A middle-aged couple were smothered, their bodies stuffed in different suitcases and dumped in a drain by their daughter and her paramour after they refused to hand over their property in outer Delhi's Paschim Vihar, police said on Monday.
The duo hatched the plan to grab a plot of land owned by the elderly couple at Deepak Vihar's Nilothi extension.
Initial investigations by the police revealed that the body of the woman was stuffed in the suitcase and thrown into the drain after killing her.
On March 9, a male body in a decomposed state, also packed in a suitcase was found on the opposite side of the drain where the first body was found. The body was later identified to be that of Singh, police said.
Police brought in Davinder Kaur, Jageer's daughter for questioning and found her statements suspicious and contradictory with the facts and circumstances, the DCP said.
The call records of suspects and the CCTV footage of the area were analyzed and multiple raids conducted, he said.
On further interrogation, Davinder finally confessed to her involvement in the in the murder of her parents.
"So the duo hatched a conspiracy to kill her parents and grab the property," the officer said.
Jageer Kaur left for Jalandhar on February 10 as her father had expired.
"On February 21, the accused intoxicated her father by mixing sleeping pills in his tea. At night, Dixit came to the house with two more people and smothered Gurmeet Singh to death.
"They then packed the body in a suitcase and threw it in a drain near Sayed Nangloi village," he added.
"He came back to Delhi with one of his freinds. The same day, her daughter gave sleeping pills to her mother and once she fell asleep, Kaur was smothered to death by the accused duo who then disposed the body in the same drain after stuffing it inside a suitcase," Kuruvilla said.
