The murder case of four-year-old Manpreet Kaur took a shocking turn on Monday when the investigations revealed that accused Manoj Kumar kidnapped and murdered the girl with the help of Sunita, mother of the child.

Both the accused have confessed to the crime.

The police officers were shocked when Manoj, the main accused, confessed that he committed the crime in connivance with the victim's mother.

She admitted that she abducted and killed her own daughter to extort Rs 5 lakh from her husband Gurpreet Singh. Both were arrested by the police.

Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (ADCP) city-1 Nilambari Jagdale said Manoj, a resident of Kishan Gunj of Bihar, had illicit relations with Sunita when he lived as a tenant in their Amarpura area.

Gurpreet Singh, husband of Sunita, threw Manoj out of the house and also shifted from Amarpura to Jagatpuri.

Police said that Sunita had already told about her affair to Gurpreet and demanded Rs 5 lakh for leaving him but he refused to give money.

"On November 23, Manoj Kumar took the child and made a ransom call to Gurpreet Singh who in turn called the police," said the ADCP.

The accused drowned the child in a tubewell and dumped the body in a vacant plot which was found on late Sunday evening by the police.

Gurpreet married Sunita five years ago and Manpreet was born. Earlier, Sunita had three marriages and she divorced all three husbands.

In a shocking case, a woman and her paramour allegedly murdered her four-year-old daughter after their plan to extort Rs 5 lakh from her husband went awry.


Police cracked the case after a girl's body was recovered in Alamgir village. On investigation, they discovered the body was that of Manpreet Kaur, who had recently been kidnapped by her neighbour, Manoj Kumar, a labourer.

Police said on being arrested, Manoj revealed that he in connivance with his paramour Sunita, who is Manpreet's mother, killed the girl. Acting on Kumar's information, police arrested Sunita, who also confessed to her crime, the police claimed.

Giving details, additional deputy commissioner of police (ADCP) City 1 Nilambari Jagdale said Manoj, hailing from Kishan Gunj of Bihar, had illicit relations with Sunita during his stay as a tenant at her house in Amarpura area.

When her husband, Gurpreet Singh, a chemicals' trader, came to know about their illicit relations, he evicted Manoj from their house. Gurpreet later sold the house for Rs 15 lakh, and bought another one in Janakpuri area for `10 lakh.

The ADCP said Sunita cleared her intentions before Gurpreet that she wanted to leave him and spend her life with Manoj, and demanded Rs 5 lakh from him. However, Gurpreet refused her demand.

“In a fit of pique, Sunita and Manoj hatched a conspiracy to kidnap her daughter Manpreet to extort money from Gurpreet. On November 23, Manoj kidnapped Manpreet from her house, and made a call to Gurpreet informing him that his daughter was him. Thereafter, Gurpreet approached the police and registered a case of kidnapping against Manoj,” the ADCP added.

“Meanwhile, the accused got alerted that police had initiated investigation into the kidnapping case, and decided to kill Manpreet. Manoj then took Manpreet to Alamgir and drowned her in a pond. He then dumped the body on a vacant plot, before fleeing,” she added.

The police recovered the body on Sunday after information from residents of Alamgir village, and later arrested Manoj, and Sunita, following his statement.

The ADCP said Sunita married Gurpreet around five years ago and they had one daughter Manpreet from the marriage. It was Sunita's fourth marriage after she divorced her previous husbands. She has a 14-year-old daughter and eight-year-old son from previous marriages.

Jagdale added that Sunita was aware of Gurpreet's affection for his daughter and therefore figured kidnapping Manpreet would be the easiest way to extort money from him.
