New Delhi: A 44-year-old woman was arrested on Thursday for plotting her son’s murder in Haryana’s Jhajjar district after he discovered her illicit affair with his 23-year-old friend.
Parmod (23) was shot dead on February 19 at his house in Chamanpura village of the Jhajjar district. Based on a complaint made by his mother, the Haryana police had registered a case of murder against unknown people, reported the Hindustan Times.
The deceased was working as a bouncer in Gurugram when he had befriended Pradeep, another bouncer who hailed from a nearby village in Jhajjar.
As their friendship grew, Pradeep began visiting Parmod’s house where he lived with his widowed mother Meena Devi. During this period, Pradeep got into a relationship with Meena Devi.
Parmod had quit his job and was spending most of his time at home for the past one month and it was then that he got suspicious about his mother’s affair with his friend, said the police.
As a result, Parmod barred Pradeep from coming to his house.
Upset with her son’s decision which prevented her from meeting her lover, Meena Devi conspired to murder her son with the help of Pradeep. With two of Pradeep’s friends, the duo decided to execute their planned murder.
On the night of February 19, Pradeep’s friends shot Parmod dead at his residence. The next morning, his mother called the police and lodged a complaint against unknown people for murdering her son.
In her complaint, Meena said she was sleeping when Parmod was killed in the house and came to know about the murder only after waking up in the morning.
The police cracked the case after catching hold a man with an illegal weapon during routine search on Wednesday night. The man, identified as Saurabh of Bhiwani, was nabbed and interrogated, during which he confessed to his involvement in Parmod’s murder, among other criminal cases.
The police then arrested Pradeep, who confessed to his crime and Meena was arrested later. Two of Pradeep’s friends, Saurabh and Monu, were also arrested.
