Son of RSS leader held for double murder, police say property dispute prime motive

The 42-year-old son of an RSS leader was arrested on Monday in the double-murder case of his father and his sister in Amroha city of Uttar Pradesh.

The Superintendent of Police, Kunwar Anupam Singh said in a statement that Ishank Agarwal, son of Yogesh Chand Agarwal, has confessed to killing his father and adopted sister Srishti, reports Indian Express newspaper.

"Yogesh told police that he committed the murders over property dispute as his father had registered half of his property in the name of Srishti,” Singh said.

Police also said that after the murder, Ishank registered a false complaint blaming unidentified attackers for the double murder. He stated in his complaint that he and his wife had dinner with his father and Srishti on the night of February 9 and went to sleep in his room on the first floor while his father and sister lived on the ground floor.

“Earlier, he also told police that neither he nor his wife could hear any voice that night when the murders allegedly took place,” police said.

But as the probe team found evidence of attempts made to wipe out blood stains from the room where the two were found killed, police got suspicious of Ishank’s involvement in the murder.

Singh further said, “The throats of Yogesh Chand Agarwal and Srishti were slit with a sharp weapon. We found blood stains on the staircase leading to the first floor, where Ishank and his wife claimed they were sleeping at the time of the incident. There were 15 CCTV cameras installed in the house, but none were working. These all things made us suspicious that anyone close to the family could be the killer. We detained Ishank and on questioning, he confessed to killing his father and Srishti."
