Crime Patrol: Father held for Meerut murder (Episode 229 on 5th Apr 2013)

The Inside Story

ONGC Engineer Arrested for Murdering Daughter in Meerut

Police have arrested a 49-year-old ONGC engineer in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh for the murder of his 22-year-old daughter, Preeti. The arrest came after the man, Bhim Singh, confessed to the crime. Police said that the reason for the murder was Singh's disapproval of Preeti's closeness to Saqib, a classmate of her elder sister, Neha.

Preeti was last seen on Friday, when she was to take some documents to her mother at her workplace. When she failed to turn up, her mother called Neha, who found Preeti's father, Singh, reluctant to let her inside the house. When Neha finally got in, she found Preeti missing. Her body was later found in the bathroom, drowned inside a tub. Singh said that he had attacked Preeti while she was sleeping, and then dragged her to the bathroom to make it appear like an accident.

Police said that Singh's motive was his daughters' disobedience. Neha had married against his wishes but had stayed at home, and Preeti had refused to marry a senior government officer. Singh's relatives had apparently told him that it was a shame that Preeti was planning to marry outside the religion, and that he had to save his honour.
