 Police solved the mystery behind two charred bodies found on Friday at Chandigarh Aheer village of Ramgarh tehsil in Alwar district.

A woman, with the help of her brother and a servant, killed her father-in-law and mother-in-law over property dispute, police said on Saturday.

The woman, Geeta, and the servant, Vikas, were arrested. The two admitted that they killed another person, police said.

“Satpal Singh Tomar and Pushpa Devi, residents of Sohna in Haryana, were involved in a property dispute with their daughter-in-law Geeta. Because of the dispute, Geeta’s husband Vipin committed suicide six months ago. Satpal denied any share of their property to Geeta after their son’s demise,” additional superintendent of police Paras Jain said in a press conference here.

“Last month, Satpal sold a property worth crores and didn’t give Geeta anything. Geeta became angry and decided to take revenge on the entire family.”

Jain said Geeta plotted to kill the couple and her elder brother-in-law Pankaj Tomar, a paralytic. She roped in her brother Samardeep and servant Vikas to execute the plan.

“Geeta, Samardeep and Vikas killed Satpal, Pushpa Devi and Pankaj on September 28 by strangling them with ropes. Vikas took a car from Shubham, a resident Sohna, put the bodies in it and drove towards Alwar along with Geeta and her brother,” Jain said.

“Vikas knew that Alwar is a forest area and it would be easier to get rid of the bodies there. They put the bodies of Satpal and Pushpa in the trunk and that of Pankaj on the back seat of the car. Afraid that police might stop them at a check post, they first dumped Pankaj’s body and burnt it with petrol,” the ASP said.

“Then they entered Rajasthan and burnt the other two bodies at Chandigarh Aheer Village using petrol and cow dung cakes.”

Randheer Singh Yadav of the village saw them speeding away and noted the car number and manufacturer.

“The next day when the two charred bodies were found, Yadav gave the information to police. Car owner Shubham was tracked in Haryana,” Jain said.

“Shubham said Vikas took his car. Police detained Vikas and Geeta, but Samardeep fled. Later, the two confessed to the crime and Ramgarh police arrested both. Search for Samardeep is on.”
