Three days after the police rounded up a plumber,Babu Ram,in the alleged murder of Usha Grover and her daughter Heena,officials on Saturday claimed that Heena’s cousin brother Rishu Grover had committed the crime. The accused was arrested on Saturday evening.
Cracking the case,the police stated that Grover,killed the mother and daughter out of jealousy,as Heena was engaged to someone else.
Reportedly,Heena and Grover had been in a relationship,and the latter could not come to terms with the engagement.
Grover,a resident of Tibba road,was also aware of the money that Heena’s brother sent from Australia. Debt-ridden Grover reportedly got another reason to kill the mother-daughter duo,to pay back his debts.
Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (ADCP) Neelambari Vijay Jagdale said that as per the plan,Rishu first killed Heena on the first floor of the house and to avoid being suspected,he wrote the name of Babu with Heena’s blood on the wall. The accused then killed Usha Grover on the ground floor and absconded with Rs 4 lakhs, Jagdale added.
It was after thorough interrogation and scanning of Rishu’s fingerprints that the police was successful in cracking the double murder case.
