Ludhiana, June 11
The city police have cracked the blind murder case of a woman, Ranju Devi (38), whose body was recently found near Sahnewal village. The accused have been identified as Dalip Kumar and his son Deepak Kumar, residents of New Smart Colony, Gaispura.
While addressing a press conference, ADCP Jaskiranjit Singh Teja said on June 8, the badly-injured body of the woman wrapped in a sack was found in Rudra Colony.
The ADCP said during the investigation, it was revealed that the deceased had extramarital affair with Dalip in the past but now they were not in good terms.
“Ranju was forcing Dalip to pay her monthly expenses but he was not able to arrange the money, so he decided to kill her,” the ADCP said.
On June 7, Dalip called Ranju at his home where he along with his son strangulated her to death. After killing her, they slit her throat and damaged her private parts. Both the accused then dumped the body in Rudra Colony. — TNS
