PANAJI: Jewellery theft has been revealed as the prime motive behind the murder of 55-year-old Rupa Parkar from Carmona, Savordem.

The accused 40-year-old Hussain Khan, a resident of Cacora, and native of Dandeli, Karnataka, has admitted that he sold the stolen jewellery at Muthut Finance to pay off his pending loan and also informed police that he purchased a two-wheeler from the balance amount.
