NEW DELHI: The uncle of a young woman has been arrested along with two accomplices on charges of killing her, her husband and her two-year-old sister after abducting them from Rohini here on April 9. Praveen Kumar (24), his wife Vibha (23) and her sister Vaishali went missing after they went to attend a function at the residence of her uncle Amreek Singh at Mangolpur Kalan. Investigations led the police to zero in on Amreek and they arrested him and his alleged accomplice Sandeep Kumar from Mussoorie in Uttarakhand. Two pistols along with live cartridges were purportedly seized from him. During interrogation, Amreek purportedly disclosed that he murdered Vibha and Vaishali as he wanted to grab the property of his late brother Lokpal, who had three daughters, the third one being Rashna. He also held a grudge against Vibha as she had eloped with Praveen and got married. Amreek also felt that she was responsible for his brother’s death, the police said, and so he murdered her along with her husband, sister.
