In Agra’s Ramraghu Exotica Colony (Tajganj), the wife and father-in-law of the deceased bank manager Sachin Upadhyay, who is a prime suspect in his murder, are currently on the run.
The police investigation has revealed several puzzling details. In the room where the husband’s body was found, the wife had prepared a large amount of food, including Kadhi, rice, and 16 rotis, to avoid suspicion.
Furthermore, on October 12, she twice spoke to her father, who is the president of the Collectorate Bar Association, after requesting a mobile phone from the neighbor. The nature of these conversations will likely become clear after Priyanka’s arrest.
According to the post-mortem report and police findings, Sachin Upadhyay was murdered on the night of October 11.
On the evening of October 12, a dramatic scene unfolded when the police were informed of a suicide, and it was discovered that the body had been concealed in the room for about 17 hours, and evidence had been tampered with.
Priyanka, the daughter-in-law, was actively involved in these actions. Also, her father-in-law, Brajendra Rawat, was a part of this conspiracy.
Sachin Upadhyay was strangled to death, and his body was set on fire before the police were notified. The case raises questions about who strangled Sachin and how the body was burned. The investigation is expected to focus on these critical details.
Sachin’s family alleges that the police are under pressure due to the influential status of the accused, Brajendra Rawat, who serves as the president of the Collectorate Bar Association.
They believe that if it were a case involving someone less influential, all three accused would have been arrested immediately. The police initially filed a dowry harassment case before registering a murder case.
DCP Suraj Kumar Rai revealed that there was evidence of tampering at the crime scene before the police were informed. Crucial evidence had been destroyed, and a charge of Section 201 (causing disappearance of evidence) has been added to the case.
A forensic team had conducted an inspection at the scene, revealing a broken pipe in the bathroom and damaged bangles. Several items were also found broken.
Sachin had a six-year-old son and a three-year-old daughter who were present at the time of the incident. However, they are too young to provide any information. The investigation will require further scrutiny of the crime scene. The forensic team is being tasked to determine the cause of death, as well as to address the concerns surrounding the burned body and damaged evidence.
