Accused alleges that her father used to make inappropriate advances towards her

In a gruesome case of murder, a 23-year-old woman not only killed her father but also ripped open his chest to remove the pacemaker to ensure that he was dead. The incident took place at Rajouri Garden in West Delhi late last month. The woman was assisted by her two male friends during the crime.

The accused woman, identified as Kulvinder Kaur, was arrested along with her accomplices on Monday. She alleged that her father used to make inappropriate advances towards her.

“Kulvinder Kaur killed her father Daljeet Singh (56) on the intervening night of April 29 and 30 with the help of two of her friends Prince Sandhu (22) and Ashok Sharma alias Manish alias Goku (23). The trio has been arrested by the Khyala police,” said Additional Commissioner of Police (West) Ranvir Singh.

According to the police, on the night of the incident, Kulvinder Kaur opened the door of her house to Sandhu and Sharma. They then overpowered Daljeet Singh and attacked him with a cricket stump in his sleep.

“After killing Daljeet, the trio ripped open his chest and pulled out the pacemaker from his heart to make sure he was dead. After ensuring his death, they tied his legs and neck with a cable, put him in an Innova car and then dumped the body in a canal in Khayala, West Delhi. The body was discovered by the police the following morning,” said a police officer.

It then took the police two to three days to identify the body. Once the accused came to know that the body was identified they parked the Innova at some deserted place in Uttam Nagar.

After the police established the identity of the deceased, they got to know that he worked as driver with a travel agency and lived with his youngest unmarried daughter Kulvinder Kaur. His wife had died three years ago, while his other two daughters are married.

“When the police questioned Kulvinder in this regard, she initially tried to hoodwink them by saying that her father had left home on April 30 at 5 a.m. for a tour. This information later turned out to be false. On cross examination, she confessed to her involvement in the murder of her father along with her two friends,” added the officer.

She claimed that she killed her father because she was repeatedly being assaulted by him after the death of her mother three years ago, the police said.

She allegedly also told the police that while the two friends had gone out to dump the body, she remained at home and tried to clean the house and blood stains. Forensic experts have detected blood at various places in the room. “At her instance, the blood-stained weapon and clothes were also recovered,” added the official.
