New Delhi, Aug 21: A 22-year-old woman relative was arrested for murdering 66-year-old businessman Bajrang Lal Bokadia here, police said Wednesday.
“Mona Duggal was arrested Wednesday after she broke down and disclosed her involvement in the murder and robbery case,” said additional commissioner of police Ravindra Yadav.
Duggal had married Bokadia’s nephew Ajay last year. But she separated over martial discord and started living with her parents in the Sundar Nagri area of east Delhi.
But, since her financial condition was not good, she hatched a plan to rob Bokadia along with her maternal uncle Rajeev, brother Harjeet and his friend Sanjay, said the officer.
Bokadia, his 40-year-old driver Vinod Dubey, 35-year-old cook Bhola Singh and 18-year-old domestic help Anand were found dead on the ground floor of the businessman’s Vivek Vihar house in east Delhi Monday morning.
Bokadia was found gagged, his hands and legs tied to a chair and his throat slit.
The bodies were found by Bokadia’s associate Subhash Sethia, who had come to meet him at around 8 a.m.
The bodies of the other three were found lying on the floor and had injury marks, police said.
Sethia found the main gate of the house open, and upon entering, he saw the bodies and called the police.
