New Delhi, Feb 7 (IANS) A man has been arrested here for allegedly killing his sister-in-law and her two sons to get money to buy drugs, police said Saturday. His alleged accomplice has been held too.
Bhagirath alias Rinku and Deepak Nanda, both residents of Inderlok, were arrested Friday for allegedly slitting the throats of Seema, 30, and her two sons, Kunal, 7, and Nishant, 4, at her Bindapur house nearly a month ago.
Seema’s husband Hem Chand, a computer professional, was not at home that time.
The killers fled after taking away jewellery and cash from an iron cupboard, police said.
“Bhagirath is a cousin of Hem Chand. He and Deepak are both drug addicts. They killed Seema and the children to get money for their drug addiction,” said Joint Commissioner of Police (Southern Range) Ajai Kashyap.
