In a shocking incident, an assistant branch manager of an insurance company, his wife and another woman was found murdered in Shastri Nagar Area of Meerut, Uttar Pradesh on 18th June. The triple murder has sent panic waves across the city and is being considered as further signs of deteriorating law and order.
The three people have been identified as Chandrashekhar Gupta (52), his wife Poonam Gupta (50) and Riya, a young woman in her 30s. Whereas the married couple were strangulated, the young woman’s body bore multiple marks of some sharp edged weapon.
A courier boy witnessed the scene and informed the police. Upon receiving information, Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Lakshmi Singh, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Jorwinder Gord reached the spot with other police officials. The police have taken the corpses for post-mortem.
The police, however, believes that someone close to the family is involved in the murders. They are not ready to reveal anything as far as robbery in the case is concerned.
The murder scenario makes it apparent that Chandrashekhar and his wife Poonam put up a brave struggle against their attackers. It’s also pretty clear that the killer came with the sole motive of murdering the victims. However, the reason behind the deadly crimes has still not been established.
As the investigation gathered speed, the cops took mobile phone details of all the three victims. Further, Riya’s boyfriend Jitendra has been sent to police custody for questioning. The police is suspicious that some sort of illegal activities were occurring at Chandrashekhar’s house, which he was unaware of. Moreover, it has been also established that Riya was building a house in the city’s Pravesh Vihar Area.
Although the case still has several mysteries associated with it, the cops are confident that they will be able to solve it as soon as possible.
