Telangana: Mass murders mystery solved; 26 year-old man heldby P Pavan
Hyderabad: Telangana's Warangal police cracked the mystery over the most sensational multiple murders of migrant workers.
One youth from Bihar is said to have killed nine persons by mixing sleeping pills in their food, to escape getting caught for killing another woman earlier. In all, Sanjay kumar Yadav killed ten persons.
It may be recalled that nine persons including two women and a child, were found lying dead in an abandoned well near a gunny bags' company in Gorrekunta village of Geesukonda block . Four bodies were retrieved from the well on May 20 and five others on the next day. Of the nine, six belonged to the same family and two were from Bihar and the other was a local youth.
According to Warangal police commissioner V Ravinder, Sanjay, who had migrated to this place five years ago, entered into a relationship with the niece of Nisha, the wife of 46 years old Maqsood, the head of the family. The woman had three children and came to Warangal after separating from her husband. She was also working in the same gunny bags company along with Maqsood and Nisha. She was initially making some money by cooking food for Sanjay. They later developed intimacy and began living together with the children.
Sanjay later began making advances with her daughter, who was 15. The woman objected and insisted on marriage immediately so that her daughter would be safe. On March 7, Sanjay proposed that they both go to Kolkata to convince the elders and get married. On the way in the train, he allegedly mixed sleeping pills in buttermilk and offered to her. After she fell asleep, he strangulated her with her dupatta and dumped the body along the railway tracks near Tadepalligudem in West Godavari district. He got down at Rajahmundry station in East Godavari district and returned to Warangal.
Nisha grew suspicious about his story that the woman stayed back in Kolkata. Her enquiries revealed that she had not come to Kolkata at all.
Nisha and her family members threatened Sanjay with lodging a police complaint. Sanjay hatched a plan to escape by killing the family. He bought sleeping pills on May 18 and was ready to execute the plan.
On May 20, he came when they all were sitting in the open after cooking their supper.
He went inside and mixed the pills in the food and came out. He also went to the other room, where two Bihar youths stay and did the same.
They all had dinner and went to bed. Sanjay woke up in the midnight and found that all were in deep sleep. He picked up gunny bags and dragged one after another to the well and dumped them inside. The process went on from 12.30 midnight to 5.30am. He then picked up the provisions the Maqsood family had bought the previous day and went back to his house.
The police formed six teams to crack the mystery.
The teams got the crucial clue of Sanjay coming to Maqsood's premises at 6.30pm on May 20 and leaving at 5.30am the next day.
