Deal gone awry: Elderly man hired contract killers to kill his wife, becomes their target in Lucknow

An elderly man in Lucknow who had hired contract killers to murder his wife ended up becoming their target himself. The assailants allegedly killed the man after he refused to pay the promised amount for killing his wife. The contract killers fled after killing both the husband and wife and looted the house for valuables. The decomposed bodies of Kallu Neta, 65, and his second wife Firdaus Fatima, 45, were found locked inside their house in Kakori’s Barawankhurd village on Monday evening. The postmortem examination confirmed that the couple was smothered to death at least three days before the recovery of the bodies.

Initially, police suspected the involvement of an insider in the crime but the probe revealed some shocking facts after the arrest of four contract killers. According to the cops, the contract killers revealed that Kallu had himself conspired to kill his wife as he suspected her involvement in some illegal activities. “Musheer, Kallu Takla, Guddu and Saddam, all residents of Kakori have confessed their involvement in the double murder,” said A Satish Ganesh, inspector general (IG) of police Lucknow Zone.

According to a sub-inspector of Kakori police station, the accused alleged that Kallu Neta had promised to give them around ` 1 lakh for killing his wife. Neta also helped them enter the house in the night on March 25 when Firdaus Fatima had slept. However, the accused got annoyed when Neta paid them only ` 40,000 after killing Fatima and asked to pay the remaining amount later. This led to a verbal duel and angry over the issue, the contract killers smothered Neta to death and fled after collecting some valuables from the house. The cops believe the accused are still concealing some crucial facts about the sequence of crime and are further interrogating them to clarify the reason behind Neta’s murder.
