Shivpuri (Madhya Pradesh): A 19-year-old allegedly murdered his uncle for forcing his mother into extramarital affair and molested her, in Shivpuri.
Earlier on February 18, the police had discovered an unidentified body under a bridge. The victim was later identified as a resident under Chinor police station area. The victim was unmarried as he was deaf and mute.
Shivpuri Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rajesh Singh Chandel said, “After the death of his older brother, the man would allegedly pressurise his sister-in-law for an extramarital affair. When she complained about the incident to her 19 year-old-son , he lost his calm and allegedly murdered him.”
The accused works at a private company in Delhi.
Accused wanted to take the victim's property too
According to SSP Chandel, the accused wanted to kill two birds with one stone-- first he wanted to avenge his mother, second he had eyes on his uncle's share in the property.
The two friends took the uncle in a car on the pretext of drinking and later attacked him with a car jack. They, then put the body in a sack, tied a stone to one end of it and tried to throw the body in the Sindh river. However, failing to do so they left the body under a bridge.
