Aligarh, Feb 22: The 24-year-old son of a jeweller allegedly murdered his mother and looted valuables worth over Rs one crore from her house in the Saroj Nagar Colony of Aligarh

The accused, Yogesh, and his three associates, including two women, were arrested on Sunday and the stolen gold, diamond and silver jewellery was recovered from them.

According to the police, jeweller Kuldeep Verma's son Yogesh, a commerce graduate, was living separately in a rented accommodation for the past six months after he tied a knot with a married woman, Sonam, against his parents' wishes. He was also jobless.

He had asked his mother Kanchan for money on several occasions but she refused.

Facing financial issues, Yogesh chalked a plan to loot his own house. His wife, Sonam, friend, Tanuj Chaudhary and Tanuj's girlfriend, Shehjal Chauhan, were all part of the plot.

On Friday, Yogesh first dropped his pregnant wife at a doctor's clinic for a check-up and then went to his parents' house with Tanuj and Shehjal. While they dropped Shehjal a few metres away from the house to keep an eye outside, Yogesh and Tanuj went inside after Kanchan opened the door for her son.

During interrogation, Yogesh confessed that he told his mother that he had come to pick his clothes and then strangled her with her saree. They later dragged her body to the bathroom and cut a geyser pipe to make it look like an accident.

An unconscious Kanchan was found in the bathroom by a neighbour, who called on her and found the main door open.

She immediately informed the police who took her to hospital, where she was declared brought dead.

Kanchan's husband, Kuldeep Verma, was in his shop at the time of the incident.

Circle officer (CO) Anil Samaniya told reporters that Yogesh had confessed to his crime and the looted jewellery worth Rs one crore along with Rs one lakh cash has been recovered from them.

The CO said that the cutter used to cut a locker has also been recovered. He added that they all were booked under IPC sections 302 (murder), 394 (voluntarily causing hurt in committing robbery), 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence), 411 (dishonestly receiving stolen property) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).

The incident occurred around 10 pm on Friday at Banwar village under Nohata police station area after a dispute among the attendees of the function, Damoh Superintendent of Police Hemant Chouhan said.

As per initial investigation, one of the deceased Jogendra Singh (30) died of a gunshot while another deceased Arvind Jain was beaten to death by some persons with stones and sticks, the SP said.

Sources said Jain was a representative of the MLA at the function while Singh was a guest teacher. On the other hand, Damoh district Congress president Ajay Tandon accused the police of failure in maintaining the law and order.

"The incident occurred in the birthday party of BJP MLA Dharmendra Singh Lodhi at a time when the district is under high security due to the arrival of President Ram Nath Kovind," Tandon said.

President Kovind is on a two-day visit to Madhya Pradesh beginning Saturday. He is scheduled to arrive in Jalhari village in Damoh district at 9.30 am on Sunday, from where he will go to Sangrampur village to attend 'Janjatiya Sammelan' organised by MP Tribal Welfare Department.

While the BJP MLA could not be reached for reaction, state BJP secretary Rajneesh Agrawal said he was unaware of the incident. "The incident has nothing to do with the BJP. The law will take its own course," he said.

New Delhi, Feb 22: Delhi Police Crime Branch on Monday arrested Jaspreet Singh, who was seen climbing one of the tombs located at both sides of the rampart at Red Fort during the violence on Republic Day.

Singh, 29, was also seen using an offensive gesture holding steel tensile installed at the Red Fort.

The accused is a resident of Swaroop Nagar, New Delhi.

Last week, the Delhi Police Special Cell arrested Maninder Singh, one of the most wanted people in the Red Fort violence case, which happened on January 26.

The Delhi Police informed that two 4.3 feet swords were recovered from his house in Swaroop Nagar. Besides, a long video showing him swinging swords at Red Fort on January 26 has been found on his mobile phone.

The Delhi Police Special Cell had arrested actor-turned-activist Deep Sidhu on February 9, who was allegedly the main instigator in the January 26 violence in the national capital.

On Republic Day, protestors did not follow the prearranged route and broke barricades to enter Delhi, clashed with police, and vandalised property in several parts of the national capital during the farmers' tractor rally. They also entered the Red Fort and unfurled their flags from its ramparts.

Farmers have been protesting at the different borders of the national capital since November 26 last year against the three newly enacted farm laws: Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020; the Farmers Empowerment and Protection) Agreement on Price Assurance and Farm Services Act 2020 and the Essential Commodities (Amendment) Act, 2020.
