The Inside Story
LUCKNOW: Three of the six accused of killing a senior citizen couple in Nagram between the intervening night of March 13 and 14 were arrested on Tuesday. Those nabbed identified themselves as Tinna, Shivlal and Malti Devi.

The three along with two others whom they identified as Rajendra, Kailash and Satyanarain had killed Hardwari Lal and his wife Umaria. During the interrogation from the three nabbed, it came to light that it was Malti who had schemed the crime.

Malti told police that Hardwari Lal was Malti's brother-in-law and ten days before his death had transferred his plot in the village in the name of Malti's husband and victim's step-brother, Molahe. The victims had no children. In between the period of his transferring his land in the name of Molahe and his death, Hardwari Lal met one Dayaram who was friends with the victim. Dayaram was also close to the victim so Hardwari Lal also promised him a share in the land which he had transferred to his step-brother.

This conversation was heard by Malti who thought that if Lal gives Dayaram a share in his land, Molahe and his family would have to bear the loss. Hence, she plotted the double murder. For committing the crime, Malti approached his brother, Tinna who had twenty criminal cases already lodged against him in Mohanlalganj police station.

Tinna agreed to help her sister out and he along with three others killed the old couple with a chopper. Apart from Tinna, Rajendra had nine cases against him followed by Kailash who has three and Shivlal has one.

The three culprits were nabbed only after police came to know that they were seen near the scene of crime on the day it was committed. Police were now hunting for the remaining accomplices.
