Customs Superintendent, Contract Killer and Deceased’s Wife Arrested for Murder

On November 2, the Harmara police found a skeleton near Sewapura village which they believed to be of a missing constable of the customs department. The police identified the deceased as Mahendra Meena on the basis of an identity card found at the spot. While planning for a DNA test, they stumbled upon some alarming clues that helped them crack the case.

The police arrested three people including a customs superintendent posted at Jaipur, a contract killer, and the wife of the deceased. The investigation revealed that the deceased's wife Santosh had lodged a missing complaint on May 9, the day when he "went missing" and had mentioned a mobile number belonging to Kailash Meena, who is a customs superintendent posted in Jaipur. This became a major suspicion and was sufficient to nab Kailash Meena.

Kailash and Ali had gone to the spot where they buried the deceased, dug out the decomposed body, and placed an identity card in the pocket to prove the identity, in a bid to get Mahendra's widow pension. This overconfidence did them in and they were caught. Ali and Kailash were booked for murder, while Santosh was arrested on charges of criminal conspiracy.
