The Inside Story

Transport Agent Fakes His Own Murder To Frame Wife and In-Laws

Sohan Lal, a small-time transport agent from Hodal in Haryana, recently confessed to faking his own murder and framing his wife and in-laws. He suspected that his wife was having an affair with a distant cousin and plotted his revenge by getting into an illicit relationship with his minor sister-in-law, eloping with her, and murdering an innocent man. He planted his ID on the body, passed it off as his own, and got his wife and her family arrested on charges of murder.

Lal drove around Delhi, Faridabad, Hodal, and Palwal for 10 days to identify the "perfect victim" who had a similar age, build, and height as him. He found a drunk young man lying under the Bata Chowk Flyover at Faridabad and killed him. He then threw the body into the Palwal canal after disfiguring it. His sister-in-law knew about his plans and eloped with him after the murder.

The police have now registered a case of murder against Lal, and all other accused, including co-accused Chandan, are absconding. Lal's wife and her family were arrested on charges of murder based on circumstantial evidence and are in jail. Lal's minor sister-in-law is also with the police. The Haryana police is conducting raids to nab the accused who are on the run.
