Preliminary investigation into the murder of Rohit of Bakheta village and his fiancee Pooja of Kanheli village here on Wednesday, allegedly by the woman's kin, revealed that the crime had been well-planned and Pooja's uncle Kuldeep hatched the plot and executed it with the help of his kin.

Weapons used to kill couple recovered; hunt on to nab 5th accused

"Kuldeep was unhappy with his niece Pooja's affair with Rohit and was against their marriage. He went to Rohit's house a month and a half ago and told his parents that he wanted Pooja to wed Rohit as decks for her second marriage had been cleared. Kuldeep called Rohit and members of his family to Rohtak on Wednesday on the pretext of getting the marriage registered in court," said DSP Sajjan Singh.

He said Kuldeep, his wife Munni, son Manjit and relative Vikas alias Vicky had been arrested while Kuldeep's other son Kapil was absconding. The weapons used in the crime had been recovered and efforts were underway to ascertain from where these had been procured.

The accused were on Thursday produced in court, which sent them to police remand for three days. More vital information was likely to come out during their remand, he added.

As per reports, Pooja had married a youth of Jatkheri village in Jhajjar district and had been residing at her parental house in Kanheli village after separating from her husband. Rohit and Pooja met through social media.

Rohit's father Krishan stated in the FIR that they waited for Kuldeep and his family at a Rohtak court till 3 pm on Wednesday, but they did not turn up. Kuldeep called them up and asked them to meet him at the Delhi bypass, where he arrived in a car with his wife, son and niece and some others, he reported.

"After talking to us for some time, Kuldeep and his son Kapil opened fire at my sons Mohit and Rohit and Pooja. Mohit suffered injuries in the shootout," he added.
