Juhu murder: Cops to question duo, suspect more accomplices

After the Juhu police arrested two accused for robbing and murdering a 50-year-old woman, the police suspect the involvement of more people in the murder. Dilip Mandal, 19, and his brother Shyam, 23, were caught in Haryana and Delhi, respectively. The duo will be produced before a magistrate court in Mumbai on Friday.

Despite being chased by the police, the duo kept their phones active to receive updates on police movements via their friends and media. This helped the police trace their locations. DCP Vinayak Deshmukh said, "We may have arrest one or two more people in the coming days. This can be confirmed only after the brothers are grilled after being brought to Mumbai."

According to officers, Shyam is the main conspirator and was allegedly instructing his brother in plotting the murder. Dilip had spotted the family keeping jewellery inside the cupboards after attending a family wedding a few days ago and informed Shyam. The police believe that Dilip and one or two other accomplices strangulated the lady after which he handed over a large part of the booty to Shyam. The suspects are also believed to be domestic helps working in the same building with whom the accused were in constant touch with.

The deceased, Minoti Parikh was allegedly robbed and strangled on the third floor of her residence in Guru Kripa building in JVPD on Monday. Dilip fled with Rs1 lakh, and diamonds and gold worth Rs33.5 lakh after committing the murder. Her husband Ajay and their daughter were at work during that time. Parikh's son and daughter-in-law live in another building in the same area.
