Police on Monday claimed to have cracked a sensational triple murder case by arresting one person in this connection from Tuglaqabad area in New Delhi.
Police said love affair between the victim and wife of the main accused was the main cause behind the triple murder which rocked Faridabad's SGM area a few days ago.
"The call details of Pappu Chaudhary, who along with his wife and four-year-old daughter were found murdered in their house, led us to believe that he had been regularly talking to the wife of Aslam, the main accused," said Romesh Pal, ACP New Industrial Township (NIT) while addressing a media conference in this connection on Monday.
"We were surprised to find out that the SIM card that the wife of the main accused was carrying was in the name of
the victim (i.e. Pappu Chaudhary)," Pal said, adding, "Our further investigation cracked the case and found that three people were involved in the triple murder."
The accused were identified as Aslam of Badaun in Uttar Pradesh, his brother-in-law Salman of Bulandshehar and their friend Shoab of Shahjanpur in UP.
Police arrested Salman from gate number six of Hamdard University in Tuglaqabad in New Delhi on Monday. Pal said efforts are on to arrest the main accused Aslam and his friend Shoab.
Police said wife of Aslam and the deceased were working in a factory in Tuglaqabad where they both fell in love. During the course of interrogation, police said that both Aslam and Salman were already involved in separate murder cases in two different places in New Delhi.
In order to take revenge, Aslam hatched a conspiracy to kill Pappu. He along with Salman and his friend Shoab reached Faridabad's Patil Chowk area a few days ago and purchased sweets and laced it with sleeping pills.
Aslam who was known to Pappu's family, entered his rented house around 7pm in SGM Nagar area and offered sweets, which Pappu consumed and felt asleep. Later, Aslam informed Salman and Shoab to come inside. The trio then killed Pappu, Shoba and their four-year-old daughter Koel and fled.
However, they left the deceased couple's two-year-old son unharmed.
