of killing his wife Priya Mehra. He is being taken along with the team to recover the weapon,” he added.

A 34-year-old woman was shot dead in northwest Delhi’s Rohini on Wednesday, after the car she was travelling in with her restaurateur husband and two-year-old son was fired upon by assailants.

The victim, Priya Mehra, was on her way back from a gurudwara when the alleged attack took place on Wednesday morning, police said. The husband later told the police that the assailants had allegedly been sent by his financer to whom he owed Rs 40 lakh.

Priya’s son, who celebrated his second birthday last week, was in her lap when the assailants opened fire. “As soon as the men opened fire, Priya instinctively ducked under the seat with her baby,” said a police officer. The child received minor injuries from glass shards while Priya’s husband, Pankaj, remained unhurt.

Pankaj has told police that he and his son survived because the pistol used by the assailants jammed after firing two rounds, giving them an opportunity to escape.

“Pankaj owns a restaurant-cum-bar in Paharganj and a cafe in Hudson Lane,” said Milind Dumbere, DCP (northwest). The DCP added that both the eateries had failed to take-off and have been shut for around two months and Pankaj was being pursued and threatened by his financer, to whom he owed money.

The couple and their son lived in Rohini Sector 15. Pankaj’s family said that he would often sit at another restaurant owned by his brother, Anil, in Hudson Lane till late in the night. His wife and son would later join him at the restaurant for the drive back.

“Pankaj has claimed that the family left Hudson Lane after midnight. They then visited Jama Masjid, Chandni Chowk and Gurudwara Bangla Sahib in CP, before driving back home in their car,” said the DCP.

The car had reached near the Bhalswa flyover, near Rohini Jail, when it was allegedly intercepted by a white Maruti Swift around 4.15am.

The DCP quoted Pankaj as saying that an unidentified man, armed with a pistol, came out of the Swift car and threatened to teach him a lesson for “going into hiding” with the financer’s money.

“Pankaj claimed that he had borrowed lakhs of rupees on a high rate of interest from a Paharganj-based financer. The financer was hounding him for the money,” Dumbere said.

When Pankaj refused to open the door, the attacker allegedly used the pistol butt to break open his window glass. “Pankaj then got into a scuffle with the man and tried to snatch his pistol away,” said the DCP.

This allegedly prompted the attacker to start shooting. “The first bullet hit Priya in her face and cracked the car’s windshield. Priya had already pushed her son to safety under the car’s seat by then. Pankaj realised his wife was hit only when a second bullet hit Priya in her neck,” the DCP said.

As the attacker tried to fire more rounds, the pistol apparently jammed. “The man then called out to his associates in the car to hand him another gun. Pankaj seized this opportunity to managed to drive away and reached a hospital. His wife was later declared dead at a hospital,” Dumbere quoted Pankaj as saying.

While the police are focusing their probe on the role of the financer, they have not given a clean chit to anyone. “Priya’s family has mentioned that the duo had a troubled marriage in which the couple even stayed separately for a year. We will probe if that had anything to do with the killing. We are analysing the alleged sequence of events and the collecting forensics of the crime scene,” said Dependra Pathak, chief spokesperson of Delhi Police.

Pankaj’s family, however, said they were unaware of their son’s problems with his financer and claimed that all was well between the couple. “They had a love marriage 11 years ago and were very happy together,” said Pankaj’s sister, Ritu Sharma.

Priya Mehra (33) saved her only child Naish by keeping him between her legs. He was soaked in blood and was treated for minor wounds as glass pieces had fallen on him.

The family was retuning to their Rohini home from Gurudwara Bangla Sahib. Sources said Pankaj Mehra (34) was being threatened for not being able to repay a loan.

“The crime took place around 4:20 am. A Swift car overtook and the occupants attacked the family. We have not given a clean chit to anyone and are probing the case from all angles,” said police officer Milind Mahadeo Dumbre.

Pankaj was at his brother’s restaurant in Hudson Lane when he asked his wife to come and pick him and their son up. The couple then left for Old Delhi and later for the Gurudwara.

Pankaj told the police that he had borrowed Rs five lakh from one Monu in Paharganj who was demanding Rs 40 lakh from him. “He could not pay him back and was often threatened by Monu’s men. Pankaj ran King’s Bar and Restaurant in Paharganj. On one occasion, one of Monu’s friends came and threatened him and took all the cash,” said a police officer.

“A man from the Swift car came out and banged at Pankaj’s car, holding a gun in his hand. The car was locked and could not be opened. The accused broke open the window using the butt of his gun. Pankaj tried to hold the gun and two accidental fires hit Priya,” said a police officer.

“As the accused tried to fire another round his pistol jammed. He turned to his associates, but Pankaj sped away and called the police. He claimed around four persons were seen in the Swift car,” added the officer

IIT Delhi girl killed by IITian lover

copyright Times of India newspaper
Dwaipayan Ghosh & Ravinder Makhaik| TNN | Mar 1, 2010, 01.20 AM IST

NEW DELHI/SHIMLA: In a brutal crime of passion, an IIT student allegedly killed his girlfriend — also an IITian — in a hotel room in Shimla, where the two had gone celebrate his birthday during a mid-semester break. The boy later said he committed the act in a fit of rage after the girl told him she had other relationships before the two met.

The police arrested Gaurav Verma, a third-year IIT Roorkee student, from inside an Express train toilet at Yamuna Nagar in Haryana, as he was trying to flee to his hometown early on Sunday morning. He has been charged with the murder of Pragati, a third-year student of textile engineering at IIT Delhi.

The local police said Gaurav hit Pragati with a beer bottle when she was taking a nap on Friday afternoon. He then slashed her throat and wrists with a knife bought to cut a cake for the occasion. Gaurav stayed on in the room till 2.30am on Saturday before locking it from outside and fleeing.

The murder came to light on Saturday afternoon, when the staff of Rashiq Hotel in Shimla broke into room 206, where the two IITians were staying, and found the girl’s body.

R M Sharma, superintendent of police in Shimla, said Verma (22), a resident of Gonda in Uttar Pradesh, had known Pragati for the past three years. “They were together at a coaching centre in Kota, Rajasthan, preparing for the IIT entrance test. The immediate provocation for the murder appears to be suspicion,” Sharma said. Verma told the police that the victim had told him about her love affairs before she met him.

The police said the two met on February 25 during a mid-semester break and decided to celebrate Verma’s birthday (February 26). They set out in a car from Delhi and checked into a hotel in Shimla early Friday morning, around 3am. “The fact that the accused had himself gone to Delhi to pick up the girl is being investigated,” said an officer.

On the way, they bought a cake, beer and whiskey in Ambala. A knife too was bought to cut the cake. The beer bottle and knife were finally used as weapons to carry out the murder. While Verma gave his own name to the hotel staff in Shimla, the girl was registered as Stuti. Both moved into room 206.

The SP said after celebrating the occasion, Pragati took a nap. “Verma hit her with an empty beer bottle around 1pm. He also tried to strangulate her and cut her throat and wrists,” said Sharma. Verma left the room around 2.30am on Saturday and took a taxi to Chandigarh. Verma claimed he had tried to end his life after committing the murder. The hotel staff on finding the room locked from outside opened it with a duplicate key and found the girl’s body on Saturday afternoon — almost 18 hours after the murder. The police found remains of a birthday cake, a knife, whiskey and beer bottles and a laptop in the room. “It was the laptop which gave us further clues,” said Sharma.

When TOI asked the accused why he carried out such a heinous attack, Verma claimed he had never hurt anyone before. “Sir, usne dhoka diya. Mein pagal tha uske liye (She cheated on me. I loved her madly),” he claimed. Verma said the murder was not premeditated. “I wanted to set an example before her. Hence I was also preparing for IAS. But she refused to give me a chance,” he said at the police station.

From Chandigarh, Verma took a taxi to Roorkee and later boarded an evening train from Haridwar (Barmer-Haridwar Express) to Bhatinda. “Within 10 hours of the discovery of the murder, we asked the railway police at Jagadhiri near Yamunanagar to arrest Verma,” said Sharma.

The victim’s body was handed over to her family after postmortem, he said. While the police are awaiting the postmortem report to know whether the girl died of knife wounds or strangulation, sources in IGMC medical college where the autopsy was conducted said excessive bleeding killed Pragati. “Excessive blood loss led to brain haemorrhage,” said a source. Relatives of the girl who came from Patna to collect the body, refused to comment.

Talking to TOI, Sashi Mathur, dean of students’ welfare, IIT-Delhi said it was on Saturday night that Delhi Police asked for Pragati’s detailed background and a photograph. Pragati stayed at Kailash Hostel. “It was on Sunday that confirmed news came that Pragati had been murdered. We do not know how she went to Shimla as the institute is in a mid-semester break. All students, including her friends, will start arriving only after Monday,” said Mathur.

Hyderabad: The families of Manish Sao and Swetha Sao are yet to recover from shock. The parents of the couple, who came to Hyderabad from Uttar Pradesh to receive the bodies, had never thought that the troubled relationship would end in such a horrible way. The parents told the police that there used to be frequent quarrels between the couple and they had to intervene sometimes.

Manish, the chief products manager at an MNC named IMomentous Inc at Madhapur, and a native of Moradabad, allegedly killed his wife and five-year-old son, and committed suicide at their apartment in Madhapur.

“We thought they were normal quarrels that happen between wife and husband, and never expected it would end like this,” Mr S.K. Sao, the father of Manish told the police. Swetha’s parents told the police that Manish used to harass her after getting drunk, and they had warned him not to repeat it.

Manish, an IIT graduate, and wife Shweta lived for a while in the US and came to Hyderabad three years ago. Friends said that Manish’s professionally very successful but was depressed about his marital life.

“He had worked in many companies in Chicago, Virginia and California. But, he could not handle the problems in his married life,” said one of his friends.

After the postmortem at the Osmania General Hospital, the families received the three bodies and took them to their hometowns in UP

Friends rally for murder accused

Never mind how strongly the police and prosecutors contest Jonaki Ray’s claim that her husband’s death was an accident, her friends and well-wishers have decided to fight for the vindication of her name.

In fact, they have started a massive email campaign to raise money for her attorneys, who expect at least a retainer of $55,000.

Meanwhile, 28-year-old Jonaki is confined to a jail in Clinton County, Michigan, charged with the murder of her husband Dinesh Balagangadhar, who was a month short of his 30th birthday when he was found stabbed to death on July 1.

Ray’s supporters include IIT Kanpur alumni and professors; she is a graduate of the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur. Her husband was a graduate of IIT Madras.

Among her backers is journalist, playwright and winner of the 1998 Onassis International Cultural Prize Manjula Padmanabhan who has called upon people interested in “helping out with advice [in defense of Ray] or money or friendly contacts.”

Padmanabhan’s note in her weekly column Marginalia in The Week prompted an angry response from the dead man’s brother, Mahesh Balagangadhar of Arlington, Virginia.

“My entire family is deeply disturbed and hurt, that a renowned magazine like yours would support the cause of a person [arrested] of a now seemingly cold-blooded murder of my brother,” Mahesh wrote in his long note to Manjula. “It appears that you were not able to gather enough facts about the incident, to ascertain the true nature of what happened.”

Manjula did get back to Mahesh and apologised for the fact that she had not reviewed the facts of the case.

But the facts of what happened in the Dewitt Township home of Ray and Dinesh on Sunday afternoon, July 1, are unclear.

According to police, Ray stabbed her husband once in the heart with a kitchen knife after an argument. The two were alone in the house. Clinton County prosecutor Chuck Sherman said Ray’s statements about the “accident” were inconsistent. “It just doesn’t fit the facts,” he said.

After the autopsy the police chief of Dewitt Township was reported as saying that because of the force and the type of injury from a four-inch blade, the incident “did not appear to be an accident”.

During a search of the house, police recovered a note written by Ray, which indicated that the couple were planning to break up. Ray reportedly told the police that she had written the note a month before her husband’s death. She added that since then she and her husband had been happier together.

Ray’s attorney Barry Brunette of the Reynolds Law Firm would not comment on his client’s position regarding Dinesh’s death.

“I cannot talk about her side of the story, since things of that nature can seriously jeopardise the case and any chance that she has,” Brunette said. He added that Ray had been charged with the crime of an open murder, “a very serious offence”. If convicted, Ray could get up to life imprisonment or a jail term of 25 years, Brunette said, adding that a preliminary hearing for the trial is set for September 12, 2001.

Ray and Dinesh Balagangadhar were married in June 2000. The two met at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign as students. After their graduation they moved to Lansing where Dinesh took the position of an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Michigan State University. Ray got a position at the Library of Michigan.

In an interview with rediff.com, Mahesh acknowledged that he did not know his sister-in-law well enough. “I used to talk to them twice a week and never had any indication that they had problems in their marriage,” he said. “I never asked my brother whether they had a happy married life. Well, I had no reason to ask. They had a love marriage.

“The only explanation could be that she did it in an act of rage,” he added. “I personally did not know her very well and I did not know that she was a short-tempered person.”

In his note to Manjula Padmanabhan, Mahesh raised one more possible motive for his brother’s murder. A week before Dinesh’s death, he had designated Ray the sole beneficiary to his life insurance policy of $250,000.

“The investigating officers strongly believe this is very credible and damning evidence, and that this is a very strong and possible motive for murdering my brother,” Mahesh wrote.

But supporters of Ray see her as “a frail little girl” who grew up to be a “young lady… very docile in nature”.

Professor R Biswas of IIT Kanpur said he had known Ray as a child on the institution’s campus. Biswas is a colleague of Professor B C Raymahashay, father of Jonaki Ray and a professor of civil engineering at IIT Kanpur.

“After her marriage to Dinesh, she and Dinesh had visited us at Chennai [Madras] a few months ago and we had an excellent time together,” Biswas wrote in his email. “The news of Jonaki getting arrested… is therefore a bolt from the blue… and we find it impossible to believe that her personality has changed in such a short span of time to that of an impulsive killer.”

And another supporter of Ray — Shan Mitra in Ontario, Canada, wrote: “This is clearly a very peculiar and confounding situation, and one cannot clearly know Jonaki’s culpability until the trial is over.”

Man Who Buried Girlfriend Allegedly Also Killed Parents, Skulls Found

Man Who Buried Girlfriend Allegedly Also Killed Parents, Skulls Found
Udayan Das allegedly killed his parents in 2010 at their home in neighbouring Chhattisgarh.
BHOPAL: Two days after the body of a young woman was found in a block of concrete at the home of her lover in Bhopal, the police have dug out more grisly remains – two skulls – in another city. Udayan Das, arrested for the murder of his live-in girlfriend Akanksha Sharma, has allegedly admitted that six years ago, he killed and buried his parents as well.

Das allegedly killed his parents in 2010 at their home in neighbouring Chhattisgarh and buried their bodies in the garden. On the weekend, police teams went to the house and found the remains of two bodies, which will be verified with a DNA test.

“I would want the harshest punishment for him. He is a vicious man. He moved with thorough planning and after murdering my daughter, he tried to erase all signs,” Akanksha’s shattered father told reporters in West Bengal’s Bankura.

Akansha Sharma, 28, had been strangled after which her body was placed in a metal box.
Das met 28-year-old Akanksha on a social networking site and told her he was an IIT graduate recently back from the US. He moved in with her in June.

In December, the two had a huge fight, after which Das allegedly strangled Akanksha. Das claims he suspected she was having an affair.

He allegedly placed her body in a metal box and poured concrete to create a mausoleum of sorts inside his bedroom. He covered the block with marble.

For days, he allegedly chatted online with Akanksha’s family using her account.

When Akanksha went silent except for WhatsApp messages, her family reported her missing.

Last week, her mobile phone was tracked down to the home that she shared with Das. A neighbour had complained of a stench from the house, which Das first tried to pass off as dead rats.

The police say Das claimed at first that his mother was a police officer now based in the US and his father was a factory owner.

Confronted with discrepancies in his statements, Das finally broke down. On Thursday night, the police used large drills for three hours to dig out the body. The next day, Das was arrested and charged.

He is now expected to be charged with three murders, including those of his parents

MAN KILLS HIS PARENTS, LIVE-IN PARTNER AND LIVES LAVISH LIFE

Man kills his parents, live-in partner and lives lavish life

In a gruesome act, a 32-year-old man in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, not only killed his live-in partner, but also buried the body in the first floor of his house and then made an altar over it. But cops sniffed their way into his house after the parents of the deceased girl smelt a rat. Later, on interrogation, the accused told the police that he murdered his parents also. According to police, Udayan Das, a resident of Saket Nagar in Govindpura police station area, befriended a girl from West Bengal, Akanksha alias Sweta Sharma, 28, and brought her to Bhopal. The duo then lived together and after a dispute he killed her in a fit of rage in the last week of December 2016. He then buried the body on the first floor of his house, made an altar over it and slept on top of it.
The accused, according to neighbours, lived a lavish life and no neighbour has even seen any of his kin come to the house. The Govindpura police unfolded the murder mystery after the Bengal police reached the city, acting on a missing person’s complaint lodged by one Devendra Sharma, a resident of Bankura in West Bengal. According to the father of the deceased girl, Akanksha had left home in June 2016 to seek a job. Till December, she sometimes talked to her parents over phone, but that stopped and she only kept texting them. When her kin asked her whereabouts she texted them saying she was doing a job in the US. Udayan claimed he killed the girl suspecting her of cheating on him as she allegedly used to talk to another man. He was trying to leave the country and was arranging money for it. During interrogation, he also revealed that he befriended Akanksha through Facebook and they started living together in his house since June 2016. Udayan kept misleading police stating alternately that he married Akanksha in the US and then that he was in a live-in relationship with her.
The accused claimed that his father, BK Das, who retired from BHEL, started a factory in Chhattisgarh. After he passed away, his mother, Indrani Das, a deputy superintendent of police posted in MP and in Chhattisgarh, was looking after the factory. He claimed his mother sent him money for his expenses. However, police doubt the veracity of his statements. He has also rented the ground floor of his house to Prajapita Brahma Kumari Ashram. With the exception of him being the son of a former BHEL employee and owner of multiple properties in Delhi, Bhopal, Gwalior and Raipur, nothing that Das had told the police have turned out to be true. Contrary to his claims of being an IIT-graduate working in the higher echelons of the American establishment, the police have so far discovered that Udayan was just a Class 12 pass out from Bhopal’s Subhash School and had never worked in the US.
Udayan claimed he murdered his parents in Raipur (Chhattisgarh) in 2010 and buried their bodies in the garden of their own house. He then sold off the house to one Harish Pandey in 2013 for Rs 31 lakh and bought a Mercedes. He said he killed his parents because he was fed up with their objecting to his spendthrift ways which was affecting his engineering studies. A joint team of Bhopal and Bengal Police later exhumed the bodies of his parents. The skeletons, stuffed in rucksacks, were buried in an eight-foot-deep pit, police said. One of those was still wearing gold bangles and other jewellery, leading the cops to suspect that the body could be that of Udayan’s mother, Indrani. The other skeleton could be of his father, VK Das. Udayan’s maternal aunt, Kshipra, who stays in Piplani, was called to the police station on Saturday. She questioned him in Bengali, which made him cry and reveal the grisly details. The aunt, however, denied having any knowledge of Udayan staying in Bhopal.
Udayan claimed he killed his parents in a single day in 2010-11 at their house located at Sundar Nagar, in Raipur, after an argument with his mother. He strangulated her and then laced his father’s tea with sedatives before strangulating him, too. A labourer dug a pit in the garden where, at night, he buried the bodies. In custody of Bengal cops, Udayan said in Raipur he had wanted to kill Akanksha’s parents, too! Udayan’s murder escapades will make the misdeeds of likes of Charles Sobhraj pale into insignificance. For now, cops say he claims his first wife died in a road accident in Rome during their visit to that country. However, even now, he couldn’t provide any evidence of his claims. Udayan claimed he was living a stress-free life after murdering his parents and selling the property as nobody ever suspected his parents’ disappearance and he was thus safe. Sources said that during his interrogation by the Raipur police, Udayan had confessed to having been in touch with at least 12 women who he had connected with through his numerous Facebook accounts. While the police have been able to verify the identity of 10 of these women, they are yet to ascertain who the other two mentioned by him are.
The police, sources said are probing two possibilities. First that like many of Udayan’s claims which proved to be mere exaggerations or lies, these two women whose whereabouts haven’t been verified possibly don’t exist. The second possibility, however, is a much scarier one that like Akanksha and his own parents, Udayan may have murdered these two women too. However, sources said even though Udayan’s past crimes make one wonder if he could have committed other murders too, there was as of now no lead on this front. The Bankura police, who have been investigating the case with Das in their custody now, claim that although they are still finding it difficult to see through the web of lies weaved by the 32-year-old serial killer, their probe has revealed that Akanksha had booked a train ticket from Bhopal to Kolkata for July 12, 2016. According to the investigations in the case so far ever since Akanksha’s badly decomposed remains were recovered from the ‘tomb’, the police believe that the girl was killed sometime in July 2016. Das too had reportedly confessed to the joint team of Bhopal and Bankura police shortly after his arrest of having killed Akanksha in July 2016 though he did not reveal any other details then.
The Bankura police are still treating this latest revelation with some element of doubt as given Das’ disposition, which has been revealed to be highly dubious and manipulative during the course of the probe, it could have been him who booked the ticket purely to mislead Akanksha’s family, who at the time had began getting suspicious of her whereabouts, sources said. Sources said that during his questioning, Udayan also revealed to having procured a ‘fake job offer letter’ for Akanksha. “He had got some fake papers made to convince Akanksha of his connections in the USA. The documents included a ‘job offer’ for Akanksha from the Unicef and also an ‘approval’ for her US Visa,” police sources said, adding that these papers were prepared sometime in December 2015 and Udayan had perhaps used them to convince Akanksha of her contacts.

Kolkata: The Bhopal police recovered the body of a young woman from Bankura which was kept in a steel trunk buried inside a concrete tomb in the kitchen of her live-in partner’s house. The live-in partner, Udayan Das, was arrested by the police in connection with the murder.

The victim, 28-year-old Akansha Sharma, had left her rented home at Rabindrapally last June, telling her parents she was going to the US where she had got a job. However, it later came to light that she never went to the US, but moved in with Das in his Saket Nagar home in Bhopal. Das is an IIT graduate, sources said.

On Friday, superintendent of police (Bankura) Sukhendu Hira said, “The woman lied to her parents and travelled to New Delhi with Udayan (Das) who took her to Bhopal. We later tracked her calls and found the tower locations revealing the route of her journey.” In October, Das had visited Akansha’s family and inquired after her.

While living with Das, Akansha had still stayed in touch with her family — which is originally from Bihar — through SMSes and WhatsApp till December. After being unable to contact his daughter for a long time, bank manager Shivendra Sharma lodged a complaint with the police  on January 5, accusing Das of kidnapping her.

Meanwhile, according to the police, differences cropped up between Akansha and Das as he started suspecting her of having affair with someone else. During an altercation, Das allegedly strangled her to death. “The accused packed the body in a trunk, which was later cemented with marble. Udayan used to perform puja on the structure,” the police said.

On Thursday afternoon, a team of police personnel from Bankura police and Bhopal’s Gobinda Nagar jointly raided Das’s rented house. The body was recovered at around 6 am after a night-long search. Das was arrested, and during interrogation, he confessed to the murder. The police suspected that the murder took place a long time ago.

According to the police, the duo had met on Facebook around eight months ago and became friends. Soon after, they entered into a relationship. Das’s father wroked at a Central PSU, while his mother retired as a deputy superintendent of police in Chhattisgarh. Das is being brought on a transit remand to Bankura.

Illicit affairs no longer just result in divorces and legal battles. Increasingly, they culminate in murder, reports Varuna Verma

The message on WhatsApp was tantalising. “I have a surprise for you. Please wait till evening,” it said. But for Anu Shanthi, it wasn’t really a surprise. She knew what the message sent by Nino Mathew, her colleague at an IT firm, meant. He was going to kill her husband.

The police say Mathew, who wanted to marry Shanthi, ended up killing her daughter and mother-in-law, along with her husband, in Thiruvananthapuram on April 16 this year. “Shanthi had given Mathew a map with details on how to enter and leave the house,” says R. Prathapan Nair, deputy superintendent of police.

The triple murder didn’t stay in the news in the Kerala capital for long. Nair says it was followed by four back-to-back cases of marriages ending in murder because of illicit relationships.

Social scientists will tell you that extramarital relationships have become a fairly common part of modern Indian marriages today. What’s changing is the outcome — in the last two years there has been a spate of cases where a spouse has killed his or her partner over an affair.

“There’s an overall increase in aggression and violence in society today. This reflects is all aspects of urban life — from road rage to killing close family members,” says Samir Parekh, director, mental health and behavioural sciences, Fortis Healthcare, Delhi.

Three Sundays ago, residents of an upscale housing complex in Bangalore woke up to jolting news. Saurabh Rastogi, who worked as HR manager at a city-based BPO, had been found brutally murdered in his eighth floor flat. Rastogi’s wife Ankisha was visiting relatives in Pune when he was stabbed to death.

Two days later, the police arrested a friend of the couple, Rasvin Chengappa, for the crime. When investigators mined Chengappa’s phone call and message details, they found that he had sent a WhatsApp message to Ankisha that read, “WD”. The police believe it was a code for “work done”.

In 2013, Bangalore recorded 14 murders over love affairs. “Two years ago, such a crime was a rarity,” says T.D. Pawar, deputy commissioner of police, East, Bangalore.

But today, from Bangalore to Delhi and from Thiruvananthapuram to Dehradun, there are reports of murders sparked by extramarital relationships. According to a study done by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), 28,145 people were killed nationwide in such crimes between 2001 and 2012.

“The crime graph is shifting,” points out Prateep V. Philip, additional director-general of police, crime, Tamil Nadu. “In urban areas, crimes of passion are inching closer to property disputes and enmity which are still the top reasons for murder,” Philip says.

Delhi, as always, leads the trend. An NCRB report of 2010 said one out of every five murders in Delhi was committed over a love affair.

In May, a 40-year-old Air Force officer was strangled to death allegedly by his wife and her 17-year-old lover. The police say the wife tried to make the murder look like a death caused by a heart attack.

In June, another marriage ended in murder. Om Prakash, a BPO executive, lodged a complaint in New Delhi’s Kalyanpuri police station, saying that his wife Neetu had gone missing. He told the police he had called Neetu — who was living with her parents because of strained marital ties — for a movie and shopping date in Noida. But she never showed up.

“But CCTV footage from the Noida metro station showed Neetu getting off the train and meeting Om Prakash,” Sanjay Sehrawat, assistant commissioner of police, Kalyanpuri, says.

When the cops confronted Om Prakash, he sang. “He said he suspected his wife was in an illicit relationship with a friend from college,” Sehrawat adds. That day, after picking Neetu from the metro station, Om Prakash allegedly strangled her in his car, stuffed the body in a suitcase he’d brought along and dumped it in an empty field near the Yamuna.

Experts cite many factors for the rise in such crimes. Lonely living, easy money and hedonism are the root of the problem, contends Ajit Bhide, head of psychiatry, St Martha’s Hospital, Bangalore. “There is financial prosperity among young, urban adults today, with little wisdom on how to enjoy it. Add to that a growing need for instant sexual and material gratification and you have a deadly concoction,” says Bhide, adding that he sees more such cases now than he did a few years ago.

On top of that, families are shrinking, and, along with them, support systems. “Many young people live alone in big cities with no one to lend them an emotional shoulder,” Parekh points out. Living anonymous lives in metros also makes them socially unaccountable. “They are not weighed down by what others will think if they commit a crime,” he adds.

Technology — in the shape of smartphones and tablets — has enabled people to nurture private relationships which no one gets to know about. The experts point out that heavy interaction on social networking sites can also lead to illicit relationships. According to a new study published in the US journal Cyberpsychology, Behavior, and Social Networking, spending too much time on Twitter may damage a person’s romantic relationship, even leading to negative outcomes such as cheating, break-up or divorce.

With the rise in such crimes, the police plan to run awareness programmes on the legal options available to people stuck in unfaithful marriages. “If a partner cheats, his or her spouse can sue for adultery and put them behind bars. That’s the way to channel anger,” says Vivek Sharma, joint commissioner of police (crime), Gurgaon.

This could have helped save the life of Shweta Bindra. Bindra ran a playschool in Gurgaon, while her husband, Rajnish Kumar Singh, an alumnus of IIM, Ahmedabad, worked as vice-president at a Gurgaon-based consultancy firm. The couple had a love marriage nine years ago and three children.

But the bubble burst in March this year when neighbours heard Bindra screaming for help. She was dead before anyone could reach her.

Singh stabbed Bindra 18 times with a kitchen knife — and then surrendered to the police. “During interrogation he said he killed his wife in a fit of rage when he learnt she was in an illicit relationship with someone in the neighbourhood,” Sharma says.

Not all crimes are committed because of sudden impulses — some are meticulously planned. The police claim that Bangalore-based software professional Sowjanya Rao’s decision to kill her husband was carefully plotted with colleague and boyfriend Jaideep Deshi.

In September last year, an injured Rao stumbled into Hyderabad’s Hayathnagar police station. She had visited a temple on the city’s outskirts with her husband. On the way back, she said they were attacked by robbers who killed her husband and took away her gold jewellery.

“The story wasn’t convincing,” recalls Inspector Venkateswarlu, who investigated the crime. “Robbers do not usually kill for a few ornaments.”

When the police checked Rao’s call records they found she was in touch with Deshi till minutes before the murder. She reportedly confessed her crime. “Her parents had forced her to marry. When her husband asked her to quit her Bangalore job and move to Hyderabad, where he lived, she hatched a plan to eliminate him,” the police official adds.

The question many raise is how a love affair can seemingly so easily lead to murder. “Rationale takes a backseat at such times, as people look for a quick-fix way out,” explains C.J. John, chief psychiatrist, Medical Trust Hospital, Kochi.

He counselled a 35-year-old man who killed his wife to be with another woman. “He said he did it because it was the easiest and quickest option. A divorce would be long and messy.”

Psychiatrist Sanjay Chugh puts the blame on “reduced tolerance levels” among people. “We are increasingly getting programmed to get things instantly and discard that which seems remotely unwanted. In the past, people used to spend time and energy in trying to make relationships work. If that didn’t help, they would reluctantly head for a divorce, if at all. But now the threshold of tolerance seems to have come down to such an extent that we commonly see such incidents taking place,” Chugh says.

But divorce for Dehradun-based Rajesh Gulati was apparently not an option. When police officer Arvind Singh Rawat walked into Gulati’s house with a search warrant in December 2010, he was horrified. The police found 72 pieces of his wife Anupama’s body stored in a deep freezer.

During interrogation, the IIT graduate — who had worked in the US till 2008 — apparently confessed that he was in a relationship with a Calcutta-based woman, which led to domestic discord. “During one such scrap, Gulati banged Anupama’s head against the wall and strangled her to death,” Rawat says.

Gulati then went shopping for a deep freezer and an electric saw. He kept the body in the freezer for two months — chopping a few pieces every week and throwing them in a lake near his house.

The police agree that most criminals do not think they will get caught, so consequences are of no significance. “Every law violator feels he or she can get away with the crime,” former Delhi police commissioner B.K. Gupta says.

But the law does tend to catch up in the end. And that, the police will say, is WD — work done.

His family stayed in the IIT-B campus(HT)

  • A 17-year-old Class 11 student, the son of a professor of Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay (IIT-B), allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself late on Friday night. His family stayed in the IIT-B campus.

The Powai police found a suicide note from the room. “The boy has mentioned in the suicide note that he was under pressure owing to his studies and could not cope up with that. We have registered a case of accidental death and sent the body for a post-mortem,” sadi ND Reddy, DCP, Zone X.

His parents also told the police that he had been depressed about his studies for the past few months. This is the third such suicide of a child of an IIT-B faculty reported on the campus in the last one year.

“The professor and his family recently moved from Chennai to Mumbai, and the boy was not very happy with the new environment. His studies were also affected and he was depressed,” said ND Reddy, DCP, Zone X.

In January this year, a 20-year-old student, the son of a faculty of IIT-B, stabbed himself to death after an altercation with his family members. In April last year, a 17-year-old daughter of a faculty had taken her life by jumping off a building in the campus.

Ex-bank manager’s murder case solved

Bangalore, March 29, 2014, DHNs:

2 MBA graduates among 7 arrested

Police have cracked the sensational murder case of a retired banker recently at Adugodi by arresting seven men.

The suspects on March 25 barged into the house of Uday Raj Singh and attacked him and wife Susheela with sharp weapons before fleeing with an antique piece of diamond-studded necklace. Singh died instantaneously.

According to the police, three men who were nabbed soon after the murder while they were trying to flee with a box containing the jewellery have been identified as Madhu alias Madhusudan, 27, a native of Mysore; Satish, 25, a resident of Srirangapatna in Mandya district; and Dileep Kumar, 24.

On Friday evening, the police nabbed two more people who were part of the gang­ – Sridhar, 31, and Amith Kumar, 23, from their residence in Mysore.

Later that night, Kiran, 28, a resident of Hassan, and Abhishek, 27, a resident of Mysore, were picked up from a friend’s house in Tumkur.

By the end of the day, the seven-man gang was in custody, the police said.

The police said Madhu, an MBA graduate and son of an ex-army man, was working as an assistant manager at the HDFC Bank in Malleswaram. He later moved to Mysore and took up a job at the franchise of Edelweiss Private Limited, a prominent share market company.

Satish discontinued education after finishing his 10th standard and worked as a lorry driver. Dileep, who is also a 10th pass, was employed with a bulb factory in Mysore. Abhishek had completed his ITI diploma and was working as the head of the unit along with Madhu in Edelweis, Mysore. Kiran was earlier arrested for bike theft and was released 10 days ago.

Sridhar, an MBA graduate, was working with ICICI Bank in Mysore, and Amith Kumar, a BBM graduate, had a job at a call centre.

During the interrogation it came to light that Madhu, along with  Ramprasad and others, purchased the franchise of Edelweiss Private Limited, but the company ran into loss and Ramprasad cheated Madhu of Rs 1.2 crore. He had also cheated other people of money and had been absconding for the past one and a half years. There are cases registered against Ramprasad in Hospet, Tumkur and other places, added police.

Huge debt

Madhu had run into deep debt and people who had invested in the company were constantly nagging him to return the money, while Ramprasad was absconding. Madhu did not know what to do and shared his problem with his friend Abhishek.

Later on, Abhishek introduced Madhu to Ravindra who told them about Uday Raj Singh, a retired State Bank of Mysore manager in Bangalore who was trying to sell an antique gold necklace.

Madhu and Abhishek gathered information about the antique piece made out of gold and diamond and valued at Rs 18 crore. They both planned to somehow buy the necklace and sell it at a higher price in Mumbai, which would help them settle their debts, said the police.

Madhu and Abhishek visited Singh’s house a couple of times posing as customers to buy the necklace and were negotiating the price with Singh. The duo informed the rest of their friends and conspired to steal the necklace by murdering Singh.

On March 25, all the seven of them went to Singh’s house in two cars at around 2 pm and started negotiating the deal. While they were talking business, they pulled out knives and other weapons, slit Singh’s throat and killed him brutally. They also slit Singh’s wife Susheela’s throat and grabbed the jewel and other gold ornaments which Susheela was wearing. But the screams of Susheela alerted the passersby and neighbours who found that something had gone wrong and informed the police constables who were posted at a nearby school. Amith, who was standing guard outside the house, alerted his friends to flee.

Sudhir S, inspector, Adugodi police station, said, “The police rushed to the spot, while the accused got petrified on seeing people gathered outside the house. They tried to flee by jumping off the compound wall on the rear side of the house. While three of them were nabbed by the police constables with the help of three passersby, the other four managed to escape.”

He added that the four absconding men were arrested based on the information provided by their three associates.

A senior police officer said the higher authorities had announced a cash prize for the constables and three people who put up a daring act in nabbing the suspects on the day of the murder.

Stock market losses led bank manager to murder

BANGALORE: Somewhere in October 2012, two businessmen coping with huge losses met a person who was desperate to sell his antique necklace gifted to his mother by her great grandmother. Uday Singh, who wanted to sell the piece of antique jewellery, firmly believed the 521-gm uncut diamond necklace would fetch him at least Rs 10 to Rs 12 crore.

Little did Uday Singh know that the meeting would cost him his life 18 months later. The two businessmen and Uday met 23 times before March 18, 2014 when Uday was stabbed to death in his Lakkasandra residence for the same necklace.

The prime accused Madhusoodan Nagendra, ex-bank manager, and Abhishek Jagadish confessed to the crime late Friday night that they were deep in debt and planned to rob the necklace to settle their dues.

Sitting in a corner of Adugodi police station on Saturday, Madhu recalled how a broker friend introduced him to Uday. “My friend Ravindra, a broker, introduced me to Uday in October 2012 and Uday showed me a photograph of the necklace. He requested my help to sell it. I don’t know why he wanted to sell it,” he said.

A former assistant manager with HDFC Bank-Mallesharam branch, Madhu got into share market deals with his friend Abhishek in Mysore but both sustained heavy losses as they claimed someone called Ram Prasad cheated him.

Police investigation revealed that Ram Prasad has been booked for cheating in several police stations across the state. “I showed a picture of the necklace to Abhishek and he said buyers in Mumbai would pay a hefty price,” Madhu said.

According to Abhishek, Uday Singh started forcing them to sell the necklace at the earliest. “One day, a gold merchant from Andaman & Nicobar Islands visited Uday and asked for the necklace. On seeing it, he estimated the price between Rs 40 and Rs 50 lakh,” Abhishek told police.

Knowing well that the necklace could not be sold for Rs 12 crore, Madhu and Abhishek decided to rob it. “We planned to sell it in Mumbai and settle our debts. As we had no idea how to attack a person and rob him, we contacted five other men as we knew they’d indulged in anti-social activities,” they confessed

To recoup biz losses, MBA grad murdered retd banker

Madhusudhan, the main accused, hatched plot to save parents embarrassment of depositors queuing up

He wanted to save his parents the embarrassment of depositors queuing up at their doorstep following the business losses he had suffered. Instead, the MBA graduate and director of a multinational financial services firm has ended up in jail as main accused in the murder of retired bank manager Uday Raj Singh. Tempting fate: The eight-year saga of a Rs 15-cr heirloom
Seven persons were arrested by Adugodi police for the murder and attack on his wife, Susheela, at the couple’s house at Lakkasandra near Wilson Garden on Tuesday. Police say the motive was to steal the antique diamond necklace which Singh believed was valued at least Rs 18 crore, along with other gold jewellery and cash.
The key conspirator, Madhusudhan (27), is the son of a retired army officer, and has done MBA in finance from a private college in Mysore. Madhu’s father is retired army captain Nagendra, and the family resides at Hebbal in Mysore. Madhu was a director of Edelweiss Pvt Ltd at Saraswathupuram in Mysore. He had taken the firm as a franchise and was running the business.

Another MBA graduate and a BBM graduate are among the others arrested.

The arrested persons have confessed that they wanted to rob the necklace to solve their financial problems as they had sustained a setback in business. Police said they were hoping to make big money by selling the necklace in Rajasthan. The market value of the necklace, including the diamonds and gold, is around Rs 50 lakh, but since it is an antique piece, it is difficult to ascertain its value.
Also arrested are Satish (25), a resident of Srirangapattana in Mandya. The Class X passout was working as a lorry driver; Dilip Kumar (24), a resident of Lakshmikantha Nagar, Hebbal, who was working in a bulb factory in Mysore after completing Class X. The duo was arrested along with Madhu on the day of murder when they were trying to escape from the spot.

Based on their information, the cops arrested Abhishek alias Abhi (27) from Mysore, an ITI diploma-holder who was employed as branch manager in Madhu’s firm; Kiran (28), a resident of Hassan, who has studied up to Std VII. He was earlier arrested in a vehicle theft case and released on bail 10 months ago. According to the FIR, MBA graduate Sridhar PS (31) was working as a verifier in ICICI Bank in Mysore, while BBM-degree holder Amith Kumar alias Bittu (23) worked in a call centre and was unemployed at the time of the crime.
Police said Madhu was earlier working in HDFC bank as an assistant manager in Malleshwaram branch. After quitting his bank job, he, along with his friends Ramprasad and Sudharshan, took a franchise of Edelweiss , a Tokyo-based company. They dealt in commodities, foreign exchange, equity and derivatives. Ramprasad allegedly cheated them by running away with customers’ money and Madhu sustained more than Rs 1.2 crore losses. Cases have been booked against Ramprasad in Hospet, Tumkur and Doddaballapur.
Depositors started queuing up outside Madhu’s office and house demanding him their money. Madhu has said he sd through him got in touch with Ravindra. The latter introduced Madhu to Uday Raj Singh. Ravindra told them about the antique piece available for sale with Singh and told the duo that the necklace was worth Rs 18 crore.
Madhu and Abhishekh visited Singh’s house two-three times posing as customers. After the visits, the arrested changed their mind and hatched a plan to rob the necklace rather than purchase it. Police said their intension was to rob the necklace and sell it in Rajasthan or Mumbai at double the price. Madhu told police he wanted to return the money to his depositors, and share the rest with the others.
As per plan, Madhu, Abhishek and the others went to Singh’s house in two cars on March 25. While pretending to seal the deal, they attacked Singh, slit his throat with a knife and killed him. They also attacked his wife. They took away the necklace, other gold jewellery in the house and cash.
However, neighbours heard the couple’s cries for help. They chased the miscreants and also alerted the beat police. With the help of the public, police nabbed the trio. The team, headed by police inspectors Sudheer and Manoj Kumar, arrested all the seven. The police have also seized the cars used in the crime and a gold chain belonging to Susheela along with the antique necklace.
Meanwhile, the city police commissioner appreciated the timely response of the five cops — head constable Somashekaraiah, police constables Nanjundaswamy AR, Ramakrishne Gowda, Nagesh M, Manappa Eeti who caught the three accused at the spot and rewarded them with Rs 5,000 each. While Rs3,000 was given to three passersby who helped nab the accused.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (South), HS Revanna said, “We are yet to ascertain the exact value, but in the market, the necklace is valued at Rs 60 lakh.” Madhu has confessed that depositors were visiting his housed and it was embarrassing for his parents. He wanted to ensure his parents did not face disrepute in society so he hatched the plot, Revanna said.Ravindra, a senior citizen, has no role in the crime
