A BJP leader and his sons were arrested on Saturday for allegedly killing a 22-year-old woman two years ago in Indore.
The police arrested five people including the BJP leader and his three sons. The accused were inspired by the 2015 Bollywood film ‘Drishyam’ starring Ajay Devgn, the police claims.
Harinarayanchari Mishra, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) informed the media that BJP leader Jagdish Karotiya alias Kallu Pahlwan (65), his three sons Ajay (36), Vijay (38), Vinay (31) and their associate Neelesh Kashyap (28) were arrested in connection with the murder of Twinkle Dagre (22), a resident of Banganga area, PTI reports.
The police said that Dagre was allegedly in an illicit relationship with Jagdish Karotiya and wanted to stay with him, this was causing trouble in Karotiya family.
“Due to family discord, Karotiya and his sons plotted to kill Twinkle Dagre. They strangulated her on October 16, 2016, and later burnt her body, “the DIG said.
According to Mishra, the Brain Electrical Oscillation Signature (BEOS) test was conducted on Karotiya and his two sons in a Gujarat laboratory. BEOS profiling is a non-invasive, neuro-psychological technique of interrogation in which a suspect’s participation in crime is detected by eliciting electrophysiological impulses.
Police said the the the killers have watched the film Drishyam before planning the murder and to mislead the police they buried a dog in one pit and had spread the word that someone had buried a human body.
