Rahul,the main accused in the double murder of siblings Gaurang and Kavita deposed before the court on Friday. The incident took place on December 16,2011. While deposing before the court he said he has been falsely implicated in the case. In his statement he said,“I was arrested by Inspector Amanjot Singh from Mumbai and brought to the city by air. My arrest has been wrongly shown to be from Haryana.”

He added that the disclosure statement has not been made by him and the recovery shown by the police were planted. Rahul,the main accused in the case was arrested by the Crime Branch on January 18,2012 from Ambala. Rahul allegedly murdered the brother and sister as he wanted to get intimate with Kavita. Both were found murdered in their Sector 41 house.

Interrogations revealed that he was eyeing Kavita and even tried to molest her on a few occasions. On November 20,he approached Kavita,but she objected and warned him of action. Since then the accused nursed a grudge and wanted revenge.

On the day of the murder,Rahul went to the deceased’s house in the afternoon. Gaurang asked Rahul to leave as he knew his intensions. Rahul then tried to justify himself which led to a heated argument. The argument turned ugly and Rahul repeatedly stabbed Gaurang.

Rahul then went to Kavita’s room and forced himself upon her,to which Kavita resisted. Rahul then killed her too. He suffered a cut on the ring finger of his left hand. The accused then tried to project the incident as a robbery bid by scattering household items. He then hired an auto to ISBT-43 and from there took a bus to Dera. While deposing before the court he said that he never visited any doctor for treatment of his finger.
