Modi Nagar (Ghaziabad), July 27 (IANS) Bandits broke into a Delhi Police constable’s house here, killed his wife and father-in-law and seriously injured his child before fleeing with cash and jewellery worth Rs.500,000. The incident occurred Saturday midnight in Nand Nagari locality of Modi Nagar, about 30 km from New Delhi.
Constable Anil Yadav was on night duty in Delhi when the bandits murdered his wife Pramod (32) and her father, retired army captain Jai Prakash Yadav, said Babloo Vashishtha, a neighbour.
After killing them, they attacked the constable’s sleeping boy Rishabh, 12, with a sharp edged weapon. Assuming all three were dead, the bandits ransacked the house and escaped with cash and other valuables.
The killings were discovered by another neighbour who became suspicious when he saw the main gate half open.
Superintendent of Police Jagdish Sharma said the robbery appeared to be the work of a criminal tribe.
