The matter came to light when villagers found Chander's body hanging from a tree in the village on Saturday morning.

Investigation officer Satbir said that the accused suffocated Chander with a piece of cloth and hanged his body to make it look like a suicide case.Both Pinki and her nephew Satyawan were booked under Sections 302, 201 and 34 of IPC on the complaint of Prem Singh, a brother of Chander, he added.

The body was sent for post mortem even as both accused were yet to be arrested.
