4 held for killing farmer

A 50-year-old farmer was allegedly killed over property here, police said on Monday after arresting four people, including the man's nephew and sister-in-law.

The farmer had reportedly married ten times and had no child. He wanted to give away his property to a youth who used to look after him. This reportedly irked two of his relatives, who hatched a conspiracy to kill him with two other men, police said.

Senior Superintendent of Police Rohit Singh Sajwan said Jaganlal Yadav was killed on January 20.

"Police have arrested Munni Devi, the sister-in-law of the deceased, his nephew Darshan Singh, Dev Singh and Prahlad, and sent them to jail. Another accused Kalicharan is absconding," Sajwan said.
