Two brothers, Vipin and Sachin Chaudhary, were arrested on Sunday from the Modi Nagar area of Ghaziabad for getting their 45-year old father murdered, the police said.
Two contract killers, Nooru and Praveen, hired by them for Rs 60,000, were also arrested.
Raj Kumar Chaudhary, a local transporter, went missing on November 14. His body was found in a well inside a forested area on November 17.
“During interrogation, the brothers, who are in their early twenties, said they got their father killed because he frequently beat them up and did not help them financially. Also, he wanted to sell the family land,” superintendent of police, MM Baig said.
