Police have managed to get some vital clues in the January 29 double murder that had sent shockwaves in Ludhiana.

Police sources said before city-based doctor Rakesh Aggarwal’s wife and mother were brutally murdered by unidentified killers at Sher-e-Punjab Colony on Barewal roadin Ludhiana, their domestic help had called up the police control room.

Police sources said the help, identified as Pooja, called up PCR around 1 pm and told cops about the murders. The autopsy report reveals that the two women were killed between 1.30 pm and 2 pm.

Also, it was Pooja who called up relatives of Dr Aggarwal and told them about the killings.

Police suspect Pooja’s involvement in the crime. They are trying to ascertain why Pooja called up PCR before the crime took place. Also, they say Pooja had access to the house and was aware about family members’ routine.

Police said they had detained Pooja for questioning but had to release her following protests by slum dwellers, who accused cops of harassment.

Police have also grilled a driver, who was sacked by the family some months ago.

Punjab Agricultural University police station in– charge sub-inspector Surinder Chopra said the investigation is on in the case. The deceased were grandmother and aunt of Ola Cabs CEO Bhavish Aggarwal.
