RAJKOT: A 40-year-old widow was arrested for hiring a contract killer to bump off her sons who objected to her second marriage.
According to the police, Kundan Dobariya, a resident of Khirsara village in Jetpur taluka of Rajkot, started selling liquor after the death of her husband, Jayantibhai, three years ago. She fell in love with one of her customers, Ravat Khuman, 30, who is from the same village. But her sons, Vijay and Ashok, were not ready to accept their mother's new relationship. "So, she conspired to kill them," said the police.
According to Premvir Singh, SP, Rajkot rural, the murders came to light when inquiries were done in connection to the discovery of an unidentified man's half-naked body on the banks of a river near the village on November 29. When the cops asked about people missing from the area, they found that Vijay Dobariya of Khirsara village was missing since the last fortnight. They were surprised that his mother had not filed a missing complaint and suspected of something fishy.
When Kundan was called in for questioning, she confessed to her role in the murder of not only Vijay but also of Ashok, who went missing six months ago.
She had hatched a plot with her lover Ravat. On November 24, they had a 'bhajiya' party at her house where Ravat and a labourer, Dinesh Babariya, 28, a native of Islampura in Sami taluka of Patan district, drank liquor. Since it was midnight, when the party ended, Vijay offered to drop them on his motorcycle.
Half-way through, Dinesh asked that he be dropped there itself as he wanted to walk the rest of the distance. "Dinesh then stabbed Vijay from the back and buried his body near Surva River," Premvir Singh said.
Police said that Dinesh confessed that they killed Ashok the same way. He said he received Rs 5,000 for each murder. Ashok's body was found by the riverside on August 27, 2011, but the identity could not be established then and the case had remained unsolved.
