New Delhi, May 25
Days after two defendants were arrested for allegedly killing a Haryanvi singer, an inquest found she was given 10 sleeping pills before she was strangled, sources said on Wednesday.
Ravi and Anil, who were arrested in Meham on Saturday, said they hatched a plot to kill the singer. The body of Sangeeta alias Divya, missing since May 11, was found buried in Meham, Haryana on Sunday.
His family members reside in the Jaffarpur Kalan area of Delhi and had reported the matter to the police on May 14.
“Interrogation revealed that Ravi was the mastermind behind the incident. On his instructions, Anil came to Delhi, took the victim in a car and gave him 10 sleeping pills in sugarcane juice on his way back to Meham .
“They also had a meal at Gulati Dhabha in Kalanaur in Haryana. When he reached Meham, Ravi joined him and strangled the woman who was lying unconscious. Ravi also checked whether the victim was dead or not. Later they buried the body in Meham area,” sources said.
The sources further said that Anil told Ravi that he cannot kill the woman after which he was asked to take her from the nation’s capital.
Police said preliminary investigations revealed the incident took place because of a strained relationship with the accused.
Sangeeta’s brother said she would have turned 29 on Wednesday.
