Man lured to drink, strangled in GhaziabadNovember 4th, 2011 - 8:30 pm ICT by IANS
Ghaziabad, Nov 4 (IANS) A man in Loni town of this Uttar Pradesh district was lured to drink and then murdered by the brothers of a girl he had once eloped with but not married, police said Friday adding that one of the assailants has been arrested.
Sonu, 21, a resident of Sirora area, was missing since Wednesday evening. His family members tried to locate him but failed. However, later, they apprehended Bhola, 20, whom they suspected of being behind his disappearance and handed him to the local police.
During interrogation, Bhola confessed that he along with his brother, also named Sonu, 18, lured the victim to drink with them. After ensuring he was drunk, they strangulated him with a rope, slit his throat to make sure he was dead, and threw the body into the Hindon river.
“He revealed that they were younger brothers of the girl with whom Sonu eloped but later was married at some other place. They wanted to settle their score, therefore they hatched a plan to lure him to drink since they knew that drinking was Sonu’s weakness,” said city police chief J.K. Shahi.
“Police recovered the rope with which Sonu was strangulated. A team is engaged in recovering the dead body from the river. The assistance of divers is being sought to recover the body,” he added.
