New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Sunday arrested a man in connection with the murder of a couple in Dwarka. Vishal, the accused, allegedly murdered the couple for their property. Two other accused are still at large, police said.
Hari Ballabh, a visually-impaired teacher at a blind school, and his wife Shanti Devi were stabbed to death inside their home in Mohan Garden extension on Saturday. Their blood-soaked bodies were discovered by the neighbours later.
According to the police, they zeroed-in on Vishal, a family acquaintance, with the help of call details and other evidence.
“During investigation, he revealed that he had eye on the couple’s property. He had also developed a liking for their daughter, but the couple rejected his proposal as he was already married. Following this, Vishal felt that he wouldn’t be able to get a share in the couple’s property so he eliminated them,” said a senior police officer.
“Two other men is also involved in the conspiracy,” said the officer.
