An obsession for body-building led to the murder of the executive director of Manesar-based automotive company Nagata India, the police said on Wednesday.
The police arrested on Tuesday Rahul alias Lambu and Ajay alias Bhunda in connection with murder of 53-year-old Ramesh Vij. Vij was found stabbed to death near CCA school in Sector 5 on August 30.
Accused Rahul revealed to the police he wanted to buy body-building supplements and his family refused to give him money. He along with his accomplice Ajay planned a robbery during which the murder took place, the police said on Wednesday.
“Rahul wanted to buy body-building supplements and he had no money. His accomplice Ajay agreed to his robbery plan to make some extra money. The duo had purchased sharp-edged weapons for the purpose,” said Bijender Singh. He said Rahul has a criminal record and has served time in Bhondsi jail.
On August 30, while they were planning the crime, they spotted Vij coming out of the ATM after withdrawing cash and walking towards his car.
“The two had knives with them and as soon as Vij sat in the car, both of them forcibly entered the vehicle and sat beside him. One of them sat in the rear while the other sat next to Vij and held him at knifepoint. The duo asked him to drive and when they reached near CCA school, they asked him to turn left whereas he insisted on turning right. This led to a brief quarrel after which they stabbed him four to five times, killing him on the spot,” said Bijender Singh, SHO, Sector 9-A police station, the investigation officer.
After stabbing Vij , they dumped his body near CCA school and fled in his car, Singh said. However, both the accused did not know how to drive and they met with an accident after about 100 metres. They escaped the spot leaving behind the damaged car.
It took almost three months for the police to intensely question several persons to solve the case.
Sumit Kuhar, DCP (crime), said they got information that the suspects had left the city immediately after the murder and they spent 15 days in a Rohtak village from where the police arrested them.The police said the two accused were drug addicts.
