Peeyush Khandelwal,Ghaziabad: Police arrested a 22-year-old woman from Vasundhara, who was part of a
group that allegedly abducted and murdered a doctor who ran a clinic in the locality.
The tip-off was given by an accused who was recently arrested on charges of murder in a case at Palwal in Haryana.
According to police, Dr Rajesh Gupta went missing in January and was allegedly abducted by accused Manju Jat and her accomplices, Arun, Pradip alias daroga, Ashok Yadav and Sonu Jatav.
“Pradip had earlier visited the doctor’s clinic at Vasundhara and planned the conspiracy to make a fast buck. On the day when the doctor was kidnapped, Manju, Pradip and Arun visited the clinic and asked the doctor to accompany them to see a patient in their family. They took the doctor in a car and asked him to call up his compounder that he would not be visiting the clinic for the day,” said Salmantaj Patil, superintendent of police (SP city).
“Later near Greater Noida, they sedated the doctor by lacing his drink with some substance. They followed the Yamuna Expressway to Shikohabad and reached there in the evening. There, the doctor was asked to call up his family for a ransom amount of Rs 20 lakh. But, after he did not agree to it, he was shot dead by the group members. His body was dumped in a canal later,” the SP said.
The group later got divided into two and also withdrew Rs 37000 from the bank account of the victim through ATMs at different locations.
“When we separated into two, we also called up the victim’s wife from the doctor’s mobile phone and demanded Rs 20 lakh. But she did not oblige. Later, we threw the mobile phone near a railway track in Delhi.
