Woman arrested for lodging false complaint
Bangalore, March 7 2012, DHNS:
The KG Nagar police arrested a woman for lodging a false complaint that she was robbed of her gold chain by unidentified persons.
On Wednesday morning, Bhagyalakshmi had gone to her relative Shanthakumar’s house in KG Nagar, and left her gold chain in the bathroom. She went out thereafter.
Once she reached Allama Prabhu Road, she reportedly called Shanthakumar and told him that two men accosted her and robbed her of the gold chain.
Shanthakumar rushed to the spot, and took her to the police station to lodge a complaint.
When the police took her to the spot where she was supposedly robbed, her replies raised suspicions.
Meanwhile, a domestic help at Shanthakumar’s house found the gold chain in the bathroom and alerted him. The police then confronted Bhagyalakshmi, who admitted that her complaint was false. She was subsequently arrested. Further investigations are on.
MOGA: Close on the heels of a Canadian NRI conspiring to eliminate his wife by hiring contract killers, a case of an Australian NRI woman duping her Punjabi husband has come to light.
Bagipura village resident Gurwinder Singh had married Amandeep Kaur, who has been living in Australia, in 2009 and sent her Rs 16.70 lakh for further studies, said family members of Gurwinder.
While leaving for Australia after solemnizing the marriage, Amandeep had promised to help Gurwinder reach Australia after getting visa for him, which she never did. Instead, she sent divorce papers to Gurwinder some days ago.
Police have booked Amandeep Kaur, her father Ajmer Singh, mother Jasbir Kaur and brother Amarinder Singh for fraud and cheating. Amarinder was arrested on Wednesday.
It was on Tuesday when Moga’s Nihal Singh Wala police booked Gurjit Singh of Canada for allegedly hiring contract killers to eliminate his Punjabi wife Harpreet Kaur. The victim had told the police that she came to know of her husband marrying again in Canada, and had been pressurizing her for divorce.
AJMER: In a freak incident, a 35-year-old woman chewed off the fingers of a four-year-old-boy in Central Jail in Ajmer on Wednesday.
The woman Barfi, who has been serving sentence for throwing her son from a running train, attacked the child who has been staying with his mother, also a prisoner. While trying to rescue her son, the woman too was attacked.
The jail administration has lodged a complaint against Barfi at the Civil Lines police station, and sent the injured to JLN Hospital.
According to sources, the incident occurred during lunch hour, when Salma went to collect her food, and her son Arman was playing in the jail premises.
“Barfi saw my son and started beating him. She later, chewed off his fingers,” said an inconsolable Salma. Seeing her son crying in pain, she rushed to save him. “But, Barfi attacked me and bit my hand,” she said.
The child has been in state of shock, and not uttered a word since the incident occurred.
Barfi was arrested by the Railway police last month when she had thrown her child from a train running between Jaipur and Ajmer. She was remanded in judicial custody.
Sources said Barfi would spend long hours sitting quietly in a corner but often got angry on seeing Arman.
Jail administration, however, denied to comment on the incident.
The High Court of Karnataka has granted bail to a 27-year-old sous-chef working for a star hotel in the city who is accused of raping and cheating his ex-colleague.
Anup, who had to spend 21 days in jail after his arrest, was granted bail on February 23 on the basis of the hotel’s electronic attendance log which showed that he was on duty at the time when he was accused of having raped 25-year-old Roopika (both names changed to protect identity).
In her complaint filed at Jalahalli police station last month, Roopika stated that she first met Anup six years ago when both of them were working at Hotel Lalit Ashok. After Roopika left the job, the duo came in contact with each other on Facebook in September last year. Meanwhile, Anup joined MoveNPick Hotel and both of them continued to be in touch with each other through SMS, Facebook and Google Talk.
Roopika alleged that Anup proposed to her and she accepted. They met a few times and Anup asked her to join him to celebrate his birthday at his home on October 19, 2011. She met him between 3 pm and 4 pm and he forced her to have sex with him, she stated in the complaint.
They continued to chat about sex and he told her that he wanted to have sex with her without protection. Though she refused, Anup forced her to have sex with him on several occasions till January 25, 2012, promising to marry her. After that, Anup told her that he was using her only to satisfy his physical needs and had no intention of marrying her, Roopika alleged.
A case of rape and cheating was filed against Anup and he was arrested on February 1, 2012. He was sent to judicial custody after a fast track sessions court rejected his bail application.
While the hotel’s attendance records show that Anup was at work at the time when he was accused of raping Roopika at his home, there were also allegations that the two were live-in partners for some time.
Anup’s advocate RLN Murthy said, “There is misuse of old provisions of law these days. Society has changed a lot and we live in what can be termed e-society. However, men continue to be made victims of old laws which were instituted to protect women.”
An attempt to get even with her estranged husband boomeranged on the wife. Saurav Chowdhary, 31, and Sangeetha, 28, tied the knot a few years ago, but are now involved in a messy divorce case.
A 29-year-old woman, her boyfriend and two contract killers were arrested for allegedly shooting her husband dead at the Mayur Vihar Metro station a week ago.
Other than the woman, the three arrested have been identified as Deepak (22), and Sanjeev (28) and Rahul(20) — alleged contract killers. On February 4, the woman’s husband Shiv Prasad was shot at the Mayur Vihar Metro station. He later succumbed to injuries at a government hospital.
According to police, the woman was being abused by her husband over the last 15 years and this had prompted her to murder him in connivance with her boyfriend Deepak and two contract killers. The woman reportedly told police that she had been forced into marrying Shiv Prasad after he kidnapped her brother. Shiv Prasad, she alleged, went on to murder her brother after their marriage and then forced her into prostitution.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (East), Prabhakar said, “In 1996, Prasad alias Shibu had married the woman forcibly when she was only 14 years old. Shibu was then a resident of Dakshinpuri and used to visit a friend named Rocky who lived in the same area. During one of his visits, he saw the woman and fell in love with her. However, her family opposed the match and her brother, Vinod, severely beat up Shibu. To avenge this, Shibu kidnapped Vinod and assaulted him. Shibu said that he would release Vinod only if the family married off the girl to him.”
“Left with no other option, the family agreed to get them married. However, the next day, Vinod reportedly ‘died’ due to injuries. The case was not reported by the family as, by then, Shibu had married her.
“Shibu, meanwhile, got involved in many criminal activities and had ten criminal cases registered against him between 1997 and 2001. He served several jail sentences as well. After his release, Shibu started torturing his wife mentally and physically. A son was born to them, but considering Shibu’s behaviour, she gave the boy away to her mother,” Prabhakar said.
In 2001, Shibu allegedly murdered one of his sons by electrocuting him in an inebriated state. However, this case was also not reported by the family as they feared Shibu would be arrested, police said.
In August 2003, Shibu forced his wife into prostitution, police said. Last year, in May, she came in contact with Deepak, who was one of her clients. Deepak fell in love with her and the two eloped to her parental home in Dichaon Kalan. The police said the couple feared Shibu and wanted to eliminate him to lead a peaceful life.
“Rahul, who used to live in the woman’s neighborhood and was sympathetic towards her, introduced them to a contract killer, Sanjeev. For Rs 2 lakh, Rahul and Sanjeev agreed to kill Shibu. The woman arranged for the money from her father’s retirement fund,” said Prabhakar.
On the day of the incident, Deepak lured Shibu to come to Mayur Vihar Metro station on the pretext that he will get to see his wife and son. “It was planned that while Deepak diverted Shibu’s attention by making a call to his cellphone, Rahul and Sanjeev will shoot him. The three reached the station in an Indica,” said Prabhakar.
When Shibu reached the station, Deepak called him up. Shibu received the call and just then, Sanjeev, who had covered himself with a shawl to escape identification, shot Shibu in the back. The trio fled from the spot in the Indica and later abandoned it near Meerut, police said.
The four accused have been sent to three days’ police custody.
Two countrymade weapons of .315 bore, Rs 75,000 in cash and a mobile phone have been recovered.

NEW DELHI: Angered that her boyfriend broke off their five-year-old relationship after promising to marry her, a 25-year-old BA graduate allegedly threw acid on her boyfriend’s face in east Delhi on Sunday afternoon. The victim, Vineet (27), was rushed to Hedgewar Hospital where he was admitted with serious burn injuries on his face and later referred to Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital, said police.
The accused, Aarti Dikshit, has been arrested for voluntarily causing grievous hurt, said police. “The incident was reported in Anand Vihar around 12.30pm. The couple had gone to Cross River Mall to watch a movie. When they did not get tickets, they decided to go home. The couple had an argument and later, while Vineet was leaving, Aarti took out a bottle containing acid from her purse and threw acid on his face,” said Asif Mohammed Ali, additional deputy commissioner of police (east).
Police said Aarti had asked to meet Vineet at the mall and when they did not get movie tickets, the couple spent time at the food court instead, talking for almost two hours. “There had been some problems between the two and an argument broke out once Vineet told Aarti that he could not marry her as his parents had objected to the match. This angered Aarti who had come prepared as the acid bottle was already in her bag. When Vineet was leaving, she called him back. As she approached his motorcycle, Aarti took out the bottle and threw acid on his face,” said a senior police officer.
A howling Vineet drew a crowd and a PCR van rushed him to the hospital. Vineet is yet to give a statement to police as he has not regained consciousness. Cops said he was out of immediate danger. “He is currently admitted with 40 per cent burn injuries on his face. Aarti was later arrested from near Surajmal Vihar,” said a senior police officer.
Preliminary investigation revealed that the two had known each other for the past five years and had studied together in College of Art, Tilak Nagar, said police.
Vineet, a resident of Maujpur, is a sculptor and runs a business of selling idols with his father. Aarti, a resident of Yamuna Vihar, was searching for a job, said police.
London: Men may have been known for straying in relationships but the reality is women are more likely to get caught up in a love triangle, says a study.
Almost a quarter of women asked during the study were found to have been romantically involved with more than one individual at a time, while just 15 percent of the men admitted to two-timing, Daily Express reported.
Of those love triangles about 18 percent started on Facebook or Twitter.
In the survey of 2,000 people, it showed half of them believe one can be in love with more than one person at a time.
It was also learned that high earners are more likely to stray than those on lower wages.
According to Jo Hemmings, a relationship psychologist, while male love rats may be the biggest cheaters, driven by lust, opportunity and a misguided sense of entitlement, it is women, who tend to have a more complex view of relationships.
In A bitter fallout in a marital dispute, a man has lodged a criminal complaint against his estranged wife, accusing her of deceitfully selling of his car. The Ahmedabad Metropolitan Court has now ordered the Anandnagar police station to hold an inquiry in the episode and submit a report within a month.
Both husband and wife hold senior positions in their respective professions. Piyush Agrawal is a general manager in a leading pharmaceutical company and Ruchi Bhatia is a Trade Commissioner in a foreign embassy. Both are based in Ahmedabad. The couple had got married in 1995 and have a daughter.
According to the details available, Piyush purchased a Wagon R car in 2002. From 2004, the couple started having differences and tried to sort things out through different means. But their relationship worsened in April 2011 when Ruchi lodged a complaint against Piyush under the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act. Following the complaint, Piyush started living separately.
Piyush’s lawyer Shamshad Pathan said that recently his client came to know that Ruchi, who was using the car, had sold it off to another person in Ahmedabad in 2009 by forging Piyush’s signature.
Pathan said: “While the marital dispute was aggravating, Piyush noticed the absence of the car and made constant inquiries about the same to Ruchi. But she avoided answering the queries under one or the other pretext. It was only after Piyush inquired about the ownership of the car with the RTO that he came to know that Ruchi has sold it off to one Kamlesh Korani in 2009 by forging his signature.”
He added, “Piyush lodged a complaint with the police to register an offence of cheating against Ruchi, but when the police did not act upon the complaint, we lodged a court complaint.”
In his court complaint, Piyush has also produced a copy of the receipt of the amount accepted by Ruchi to sell the car whereby she has allegedly forged his signature. Pathan added that the Metropolitan Court has ordered the Anandnagar police to inquire into the issue and submit a report within 30 days.

A TV actress’ bid to get better TRP ratings for her show and get rid of her driver-cum-boyfriend by claiming that he molested her fell flat on Saturday when Thane Sessions Court granted bail to the accused and held that prima facie there is no evidence to support her claims.
On Thursday night, Ekta Tiwari, 28, who plays the lead, Radha, in TV show Tere Mere Sapne filed a sexual assault complaint against her driver Sajid Syed, 25, with the Navghar (Bhayander E) Police Station. Next day, Syed surrendered before the police and was then presented before Judicial Magistrate A G Das at Thane Sessions Court on Saturday.
518 text messages
During the Saturday’s bail hearing, defence counsel Edgar Braganza contended before the magistrate that Tiwari and Syed were in a relationship and both had even recently visited Tiwari’s native place in Dewas, Madhya Pradesh, to meet her parents, for a possible wedding. He presented a record of 518 text messages exchanged between the two as proof.
He contended that when Tiwari was admitted in the Riddhi Siddhi Hospital, Mira Road from June 19 to June 22 for treatment of a throat infection, it was Syed who signed all the consent documents during her stay in the hospital.
The defence further added that the actress had sacked Syed a few days ago “after he caught her in bed with her director in a compromising position in her Ramdev Park apartment in Mira Road”.
“She then filed a molestation complaint against Syed to use this to increase the show’s TRPs,” he went on to add.
In her judgement, Das observed that the 518 text messages Tiwari had exchanged with the accused, who was her driver, “were not related to their professional work and were more on the intimate side”.
The court also noted that it seemed that Tiwari, who had bagged the lead role in the TV serial a short while ago, accused Syed of molestation in order to further the TRP ratings and also to seek media attention. “There is no prima facie evidence in the case and the bail is granted to the accused,” Das observed.
Ekta Tiwari, the lead actress of Tere Mere Sapne and a resident of Surya Darshan Apartment, Ramdev Park, Mira Road (E), had employed Sajid Syed as a driver three months ago. Syed, a resident of Naya Nagar, was employed on the recommendation of her production crew member. But on 15 July, she sacked Syed.
After the sacking, Syed allegedly started sending her lewd SMSes. According to the FIR, Syed barged into her home and tried to rape her. When Tiwari’s friend intervened, Syed escaped.

London: The wife of a doctor landed herself in trouble after mistakenly sending to her hubby a text message which she meant for her lover, Daily Mail reported.
The doctor threatened to kill his estranged wife after she accidentally sent him a text message intended for her lover, a British court heard.
Nurse Victoria Stacey wrote a message for a family friend with whom she was having an affair, which read: “How about another weekend in the Marriott Hotel in Birmingham?”
The court heard that because she was unfamiliar with her new mobile phone, she accidentally sent it to her husband Simon Stacey, 39, instead of her lover.
Stacey, mother of two children, said that after her husband received the text message, he called her to say “he was going to come down and kill me at work”.
She admitted to the affair with a friend’s husband while giving evidence during the trial for assault at Bolton Crown Court.
“I sent that message in error because I had just got a new mobile phone,” she told the court while adding that she had embarked on the affair after her husband moved out of the family home.
She also claimed to have allegedly suffered years of abuse by her husband.
The doctor has denied one count of assault causing actual bodily harm after allegedly beating his wife with a shoe, leaving her in fear for her life.
The jury heard the assault was just one of many incidents of violence during the couple’s turbulent marriage.
NAGPUR: Eight year after their love marriage, wife left husband and decamped with cash and valuables worth Rs 8.85 lakh before fleeing with her lover.

According to the police, being relatives, the complainant, 30-year-old, Harinder (name changed) fell in love with Surendra Kaur. Eight years ago, the couple’s parents accepted their relationship and assented their marriage.
The complainant’s name has been changed in the report as per his request.
The couple has stayed together for eight years and has not been blessed with any child, said police sources. Sources informed that the complainant has not reported any dispute between them and is still clueless about what went wrong in their relationship.
The complainant, who owns a business, mentioned in his complaint that his wife came in contact with Karande, through social networking sites.
Police said that the wife told Harinder about Karande as his internet friend. Harinder knew about his wife’s chatting with Karande and even had arguments with her over the topic.
The incident took place on July 20 while Harinder had gone to his work place while his wife was alone at house. When he returned home, he was shocked to find his wife not at home and the valuables worth Rs 7.35 lakh and Rs 1.5 lakh cash was missing from the almirah.
A shattered Harinder tried to contact his wife but she has switched off her cell phone, said police sources. Harinder enquired for two days and finally filed a complaint against his wife and her lover.
Karande is a native of Manikbagh, Amrut Nagar in Pune. Jaripatka police is on the lookout for him.
Woman filed case accusing hubby of suspecting her fidelity
Posted On Thursday, July 21, 2011 at 12:53:03 AM
|In a twist to a domestic violence case filed by a 26-year-old woman, the Pimpri court quashed her alimony claim after her eight-year-old daughter nailed her lies. The woman had accused her husband of torturing her and suspecting her fidelity. The accusations turned on their heads when the little girl said that she saw her mother sleep with another man in the house when her father was not around.
The woman had accused her husband of physically and mentally harassing her under the influence of alcohol. The so-called victim had lodged a case against her 39-year-old husband, his mother, his brother and his married sister. Barring her and her husband, all the others stay in a village in Akola district.
The couple were married on March 31, 2000 in Akola. They then migrated to Pune in 2003. The man managed to land a job in the industrial township of Pimpri-Chinchwad, while the woman started a beauty parlour.
Trouble started brewing between the two in 2010 after she started claiming that her husband abused her, suspecting that she was having an affair with another man. She even approached the Pimpri police on February 13, 2010 and complained about her husband. The police registered a non-cognisable offence.
The man’s counsel, advocate Rajendra Anbhule told Mirror that his client finally left home with his daughter. “His wife filed a divorce petition in the family court, in which she had not demanded alimony,” he said. Later on, she asked for maintenance when she filed a case under the Domestic Violence Act. “In reply to this, we submitted that the man came to know about her illicit relationship from their daughter.
When this fact came to light, Anbhule said she even filed cases against her own father and brother. “Her eight-year-old daughter had seen a man visiting her mother in the absence of her father, which we submitted to the court,” he said.
The Section 125 (4) of the Criminal Procedure Code reads that “no wife shall be entitled to receive an allowance for the maintenance or the interim maintenance and expenses of proceeding, as the case may be, from her husband under this section if she is living in adultery, or if, without any sufficient reason, she refuses to live with her husband, or if they are living separately by mutual consent”. Anbhule said that now it was the responsibility of the woman to prove that she was not living in adultery.

Sees condoms in her house, kills her in a fit of rage. Steals gold items to cover his tracks, but is run down by cops
Posted On Thursday, July 07, 2011 at 06:48:57 AM
|A heap of used condoms lying around in her house enraged her paramour, who bashed her head in with an iron rod. He tried to cover his tracks by removing cash and jewellery from the house, but a jeweller’s tip-off proved his undoing.
Rajamma (40), a resident of Kumaraswamy Layout, had shifted to Subramanyapura after her husband Basavareddy died following a cardiac arrest seven months ago. She was a habitual drunkard and had multiple partners, each of whom thought he was the only one.
A verbal altercation ensued, and in a fit of rage he hit her on the head with an iron rod, killing her on the spot. In a funk, he first thought of shifting the body but then changed tack and removed cash and gold items from the house, thinking it would look like a murder for gain.
Pillareddy sold the gold items to jewellers, and the Subramanyapura cops were able to nab him on July 3 after a tip-off by a jewellery shop owner.
The police have recovered all the stolen items, worth Rs 2.5 lakh, and have sent him to judicial custody. They have learnt that Rajamma had six partners and kept each one in the dark about the others.
DCP (South) Sonia Narang said, “She was a habitual drunkard and had multiple partners. Pillareddy, one of her paramours, was enraged and killed her. He tried to throw us off the track by stealing the gold items and making it look like murder for gain.”
CHENNAI: The June 2 murder near Tindivanam of a city-based software engineer is becoming more complex. A 36-year-old widow, arrested in the city on Saturday, has unwittingly become an accomplice to the killing, the police say.
According to the police, C Parthasarathy, employee of a BPO call centre in Tidel Park, was kidnapped by a gang on June 2, taken to Tindivanam and strangled before the body was burnt and dumped amidst bushes near a toll gate in Olakkur near Tindivanam.

They again met at a yoga centre in Villivakkam and began meeting often,” the police said, based on Saluja’s statement.
When Narasimhan didn’t come to the yoga class continuously for more than a week, Saluja contacted him and learnt about the sudden marriage of his daughter Saranya to a Parthasarathy, a software engineer. Narasimhan, Salayuja told the police, wanted to teach a lesson to Parthasarathy and initially only asked her to help threaten him. Later, he expressed a desire to eliminate Parthasarathy, Saluja, who works in a marriage information centre in the city, told the police.
Saluja’s late husband and the father of Dileep one of the assailants were colleagues in the ICF and she knew Dileep and his brother Janakiraman. First asked to threaten Parthasarathy, the two demanded Rs 5 lakh when told that they would have to eliminate him, the police said. The two then engaged their friend Hemanth Ram to help them, the police added.

“We will take Dileep Kumar and Janakiraman into custody for questioning. We have to recover many valuables from them. We are also planning to stage a demonstartion of the murder which will be videographed. An identification parade will be conducted in the prison in front of a magistrate soon,” Villupuram superintendent of police Xavier Dhanraj told TOI.

As part of its efforts to effectively deal with cases of human trafficking, the state government has designated one police station of Faridabad to specifically deal with such cases. A senior police officer shared this information at a workshop of all heads of police stations here on Friday.
>The officers were lectured to be sensitive while dealing with cases of domestic violence, human trafficking, child abuse, etc. “Faridabad’s Central Police station has been designated as the nodal police station to deal with cases of human trafficking,” said AK Rao, Joint Commissioner of Police, Faridabad.
“The cops selected for working in this special cell of Central Police station will receive proper training and also study about human trafficking through distance education,” Rao said.
The workshop of police officers was held to change the “mindset of the policemen” towards sensitive issues such as domestic violence, human trafficking, etc.
Some of the policemen attending the workshop presented a grim view of the actual situation on ground. They said it was totally different than what the prescribed laws preach.
“Police has to deal with cases in which women and children are involved very carefully so that their rights are protected,” said Ravi Kant, a supreme court lawyer and head of NGO Shakti Vahini while making presentation before the policemen at the workshop.
“But on the ground we come across many cases when a woman snatches chain of another woman. It then becomes difficult for the police to handle such cases,” said SHO SGM Nagar Ravinder Kumar.
“We had a case in which a woman got a case registered against her husband under 498A(dowry), took money from him, married another man and leveled similar charges against him too,” Kumar said.
“In such a situation what are we supposed to do?” he asked.
The police officers said the Central police station in Faridabad is among one of the three such police stations to deal with human trafficking cases in entire Haryana. “One is in Panchkula and another one in Gurgaon,” Rao added.
The NRI’s wife allegedly promised to pay Rs 2.5 lakh as “supari” to the gang. Marital discord and his insurance money appear to be the motive for the crime, police said on Saturday.
Paramjit Singh, son of Surinder Singh, a resident of Kunde Lalowal village, had come to visit his family along with his wife Gurpreet Kaur and 6-year-old son Karan last month.
Gurpreet, who had gone to visit her parents at Bahadur village contacted Pawan Kumar of Jalandhar, with whom she used to chat online from the US. She sought his help to eliminate her husband.
According to the plan, Kumar along with his three accomplices killed Paramjit when the family visited a gurdwara while returning to his native village, Gurdaspur SSP Varinder Pal Singh said.

NEW DELHI: On the grisly scale, this crime of passion is sure to shock. A twice-divorced boutique owner and mother of three clobbered her live-in partner, six years her junior, to death after he objected to her relations with another man.
The woman has three daughters from her previous marriages. While the eldest is married, the other two – aged 14 and 5 – were present in another room when the murder took place.
The calculated manner in which the woman went about disposing of the body has surprised crime branch officers who recovered the deceased’s body on Friday – two months after the crime – from a septic tank in sector 26 of Rohini.
“The accused, Shehnaz (35), had an argument with the deceased, Rakesh Gupta, (29) on the night of October 5 at her Rohini sector 15 residence. She picked up a cricket stump and hit Gupta repeatedly on the head. She then contacted her brothers, Shakeel and Shahid – both living in sector 26 – to dispose of the body,” said Sandeep Goel, joint commissioner (crime).
Sources said the body lay at her residence for 24 hours even as she went about cleaning the room and destroying evidence. Shehnaz contacted her brothers in the morning and the body was moved to sector 26 by the three accused on the night of October 6 and disposed of in a nearby tank.
The motive for the crime may not be a failed relationship alone. “The woman was forced to close the boutique six months ago due to financial trouble. She was desperately seeking financial aid, but Gupta, who was a tailor by profession and earning extra money working as a commission agent, was not able to meet her demands. We are also looking into this angle in our investigations,” said a senior crime branch officer.
Shehnaz allegedly attacked Rajesh Gupta after an argument. She has been living with Gupta for the past three years after separating from her second husband. She had found a backer, Rayeez, for her boutique. Shehnaz and one of her brothers, Shakeel (27), were arrested on Friday while another brother, Shahid, is absconding.
Providing details of the investigation, additional DCP (crime) P S Kushwah said Shakeel was the first to be questioned after investigators received inputs that he could be behind Gupta’s disappearance.
“Shehnaz herself had approached police on October 18 and reported that Gupta was missing since October 5. The local police questioned her but she remained elusive. We questioned Shahid as he had a criminal record,” said Kushwah.
During questioning, the official said, Shahid denied any involvement and told police he was not even on good terms with his sister. However, police kept a watch on him. “A source informed us that they were planning to go underground as police had got an idea of their deed,” the official said.
The duo were picked up for questioning from near Rithala Metro station when they were planning to flee the capital and were interrogated separately during which they allegedly confessed to murdering Gupta.
“Shehnaz told us that she left her previous husband and had lived-in with Gupta for the past two years. Recently, she’d developed a friendship with one Rayeez to which Gupta objected. She wanted to get rid of Gupta. We are still investigating if the argument and the assault that followed was pre-planned,” said JCP Goel.
Keshari, 51, a four-time MLA, was meeting visitors of his constituency at his Sipahi Tola residence here this morning when the woman Rupam Pathak stabbed him, badly damaging his spleen, Director General of Police (DGP) Neelmani said in Patna.

Shocked at the news of Keshari’s death, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar directed the DGP to thoroughly review the security of all legislators. He also ordered the DGP to constitute a high-level probe team and ensure frisking of visitors of the legislators.
Kumar asked Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi to rush to the spot immediately and said the cremation would take place with full state honours.
The chief minister also appealed to the people and supporters of Kesahri in Purnea to maintain peace as the guilty would soon be brought to justice.
State BJP president C P Thakur condemned the killing of the Keshari and said the case must be probed thoroughly.
“We will like a thorough probe into the incident,” Thakur said.
He said, “In his (Keshari’s) death, we have lost a young and dedicated soldier of BJP… we pray to God to give enough strength to Keshari’s family and followers to tide over the grief.”
DIG Purnea will probe the murder.

Renu (28) and Raju (23) were arrested for allegedly murdering Shankar, DCP (northwest) Meenu Chaudhury said. Renu had filed a complaint on Tuesday that her husband had not returned home from Azadpur market on December 20. The arrests came following probe into the complaint.
“Shankar’s father, Bhola Shah, told police that he suspected Renu. On sustained interrogation, she broke down and confessed to the crime,” Chaudhury said. Renu told police that she had been in a relationship with her neighbour, Raju, for the past two years. Raju used to work with her husband.
“As their relations became known Shankar shifted from Wazirpur Industrial area to Mukandpur about three months ago. Raju and Renu still remained in touch.” Shankar had gone to Raju’s house to inform the latter’s mother why he had left Wazirpur. While Shankar was leaving for home, Raju boarded his tempo without his knowledge,” Chaudhury said.
When the vehicle reached Bhai Parmanand Chowk, Raju drew Shankar’s attention towards him and said he should stop. When Shankar stopped the tempo and stepped out, Raju told him that he should tighten a nut in his tempo. As Shankar tightened the nut Raju shot him in the neck and threw the body in the fields near Sonipat.
|The local police in Orissa’s steel township of Rourkela are searching for a young woman who married another woman by posing as a man. The woman has reportedly fled from the town after the ”wife” registered a cheating case with the police. The incident has become a major topic of discussion in the steel hub.|
|Minati Khatua (27), a resident of Power House Road of Rourkela married one Sitakanta Routray, a resident of sector six of the town, a year back after both fell in love with each other.
While Minati was working as an office assistant with a local NGO, Sitakanta was a salesman by profession and was attached to the local branch of a FMCG company.
Both had a civil marriage after Minati’s family members objected to their relationship.
When she confronted her “husband” on the matter, “he” (Smutimoyee) admitted that “he” had done a mistake. “He” allegedly absconded when “he” realised that Minati would be inform the police about the incident.
Minati has told the police that though they had been living together for more than a year, they never had any physical relationship.
Whenever she made any attempt to get physical with her “husband”, the latter had always dissuaded her saying that she should wait for a few months more as “he” wanted to conduct a puja in a temple in Puri before having a sexual relationship with her.
Not a doubt
Minati also revealed that she had never doubted her husband’s gender as “he” was always wearing men’s clothes and sported a man’s haircut.
The police suspect that Smutimoyee orchestrated the entire marriage to dupe Minati as the former reportedly had already obtained two bank loans in the latter’s name after their marriage.

In a bizarre game of death, a woman in Mumbai lured her paramour into a card game, in which one of the players is blindfolded, and bludgeoned him to death with an iron rod while he was blindfolded.
Sunita Sadanand Waghmare (30), used this ploy to murder Devidas Ghodmare (32) in Nallasopara in late July, but was arrested from a hideout in Chandrapur on Sunday, police said.
They added that Ghodmare had threatened to sell the woman to a brothel in Mumbai, which prima facie appears to be the cause behind the murder.
Ghodmare and Sunita are both residents of Chandrapur. Since the past several years, both were in love, inspite of Sunita being married. Ghodmare, however, was a bachelor.
A few years ago, Ghodmare shifted base to a site in Perne phata in Pune, where he worked with a civil contractor as a supervisor. Soon, Sunita joined him, and worked in the contractor’s office, doing menial jobs.
Since his employer also had some civil works going on in Nallasopara, Ghodmare shifted base there this year, and as Sunita was alone, she also joined him. Both stayed in a chawl in Evershine Nallasopara.
Police said the duo would enter into regular tiffs over trivial issues. During one such altercation, Ghodmare threatened Sunita that he will sell her into a brothel in Mumbai if she did not stop the fights.
Also, since Sunita was a stranger in the city, Ghodmare was aware of her helplessness, said API Valmik Patil of Nallasopara police station.
On July 25, fed up with the threats, Sunita decided to get rid of Ghodmare. She lured him to play ‘Do Patti’, a card game where one player’s eyes are blindfolded while the other hides the card.
Once the card is hidden, the blindfolded player is allowed to remove the blindfold, and has to search for the hidden card. In the first two games, Ghodmare won, and thus built up his confidence.
During the third game, when Ghodmare’s eyes were blindfolded with a handkerchief, Sunita, who had already stolen iron rods used in construction, hit him with the rod on his head, rupturing his skull and killing him instantly.
She had also tied his hands and legs. Sunita then fled from the site.
Aug. 2: Upset with her daughter for getting married to a man of her own choice, a woman allegedly got her son-in-law murdered and later burned the body. The man was killed on July 17, a police officer said. The police on Sunday arrested the woman and her three associates in Vellore and brought them to the city on Monday.
The woman had feared that she would lose her share in her daughter’s property. The prime accused has been identified as S. Bharathi, a resident of Srirampura, and her associates as Michael, P. Selvam and Saravan, all from Vellore in Tamil Nadu.
The murder was discovered after Bharathi’s daughter V. Pravina filed a missing complaint with the police. Pravina got married to Vimal Kumar, alias Manja, a few months ago despite strong opposition from her mother. After the wedding, the couple shifted to Laggere while Bharathi vacated her house in Srirampura and returned to Vellore.
Their Srirampura house has been registered in Pravina’s name. “Bharati wanted Pravina to marry a man of her choice so that the three could live in the same house. But Bharathi feared that Pravina would sell the property and she would not get any share,” the officer said. After returning to Vellore, Bharathi and the three accused, hatched a plot to murder Vimal Kumar. According to sources, Michael, one of the accused, is Bharathi’s paramour.
As per plan, the accused hired a car and after reaching the city, they stopped near ESI hospital in Rajajinagar around 8 pm on July 17. “Bharathi then called up Pravina and asked her to send Vimal to take her home as she did not know the way. When Vimal reached the spot, he was pushed into the car and strangled to death,” the officer said.
Meanwhile, when Pravina failed to reach her husband on phone, she filed a missing complaint. “During the investigation, we found that the accused has murdered Vimal and burned his body near Krishnagiri,” the officer said.

|New Delhi: A 37-year-old woman went to a police station to file a missing report about her husband but landed in police net for allegedly murdering him with her 23-year-old lover.
Manju Joshi, her lover Lekhraj and a Deepak Sharma (27) were arrested for their alleged involvement in the murder of her husband Dinesh Kumar Joshi, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer) Chhaya Sharma.
“Manju was annoyed with her husband as he was a habitual drunkard and used to beat her and other family members. His habit ruined the family. He had sold his flat and other household articles,” Sharma said. Meanwhile, she became close to her landlord’s son Lekhraj who helped her financially.
On June 16, Manju left her husband in a drunken condition with Lekhraj, who along with his friend Deepak took him to a vacant plot in Rohini Sector 23 and allegedly murdered him with blades and smashed his face with a stone.
During investigations, official said, it came to light that Dinesh and Lekhraj had a fight in the first week of May due to the youth’s relationship with his wife. After this, Dinesh started living with his sisters.
On June 15, Dinesh and his wife visited his sister’s house and returned home the next day. Four days later, Manju called Dinesh’s sister and told her that he had left them at Sector-5, Rohini on June 16 and hadn’t turned up since.
“Seema told her to wait for sometime as Dinesh used to often leave home without informing anyone in the family for several days. When he did not come return July 12, they went to Vijay Vihar police station to lodge a missing persons’ report. There they saw a photo on a notice board and identified it as being Dinesh,” Sharma said. It also came to light that Manju was initially not interested in lodging the report.
“Her children were questioned and they revealed that their father was last seen with Lekhraj. The woman and Lekhraj were questioned and they confessed to the crime,” Sharma said.
Michigan: A 36-year-old Michigan woman was sentenced to a minimum of nine years and a maximum of 30 years in jail for having sex with her 14-year-old son. The Detroit Free Press said Aimee Louise Sword, 36, from Waterford Township, gave the boy up for adoption when he was a two days old.
She received an update from his adoptive family, including a photo, each year. But when she failed to receive a new photo after the boy turned 14 in 2008, she tracked him down on FAcebook, the Oakland County Circuit Court heard.
“When she saw this boy, something touched off in her — it wasn’t a mother-son relationship, it was a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship,” her lawyer Mitchell Ribitwer said. “She is searching for a reason why this happened. She can’t understand it. She will get counselling.”
Pleading guilty to a count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, the mother of six apologised for her abuse of trust. “I want to apologise to the court, my children and my sister,” she told the court. I am remorseful for everything that occurred. … I don’t understand it.”
Sword was originally charged with four counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, but pleaded guilty to having sex with the boy once.
Investigators told the court they believed the pair had sex once in a hotel and also at friends’ homes in Waterford.
“It’s a very tragic case, and I’m concerned for the welfare of this young boy and what it may have done to his psyche and his future,” Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper said. “It’s the first time I’ve really seen something like that between a mother-son, but many times between a father-daughter,” the judge said.
July 20: In a shocking twist, it has come to light that the body of the boy found stuffed in a suitcase and dumped in Nagapattinam bus stand is that of Adithya, the 3-year-old son of a couple from Virugambakkam in Chennai. The police arrested Poovarasi (27), a friend of the couple and colleague of the boy’s father.
An illicit affair turned out to be the reason for the murder, the police said. The accused, a science postgraduate, on Saturday killed the boy, whom she felt was an irritant in her relationship with his father, Jayakumar, a regional manager with a private insurance firm in the city.
Poovarasi had picked up the boy from his house on Saturday telling the family that there was a function at her hostel in Vepery. There she allegedly strangled the boy using a nylon rope.
She stuffed the body in a suitcase and kept it in the hostel room before staging a drama that Adithya had gone missing. She even accompanied Jayakumar to the police station to lodge a complaint. She took the suitcase to Nagapatinam the same night and returned immediately.
Jayakumar, a resident of Padmavathy Nagar, holds a top post in a private insurance firm in T. Nagar. He married Ananthalakshmi and they also have a daughter Nivedhitha, 6.
Before his marriage, Jayakumar befriended Poovarasi from Vellore and had an affair with her. The woman visited his house frequently and maintained a good relationship with his entire family even after marriage which helped her execute her murder plan.
July 19: The Chennai suburban police arrested a 25-year-old woman in Avadi on Monday for stealing jewellery and other valuables from hostels across the city. The woman, Renuka Maithili alias Nurjahan alias Thamil Selvi of Annamalaiar Nagar Third Street in Avadi, used to sell the stolen goods through her lover, Anand, who was also arrested.
Police was acting on a complaint lodged by Mrs. Muthu Karthika, a software engineer and an inmate of a women’s hostel at Sai Ram Nagar in Medavakkam, on the theft of gold jewellery, camera and mobile phone from her room. She had alleged that a woman staying in the neighbouring room befriended her and offered her body massage. After the massage, when she was taking bath, the woman had vanished with her valuables, she added.
Police registered a case and formed a special team to nab the woman. Acting on a tip-off, the special team arrested Renuka. When grilled by the police, she confessed that she had conned Karthika. “She confessed that she had stolen from many women’s hostels across the city by employing the same method,” said a police officer. Renuka had sold the stolen jewellery and goods through her lover, R.Anand, 24, a resident of Sathyamurthy Nagar in Avadi.
The conwoman had left her husband about five years ago and was running a matrimonial agency at Kottivakkam. She also worked with the customer care centre of a private mobile phone operator. “Renuka would take rooms in women’s hostels in the city and the suburban areas on the pretext of attending an interview,” said a police officer. “She would later offer body massage to the inmates of neighbouring rooms. After the massage, when the victims are taking bath, she would escape with their valuables, the officer added.
Here’s a cop with a difference. Mico Layout Police Inspector C N Janardhana Rao believes that the law will always support a woman, no matter what. He told the victim’s family who went to lodge a complaint that he would book even a dog if a woman files a complaint against it.

|Ashish and Ruchi got married in April 2009 but when Ruchi learnt about Ashish’s premarital affair, it became a source of constant friction between them|
No wonder he refused to take up a suo motu case of abetment of suicide against Ruchi Goel, wife of Ashish Goel, a senior software engineer with Trainz Consulting who recently killed himself, despite his leaving behind a note that clearly implicated his wife in his death. “Our laws always favour a woman victim and not a male victim,” Rao said.
Ashish hanged himself at his BTM Layout house on June 23. He left a suicide note stating that he took the step because his wife had threatened him with a dowry harassment case if he did not pay her Rs 1 crore. When Mico Layout police refused to register a case, Ashish’s family leveraged some powerful political contacts in Delhi. The police finally registered a case on June 30. Rao confirmed this. “I was compelled to register a case against the girl because of pressure from Goel’s family,” he said.
Rao’s boss, Deputy Commissioner of Police (South East) B N S Reddy, however, has a different take on the matter. “There is no difference between a man or woman in the eyes of the law. If my officer has taken a contrary stand, it is wrong and he needs to be corrected. I will direct him to speed up the investigation,’’ he said.
A SORRY AFFAIR
Ashish and Ruchi got married in April 2009. She hailed from Meerut while he came from neighbouring Aligarh. Apparently, Ashish had an affair with another girl before he married Ruchi. After Ruchi learnt about it, the issue became a source of constant friction between the couple. Three months after their marriage, she went back to her parents’ home. After a while, Ashish brought her back to Bangalore.
But the fights continued and in April this year Ashish, according to his family, was pressured to try and find a job in Meerut. On June 20, he got a call from Ruchi in which she reportedly demanded Rs 1 crore in a week’s time, failing which she threatened to file a dowry harassment case against him and his family. This apparently acted as the trigger for Ashish to kill himself.
“Madurai fast-tract court had rightly rejected her pleas”
The Madras High Court Bench here on Wednesday refused to discharge A. Jayalakshmi of Sivakasi from four cheating cases pending trial before a lower court here.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had booked the cases against the woman for indulging in criminal activities between 2000 and 2004 by exploiting her proximity to a few police officers.
Dismissing all four criminal original petitions filed by the accused as not maintainable, Justice R. Mala said that a prima facie case had been made out against the petitioner as mentioned in the charge sheets.
She also held that the Additional Sessions Judge (Fast Track Court-II) and the Chief Judicial Magistrate in Madurai had rightly rejected similar discharge petitions filed by the petitioner.
In 2004, the Madurai Bench had suo motu treated a letter written by Ms. Jayalakshmi’s father as a habeas corpus petition because he had levelled several charges, including sexual harassment, bigamy and illegal detention, against more than 20 police officers.
Subsequently, the woman was produced before the court and the matter was referred to the CBI for a thorough investigation.
The CBI found out that the woman had cheated many individuals by utilising her closeness with some police officials.
In one case, she was accused of taking Rs.1 lakh from a financier in Karur after impersonating as a former police officer and in another case, the woman had allegedly taken Rs.2 lakh from an individual under a false promise of getting a job for his daughter in the police department.
The third case against the woman related to taking 16 sovereigns of jewellery from a shop without payment of money and pledging it with a private banking firm.
She was also booked for not paying Rs.16,385 to another jeweller in Madurai after purchasing some jewels in 2003.
|In December 2003, Shubha Shankar, along with her boyfriend Arun Varma and two others, had murdered her fiance G V Girish just four days after their engagement.On Wednesday, nearly seven years after Girish succumbed to injuries after being beaten on his head with a steel rod, all four of the accused were given the life sentence.Apart from life imprisonment, Shubha got an additional three years of rigorous imprisonment for destruction of evidence.Judge V S Vantigodi Vantigodi also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on each of those convicted, and ordered a payment of Rs 2 lakh as compensation to Girish’s family. Those sentenced, apart from Shubha and Arun, are his cousin Dinesh and a local goon, Venkatesh.
After hearing arguments from both sides in the morning, the judge handed out the punishment in the evening session. As soon as he did, Girish’s sister Sunitha broke down.
Shubha, meanwhile, stayed calm all day, showing no emotion even as the sentence was read out.
Her father Shankar Narayan got busy discussing the verdict with his lawyers, who later confirmed that they would appeal in the High Court. No member of her family addressed the media. Earlier in the morning, the court hall had filled up quickly as hundreds of advocates trooped in to watch the final day’s proceedings in one of the city’s most high-profile murder cases over the last decade.
“Manju was very annoyed with her husband as he was a habitual drinker and used to often beat her and other family members. His ill-habits ruined the family as he had sold his flat and other household articles,” the DCP said.
Manju soon got close to her landlord’s son, Lekhraj, as he used to help her financially. She along with Lekhraj allegedly planned to get rid of Dinesh by killing him. On June 16, Manju left her husband, who was in a drunken state, with Laxman. Soon Laxman along with his friend, Deepak, took Dinesh to a vacant plot in Rohini sector 23 on a two-wheeler and killed him by slashing him with blades. They then smashed his face with a stone so that no one can identify the body.
During investigation, it came to light that Dinesh and Lekhraj had a fight in the first week of May over the latter’s illicit relationship with the former’s wife. Following the incident, Dinesh started living with his sisters Nisha and Seema.
On June 15, Dinesh and Manju went to Seema’s house. The next day they returned. Four days later, Manju allegedly called Seema and told her that Dinesh had left them at Rohini sector-5 on June 16 and didn’t return home since then.
It also came to light that Manju was not interested in lodging the report about her ‘missing’ husband with police and that she had a soft corner for Lekhraj, the DCP said. “When police talked to her children they revealed that their father was last seen with Lekhraj. The woman and Lekhraj were questioned and they confessed to the have committed crime,” Sharma said.
In another incident, one Rakesh was arrested for murdering a bank employee, Dalip Kumar, as he suspected that the latter was trying to forge a relationship with his girlfriend. “During investigation, it was observed that Dalip was in constant touch with one Renu and that she used to speak with one Rahul till mid of April. Initially, she said that Rahul was her ‘phone friend’ but on sustained interrogation, she said that he was indeed her friend and that they used to meet every Saturday,” said DCP Sharma.
During interrogation, Rakesh said that he had an affair with Renu from 2001. Some months back, Renu got a job in a public sector bank and used to meet Rahul only on weekends. Renu recently came in contact with Dilip Kumar (also an employee in Canara Bank) and became friendly with him. Rahul felt that she was drifting away from him and this annoyed him. He felt that Dilip and Renu might get married one day. He shared the matter with his friends and they all kidnapped Dilip and killed him on May 5. The others accused in the case are on the run, police said.
Madhulika, who was produced before the court on Wednesday, was sent to one-day police custody. “Accused Madhulika Rastogi is remanded to one-day police custody,” metropolitan magistrate Jitender Mishra said, allowing the plea of the Crime Branch that custodial interrogation was required to find out the modus operandi of committing the forgery.
Madhulika, who is involved in a matrimonial battle with her estranged husband Ashish Rastogi, a pilot with a leading airlines, is accused of forging the signatures and order sheets of metropolitan magistrate Veena Rani.
Metropolitan magistrate Rani was hearing a case lodged by Madhulika claiming maintenance from her husband under section 125 of the Criminal Procedure Code. In a bid to settle scores with her husband, Madhulika tried to fudge the document of her case. She proved to be unlucky as the judge figured out the cheating and decided to take action against her.
After noticing fudging of the order sheets and her signatures, the magistrate herself lodged a complaint with additional chief metropolitan magistrate Kiran Bansal who, in turn, had asked the Crime Branch on February 1 to lodge an FIR against the accused. The accused has been booked under various penal provisions of the IPC, dealing with cheating and forged documents.
“As this complaint is a glaring example where the order sheet of the court and signatures of the MM has been forged, the custodial interrogation of the accused is required,” the ACMM had said. M K Sharma, counsel for the husband of the accused, alleged she has filed around six frivolous cases against his client.
|Six years and seven months after software engineer B V Girish had been killed in one of the most high-profile murder cases in the city, his fiance Shubha Shankar, and three others, were convicted of murder by the Bangalore High Court on Tuesday.
// // //
In December 2003, four days after their engagement, Shubha and Girish were on their way to dinner on his/ her kinetic. The couple stopped near the flight landing pointon the Ring Road when he was assaulted from behind. Hit on the head with a motorcycle’s shock absorber, Girish died a day later in hospital. Shubha had told the police then that Girish had been killed by unknown asaailants.
The police, at first, did not suspect her of having played a part in the episode, and DCP (central) S Parashivamurthy had said as much two weeks after the incident. “She is in a state of shock, we do not suspect her,” S Parashivamurthy had said then.
It was after the cops investigating the case went through Shubha’s phone records, which led them to her boyfriend Arun Verma (then 19), that they suspected foul play. Investigations revealed that Shubha and Arun had hired a local goon, Venkatesh, wih the help of Arun’s cousin Dinesh, to kill Girish. All four were pronounced guilty.
Shubha, who was arrested by the police in January, 2004, was in judicial custody for 108 days before being released on bail.
Even though she looked shaken on hearing Judge Vantigodi’s verdict on Tuesday, she managed to remain calm. Her parents and relatives, however, broke into tears. A decision on the punishment is expected to be announced on Wednesday.
Delayed, not denied
Girish’s family, meanwhile, said they were relieved that justice was not denied, even if it was delayed. ”My brother’s head was smashed, but despite knowing that it was his fiancee who had got him killed, we did not say a word to her or her family members. We knew that if we stayed patient, we would get justice,” Ramesh B V, Girish’s elder brother — who is also a software engineer — said after Fast Track Court 17 had announced the verdict.
The family, he said, had religiously attended all the hearings (more than 300) for six years. ”Between 2008 and 2010, my wife Ratna and her father Anantha Narayana Rao attended 145 hearings. People we didn’t even know helped us. Eye-witnesses came forward. After getting the conviction, we now finally have some peace of mind,” Ramesh said.
Judge Vantigodi, after hearing the arguments, passed his judgement based on electronic evidence and eyewitness records. C V Nagesh, the lawyer defending Shubha and the other accused, had argued that his clients were not even present at the scene of crime, and that one of them was, in fact, at the HAL hospital. The judge said he did not provide sufficient evidence.
News of Girish’s murder had shaken Bangalore in 2003. Shubha and Girish had been family friends, residing in Banashankari second stage. Both the families knew each other well and had planned to get Shubha and Girish married.
Shubha, however, was in love with her college friend from MMS College of Law in Jayanagar, Arun Verma.
Shubha and Arun, as it turns out, took matters into their own hands — and roped in Dinesh and Venkatesh. On December 3, 2003, Girish visited Shubha at her place and she persuaded him to go out with her for a drive and dinner. Girish took her to his Intel office and even introduced her to his colleagues after which they went to Thank God Its Friday (TGIF) on Old Madras Road for dinner. After dinner Shubha convinced him to go to the flight landing point, to which place Arun and Venkatesh followed them.
Arun and Venkatesh stopped their bike on the other side of the road, and Venkatesh took out a steel rod and smashed Girish’s head. While Venkatesh escaped from the crime scene, Shubha asked those passing by to help take Girish to Manipal hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.

Two men walked towards Girish and hit his head with a blunt object before fleeing on a bike. Girish rushed to a nearby hospital, but could not be saved.

HOW THE STORY BEGAN
B V Girish and S Shubha, who were neighbours on 23rd Main Road, Banashankari II Stage, had known each other for 15 years, and were engaged on November 30, 2003. Their marriage was fixed for April 11, 2004.
Shubha was then 21. Daughter of lawyer Shankaranarayana, she was studying final year at BMS College of Law. The engagement with Girish was against her will, as she was in love with Arun Verma, her junior in college. He was from Bihar.
Girish, then 27, was not aware of Shubha’s intentions. Girish studied in Dayananad Sagar Institute of Technology and was living with his parents, B Venkatesh, a retired Air Force staffer, and mother Pushpavalli.
Police stated that Shubha’s boyfriend Arun, 19, his cousin Dinakar alias Dinesh, and a local thug, Venkatesh, were involved in the murder.
Shubha’s father, after learning about her affair with Arun, forced her to get engaged to Girish. Shubha and Arun hatched a plan to eliminate Girish. A desperate Arun hired Venkatesh to kill Girish. Arun’s cousin Dinakar helped plan the modalities of the murder.
WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY
On December 3, 2003, Shubha forced Girish to take her out for dinner and made him stop his bike near the flight landing point on Ring Road, between Indiranagar and Koramangala. Then, HAL airport was operational.
Arun and Venkatesh were waiting on the other side of the road. When Girish was busy watching a flight, Venkatesh went from behind, hit him on the head with a shock absorber, and sped away on Arun’s bike.
Shubha shifted Girish to Manipal Hospital, but he died a while later. She told the police an unidentified person assaulted her fiance and ran away. The police, who suspected Shubha, collected call details of her mobile phone, prior to and after Girish’s murder on December 3.
There were numerous calls to Arun’s number. The police kept a watch on him and collected print-outs of his cellphone calls. They picked up Arun and confronted him with the evidence. He confessed to the murder and, based on this, Shubha, Venkatesh and Dinakar were arrested.
FAMILY WAITS FOR SENTENCE
When the court pronounced Shubha and her three associates guilty, Girish’s family was relieved that the battle was finally over.
Girish’s sister Sunitha, who was present in court, seemed relieved at judgement but immediately said: “Justice has prevailed and we are relieved. But we are waiting for the sentence that will be announced tomorrow. I can react only after that.”
|This is one idea that may not have struck even story writers in Bollywood. In her desperate bid to get Canadian immigration, a woman from Punjab conned a millionaire father as well as his son into marrying her.|
|But her plans seem to have gone awry with not only the NRI father-son duo but also the Chandigarh Police now looking for her.
Cases against her include cheating two men in marriage, getting a fake passport made with forged documents and even involvement in a murder case in Uttar Pradesh. Chandigarh Police’s operations cell officials do not rule out her links with terrorists either.
Kaur married NRI Rajinder Singh Mann, aged around 60 years, in 2001 after staying in his house in Chandigarh’s upscale Sector 11 as a tenant for a few months.
The woman approached him again a few months later and sought help with a job. Taking ‘pity’ on her, Mann employed her as a helper in his house. The two became close and married in September 2001.
“She thought that being an NRI, I would take her to Canada. But when I told her that I had no plans of going back to Canada soon, she started behaving weirdly and finally divorced me in February 2002,” Mann said.
Mann did not hear from Kaur for over two years after that.
“They went to Leh for a holiday and later got married. She did not let him (Rajan) know that she had earlier married and divorced me. She thought that Rajan would take her to Canada after the marriage. I was staying in my house in Kasauli (Himachal Pradesh) at that time,” Mann said.
When Mann came to know of his son’s marriage to Kaur and told his son about the earlier marriage, Rajan was shocked and divorced her.
Having lodged a complaint of cheating and forgery against Kaur, Mann and his son came to know that she had even approached the Canadian embassy in New Delhi to work out her immigration to Canada as Rajan’s wife.
Operations cell investigating officer Malkit Singh told IANS: “We are investigating the matter. It is a serious matter. All her given addresses have not led us anywhere. Neither she nor her family members live there.”
Police officials say that Kaur was also wanted for her involvement in a murder case in Uttar Pradesh.
109. TU BEWAFA HAI
सीकर. प्रेम में पागलपन की हद तक पहुंच चुकी महिला ने ही प्रेमी के साथ मिलकर पति की हत्या की साजिश रची थी। कत्ल की योजना को अंजाम तक पहुंचाने के लिए वह खुद पति को लेकर बाहर गई थी। कथित प्रेमी ने अपने बहनोई और दोस्त के साथ मिलकर हुकमपुरा के जगदीश जाट की तोलिये से गाड़ी के भीतर ही गला घोंटकर हत्या कर दी थी।
मंगलवार को प्रेस कान्फ्रेंस में हत्या का खुलासा करते हुए पुलिस अधीक्षक विकास कुमार ने बताया कि सीओ ग्रामीण रामप्रकाश शर्मा की टीम ने साइक्लोन सेल की मदद से जगदीश जाट (30) की हत्या में मृतक की पत्नी विमला जाट, उसके प्रेमी नेहरों की ढाणी, धोद निवासी मनोज नेहरा और यहीं रहने वाले मनोज के दोस्त संतोष उर्फ धोलिया उर्फ जेपी को हत्या के मामले में गिरफ्तार किया। हत्या में शामिल मनोज का बहनोई अनोखू गांव का बंशीलाल फरार है, जिसकी तलाश जारी है।
पुलिस जांच में सामने आया कि 1996 में शादी के कुछ दिन बाद ही जगदीश नौकरी के लिए मस्कत चला गया था। दो साल पहले विमला के बलवीर के ही दूर के रिश्तेदार मनोज नेहरा से संबंध स्थापित हो गए। महीने भर पहले मस्कत से लौटा जगदीश दोनों के बीच दीवार बन गया। दोनों का मिलना-जुलना ही नहीं फोन पर बात करना तक मुश्किल हो गया। एक बार तो फोन पर जगदीश ने मनोज से गाली-गलौज भी की थी। पति के शक गहराने पर मनोज ने अपना नंबर बदल लिया। लिहाजा दोनों ने फोन पर ही हत्या की साजिश बनाकर उसे अंजाम दे दिया। हत्या के बाद भी दोनों के बीच कई बार बात हुई।
शराब पिलाकर गला घोंटा
पुलिस के मुताबिक 19 जून को बाजार चलने के बहाने विमला अपने पति को घर से बाहर ले गई। विमला ने मनोज को इसकी सूचना पहले ही दे दी। मनोज अपने बहनोई और दोस्त के साथ जीप लेकर लोसल पहुंच गया। बाजार से लौटते समय लिफ्ट के बहाने विमला ने जीप रुकवा ली और पति-पत्नी उसमें बैठ गए। दूर का रिश्तेदार होने के कारण जगदीश मनोज को पहचानता नहीं था। गांव के पास विमला उतर गई, लेकिन जगदीश को तीनों ने उतरने नहीं दिया। उसे चाकू दिखाकर जीप में ही बैठे रहने को कहा गया।
उसी दौरान मनोज ने जगदीश को बताया कि वही उसकी पत्नी को फोन करता था, जिसके साथ उसने एक बार गाली-गलौज भी की थी। मामला निपटाने के बहाने जबरन उसे मोरडूंगा की ओर ले गए। रास्ते में चारों ने शराब पी। मौका देखकर गाड़ी के भीतर ही तौलिये से गला घोंटकर जगदीश की हत्या कर दी गई और लाश सड़क पर फेंक दी। पुलिस ने हत्या में प्रयुक्त तौलिया और जीप बरामद कर ली। हत्या में सहअभियुक्त संतोष उर्फ धौलिया सैकण्डरी का छात्र है। दोस्त का साथ देने के लिए वह जगदीश की हत्या में शामिल हुआ।
‘विमला को छोड़ दो साब’
पूछताछ के दौरान मनोज इतना भावुक हो गया कि पुलिस के आगे रो पड़ा। बोला, साब मुझे सजा दे दो, लेकिन मेरी विमला को छोड़ दो। मेरी विमला को कुछ नहीं होना चाहिए। मैं किसी कीमत पर उसे पाकर रहूंगा। पुलिस ने बताया कि विमला 27 साल की है, जबकि मनोज उससे चार साल छोटा है। विमला का ग्यारह साल का एक बेटा भी है।
लुधियाना. अवैध संबंधों ने एक मां की आंखों पर ऐसा पर्दा डाला कि उसके दो मासूम बच्चों के सिर से पिता का साया छिन गया। यह काम किसी और ने नहीं बल्कि खुद उनकी मां ने कराया।
उक्त महिला ने अपने प्रेमी के हाथों पति की हत्या करवा दी, क्योंकि पति को उसके अवैध संबंधों पर एतराज जताता था। मामले का खुलासा होने के बाद पुलिस ने महिला और हत्या में शामिल उसके प्रेमी के दो साथियों को गिरफ्तार कर लिया है, जबकि महिला का प्रेमी वारदात का मुख्य आरोपी अभी फरार है।
आरोपियों ने पूछताछ में बताया कि उन्होंने बेलन से उक्त युवक के सिर पर वार किया था और उसके मुंह में पोटाश ठूंस दी और फिर एयरगन से गले व मुंह पर र्छे मार-मार कर उसे मौत की नींद सुला दिया। शव को वह इंडिका कार में डाल कर ले गए और सरहिंद नहर में ले जाकर फेंक दिया। अभी पुलिस शव को बरामद नहीं कर पाई है।
मरने वाले का नाम जतिंदर कुमार अवस्थी (32) था। वह रेत, बजरी का कमीशन एजेंट था। गिरफ्तार आरोपियों में जतिंदर कुमार की पत्नी पूजा, निरंकारी मोहल्ला निवासी अमनदीप सिंह उर्फ दीपू और सुखदीप सिंह उर्फ लक्की शामिल हैं। महिला का प्रेमी व मुख्य आरोपी राजिंदर सिंह बॉबी फरार है। उक्त तीनों को मंगलवार शाम पुलिस ने बल्लोके रोड पर नाकाबंदी के दौरान गिरफ्तार किया है।
अमनदीप और सुखदीप बॉबी के ममेरे भाई हैं। पुलिस को शक है कि बॉबी ने इस वारदात में शामिल होने के लिए अपने ममेरे भाइयांे को रुपए भी दिए हैं। जतिंदर व पूजा की शादी करीब नौ वर्ष पहले हुई थी। इस शादी से उनके 7 व 3 वर्ष के दो बेटे हैं। जतिंदर कुमार अवस्थी गत 24 जून से लापता है। उसके भाई मुनीष अवस्थी ने थाना हैबोवाल में उसके लापता होने की सूचना दर्ज कराई थी। पुलिस उसी दिन से जतिंदर की तलाश कर रही थी।
एसीपी नरिंदरपाल सिंह के अनुसार इसी बीच मुनीष ने पुलिस को सुराग दिया कि जतिंदर की पत्नी पूजा के पास ही रहने वाले राजिंदर सिंह बॉबी के साथ अवैध संबंध हैं। पुलिस ने इस दिशा में जांच शुरू की। उधर, पुलिस ने मृतक की फोन कॉल डिटेल निकलवाई। अंतिम इनकमिंग करने वाले नंबर पर फोन किया तो आरोपी ने पुलिस का नाम सुनकर फोन स्विच आफ कर दिया। इससे पुलिस का शक और गहरा हो गया।
जांच में पता चला कि यह फोन नंबर अमनप्रीत के पिता के नाम पर है। पुलिस ने जांच बढ़ाई तो सारी कहानी खुल कर सामने आ गई। थाना हैबोवाल के एसएचओ गुरबिंदर सिंह के अनुसार पूजा मॉडल टाउन में एक कास्मेटिक की दुकान पर काम करती है। बॉबी अकसर उसे वहीं मिला करता था। दोनों के संबंध पिछले करीब ढाई वर्ष से थे।
इस दौरान पूजा बॉबी के साथ कई जगह घूमने भी जाती रही है। जतिंदर को करीब एक महीने पहले दोनों के संबंधों के बारे में पता चला था। वह पूजा को इसके लिए डांटता था व उसने शराब पीनी शुरू कर दी थी। प्रेम संबंधों में रोड़ा बन रहे पति को हटाने के लिए पूजा ने बॉबी से बात की। गत 24 जून को बॉबी ने फोन करके जतिंदर को अपने घर पर बुलाया। यहां आरोपियों ने उसे बेदर्दी से कत्ल कर दिया और शव फेंक आए। बॉबी कत्ल के बाद से अपनी कार लेकर फरार है। उसके घर पर ताला लगा हुआ है। आरोपी टैक्सी चलाता है। पुलिस को शक है कि उस पर पहले भी कई मामले दर्ज हैं। बॉबी की तीन शादियां हो चुकी हैं। उसका दो पत्नियों से तलाक हो चुका है।
दो दिन पहले भी की थी कत्ल की कोशिश
बॉबी व उसके साथियों ने 22 जून को भी जतिंदर को घेर कर कत्ल करने की कोशिश की थी, लेकिन वह इसमें विफल रहे थे। पूजा मंगलवार शाम को हैबोवाल स्थित हनुमान मंदिर जाती थी। जतिंदर उसे मंदिर से लेकर आता था। आरोपियों ने योजना बनाई थी कि वह मंदिर जाते वक्त जतिंदर को घेर कर कत्ल कर देंगे। इस दिन संयोग से जतिंदर को रास्ते में कुछ और पहचान वाले मिल गए थे। इस वजह से आरोपियों की उसको कत्ल करने की योजना विफल हो गई थी। इसके बाद आरोपियों ने दूसरी योजना तैयार की।
