Malti Sahu, the mother of the teenaged siblings murdered in December 2011, appeared relieved after her cousin - the children's uncle - was found guilty in the case on Tuesday. But she still has doubts about the theory that the murder was an outcome of her daughter rebuffing sexual advances by the convict.
"Nothing less than death penalty should be given to Rahul, who killed my children, Kimi and Goru (Kavita and Gaurang). I lost everything, even the will to live on. I am living to see this man hanged," said Malti, trying hard to hold back tears.
But she said she wanted to know why Rahul killed the duo. "Justice has been done, but the police have failed to unravel the truth. Police are lying about the motive. Kimi used to confide in me, but she never told me that Rahul used to trouble her. He never visited our house. He is a distant relative and not in touch with us. I wonder how the police came up with this theory."
She said the cops had failed to arrest "others involved". "He could not have murdered both my kids alone. There were three teacups recovered from our house, pointing towards involvement of more people."
