Woman kills 5 members of her family for Lover

A van carrying a couple and three others from Nawada village were pushed into Ganga canal in Badaun on August 25 by the couple’s daughter and her alleged lover, the police said on Sunday. The accused, Preeti (19) and Mugesh alias Sonu (26), wanted to marry but the family was against it as Sonu was already married with two kids, they said.
According to police, on August 25, Raje Bhadane and wife Dharmavati had hired a Maruti Eeco van driven by one Ompal Singh to visit a dargah in Badaun to offer a ‘chadar’. They were accompanied by Raje’s son Lalit, his wife Sheetal, Raje’s daughter Preeti, Lalit’s uncle Rajender and his wife Priti. The seven-member family was also accompanied by another man, Saleem.
However, the bodies of Raje Bhadana, Dharmavati and Priti were recovered from a canal in Narora area in Bulandshahr district later in the day. Raje’s son Lalit, his wife Sheetal and Lalit’s uncle Rajender were found unconscious at a roadside eatery nearly a kilometre away from the spot. The next day, Saleem’s body was also receovered from the canal, while Ompal is still missing.According to police, Preeti and Sonu belonged to the same village and were in a relationship. Both knew each other for the past four years but since Sonu was already married, the family was against their relationship.
SP Abhishek Yadav said that Preeti would pretend to be possessed by a ‘spirit’ and the family would regularly visit the dargah.
This time, Preeti and Sonu planned the murder two-three days before the family left for the shrine. Meanwhile, Sonu also came to the dargah in his vehicle from the village. “After offering a ‘chadar’ at the shrine, the family came out. Preeti then contacted Sonu and they took the family to a nearby eatery on the pretext of buying them soft drinks. They offered the family members a fruit drink mixed with 30 tablets of Alparax,” Yadav said.
While Lalit, Sheetal and Rajender were left there, Sonu and Preeti drove the Eeco to Ganga canal with Raje, Dharmavati, Priti, Ompal and the tantric, Saleem.The duo then pushed the van into the river. “Both raised the front wheels of the vehicle near the canal even while sitting in the car and later pushed the car from behind,” said SP Abhishek Yadav. They then escaped.
The two were arrested from Bulandshahr railway station on Sunday. The wrappers of sleeping pills and a bottle of fruit drink have been recovered.
