The Naraingarh police and CIA, Ambala, team have solved the kidnapping and murder mystery of a retired police Sub-Inspector and succeeded in arresting the accused who was none other than his son and his accomplices. This, when the police had prepared the closure report on December 29, 2011 since they did not find any clue.
Ambala Commissioner of Police K K Sharma on Saturday said the case was again taken up for investigation by a team led by Naraingarh ACP Mukesh Kumar who found that Mohinder Singh's murder was committed by his son Daler Singh in conspiracy with his friends, including Satwant Singh alias Satta, a resident of Bhagwanpur village (Yamunanagar). The team raided Satwant's house and arrested him along with Daler on June 6.
During interrogation, Daler said on the night of March 18, 2010, he gave sleeping pills with meals and called Satwant and others. They all strangled Mohinder with an electric wire and buried him in a 15-foot-deep pit.
However, to deceive the family members and the police, Daler lodged a complaint saying his father
had gone missing, and a case of kidnapping was registered with Naraingarh Police Station.
During interrogation, Daler said he nursed enmity with his father because he had an evil eye on his wife and made advances to her. That was why he killed his father.
The police dug out the pit and collected Mohinder's remains along with a suitcase. They also recovered the electric wire used in the crime.
Besides, Satwant told the police that he had also murdered his father in the same manner. He admitted his involvement in looting, chain-snatching and other crimes.
The Commissioner of Police said they would produce the accused in court and seek their remand.
