SI, constable among 5 arrested for killing rape victim

A sub-inspector, his son, a constable and two others were arrested in a case of abduction and murder of a woman.

The five were involved in the murder of a woman of Govindpuram area here after she had filed a case of rape against Tarun, son of the sub-inspector Bacchu Singh, police said.

"Police has arrested Bacchu Singh, his son Tarun, constable Vinesh, Amarpal and his wife Rashmi," a police officer said, adding that another constable and an accomplice were on the run and would be nabbed soon.

Tarun had been in a relationship with the woman and had promised to marry her, but later refused to do so. On March 1 last year, the woman registered a case against him, which included rape charge, SP (city), Shiv Hari Meena said.

Bacchu Singh, posted at Baghpat district now, hatched a plan with constables Rahul and Vinesh to get her killed. Rahul arranged a meeting between Bacchu and history-sheeter Amarpal, and a deal was fixed at Rs 2 lakh for the act, Meena said, adding that Bacchu gave Rs 30,000 to Amarpal as advance.

On December 2 last year, the woman's parents registered a complaint against Tarun and Bacchu after she had gone missing, another police officer said.

Amarpal, his wife Rashmi, who is also a journalist, and an accomplice Ritesh had strangled the woman to death on November 30 last year and thrown her body in a canal in Aligarh district, the officer said.

Bacchu was also associated with Aarushi-Hemraj double case. He was the police post in-charge of Noida when Aarushi and Hemraj were found murdered, he said.
