Lady, boyfriend held for trying to kill husband
A 41-year-old woman and her boyfriend were arrested for allegedly hatching a conspiracy to kill her husband and make it look like the result of street rage in the defense colony, police said Thursday.
Deputy Police Commissioner (South) Atul Thakur said the defendants have been identified as Babita and Rohan, 23, who allegedly planned to kill Bheem Raj.
Police received a call at around 9 a.m. on Wednesday and learned that a cyclist shot a man driving a taxi in Andrews Ganj and fled. The driver has injured his neck and is being treated.
During the investigation, the police said they examined over 100 CCTV camera recordings. Then they found the registration number and an address for Kabir Nagar. They then reached the bike owner who said he had sold it to a Lakhan who had sold it to Manish aka Rohan.
Mr Thakur said investigators then reached Rohan and arrested him, followed by the arrest of Babita.
During interrogation, police said, Rohan announced that he and Babita had hatched a plot to kill Bheem Raj over their relationship. He also bought a semi-automatic pistol and cartridges from a friend in Burari, police said, adding that Babita helped him with a sum of £ 30,000.
“The defendant had tried to murder the victim in a park before, but was unsuccessful. The conspiracy hatched in the victim’s home about 15 days ago, ”Thakur said.
