Parents of a girl accused of killing her lover on Valentine’s Day at her house have been arrested on Monday for allegedly destroying evidences, police said.
“On the basis of complaint lodged by the victim’s father Pradeep Gupta, the body of Kishan (28) was found from the house of accused at Vaishali colony on Saturday. Both SK Garg and his wife Manju have been arrested for destroying evidences,” Superintendent of Police Rakesh Jolly said.
The girl Mamta has confessed that on Valentine’s Day she called up Kishan at her house in the absence of her parents and gave him softdrink mixed with pesticide salphas because the victim had been refusing to marry her despite having relationship for long time, police said.
“Since the postmortem report did not confirm the cause of death, the victim’s body has been sent to Agra for further examination,” said DIG, Meerut Range Ajay Anand.
The police has also recovered a damaged cellphone from the spot.
