In a new twist to a murder case, a woman has claimed that she committed the crime to revenge her rape.
On December 10 last year, Joginder Singh (30), of Bhudha Khera village near here, succumbed to his injuries at Kalpana Chawla Government Medical College here. He was brought to the hospital with injury marks of sharp-edged weapons and sticks.
On the basis the Joginder's statement, the police had arrested a middle-aged person from the adjoining Mangalpura village. However, on Thursday the arrested person's daughter approached the police and claimed that it was she and not her father who killed Joginder. Police sources said that the woman claimed that Joginder and his friend had raped her and she wanted to take revenge since then.
Meanwhile, woman's medical examination was conducted at the medical college here on Thursday evening. Superintendent of police Shashank Anand told HT that a special investigation team (SIT) had been formed to probe the case.
