With the arrest of three men today, the district police claimed to have solved the triple murder case reported from Bharau village under the Raya police station over a week ago.
"Three accused were nabbed today, while a hunt for two more -- Kali Charan and Bhago Devi -- is on," Superintendent of Police (SP), Rural, Aditya Kumar Shukla said.
Acting on a tip-off, Chandan Singh, Anil and Gajraj -- all residents of Bharau village -- were nabbed from the Raya cut on the Yamuna Expressway, the SP added.
He said while Sundar Singh (45) was killed in connection with a dispute over his 12-bigha land, former village head Satya Prakash (72) was killed as Gajraj, the representative of the current village head, wanted to dispossess him of a 13-bigha land of the Gram Samaj.
According to Shukla, retired army personnel Bhanvar Singh (55) was killed as he was demanding that Anil returned the Rs 1 lakh he had taken from him.
All three victims were shot dead on the intervening night of June 18 and 19, when they were sleeping at a distance of about 500 metres from each other.
