New Delhi, Dec 13 (IANS) A 27-year-old man has been arrested for murdering his former employer’s father, who, he suspected, had “bad intentions” towards his wife and was also pressing him to pay back a loan, police said.
Mukesh Kumar was arrested Saturday for killing Devender Kumar Marwah, 68, at his first-floor house in Rajouri Garden area Dec 4. He had earlier worked as driver for Marwah’s son, who stays on the ground floor.

Mukesh Kumar, who lives near Marwah’s photostat shop in Kirti Nagar, was a regular visitor to the house.

“Kumar once took a loan from Marwah, who kept his mobile phone as security. Marwah happened to see the photo of Kumar’s wife on the mobile phone and had bad intentions towards her,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (west Delhi) Sharad Aggarwal said.

“Kumar got to know about it and was annoyed. At the same time, Marwah started pressing him for repayment of the money immediately. When Kumar visited Marwah Dec 4, the latter started again demanding his money. Kumar, who was already under mental stress, assaulted Marwah with an iron pipe, killing him,” he added.
