Thereafter, Shweta hatched a plan with Surender and his friend Rinku and allegedly took Sheila out of home on the pretext of taking her on a pilgrimage.
“After reaching near the Gohana-Julanaro ad, they throttled Sheila with a steel wire and buried her nearby,” said Rajiv Kumar, Gohana station house officer.
Meanwhile, Shweta told neighbours that her mother had gone to a religious place and married Surender on November 5.
It was only after Sheila’s brother Surender, a resident of Karnal district, registered a missing complaint that the trio was interrogated and the alleged crime came to fore.Sheila’s body has been sent for post-mortem at PGIMS, Rohtak.
“A murder case has been registered against Shweta, Surender and Rinku,” a police official said.
