With the arrest of a small time model on Friday,the Ludhiana Police claim to have successfully solved the murder of Kulwant Kaur,who was found brutally killed some three days back. SHO Amandeep Singh Brar informed: This lady is a resident of Bhamian Kalan and was found dead in a field in Delhon on October 3 by a villager. It was a blind murder and when we started checking the mobile phone records of the lady we found that she had been having long conversations with one,Rakesh Kumar who is a resident of Tibba Road. Rakesh had gone to Agra soon after the murder but returned to the city yesterday when we laid a trap and nabbed him.
Rakesh,as per the police,has confessed to the crime and had even taken them to the spot where he had killed Kulwant Kaur and thrown the knife,which he had used to kill her.
Rakesh told us that he won the trust of Kulwant Kaur. Kulwants two sons were truck drivers and while one is in Dubai,the other used to come home only once a week. Rakesh was a regular visitor and he had assured Kulwant that he would help the entire family to go abroad. Kulwant Kaur had sold off her home and two acres of land to pay for the immigration, Brar added.
Police further said the lady trusted Rakesh specially after he managed to send one of her sons to Dubai. When he could not send Kulwant and her daughter-in-law abroad,the lady began pressurising Rakesh to return her money,something he failed to do. Under pressure,Rakesh allegedly planned to kill her. On the day of murder Rakesh took the lady to Malerkotla on the pretext of returning her money. On the way he as per the police served a cold drink laced with some sedatives.
A drowsy Kulwant asked Rakesh to stop the motorcycle on which they were travelling and the man allegedly stabbed her and later dumped her body in a nearby field.
