Four days after a 65-year-old woman was killed by alleged robbers at her Sector 55 home, police are clueless about who the killers are and how they managed to enter the gated community during the day.
So far, police have only questioned few people in the society. The CCTV footage, if any, of the incident or the accused are still unavailable.
“We have questioned five suspects. We have not reached any conclusion yet. The investigation is on,” said Narendra Kumar, station house officer of Sector 56 police station where the case is lodged.
“We are trying to obtain some CCTV footages. We hope we will get them,” he said.
The woman, Jaya Rani, was strangulated to death by robbers on Wednesday when she was alone in the house. Her body had 10 injuries of a sharp-edged weapon, indicating that she resisted more than one attacker.
The woman lived in flat number 107 on the first floor of Brothers Apartment with her son, daughter-in-law and their three-and-a-half-year-old daughter.
Police suspect that the persons who killed Rani were not professional killers. The accused went to the apartment to rob the family.
“The attackers entered the society from the main gate where guards were present during the day. Somebody known to the family is behind the incident,” they said.
Based on the family’s complaint, policemen at the Sector 56 station lodged a case of murder (Section 302), robbery (Section 392) and house trespassing (Section 452) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the unknown accused.
