Police reportedly solved the mystery surrounding the case of nine dead bodies found in a well in Telangana’s Warangal district on Sunday. The arrest of four accused. Main accused Sanjay Kumar Jha from Bihar and three others have owned up killing the nine, all of which were migrants from West Bengal, Bihar and Tripura.
They allegedly offered soft drinks spiked with sedatives to the victims and pushed them into the well. According to police sources the accused were likely to be presented before the media on Monday.
Cropses of Mohammed Maqsood Alam and four members of family were recovered from the well at Gorrekunta village near Warangal town on Thursday. The next day bodies of two more family members of Maqsood and two men from Bihar and one from Tripura were also recovered from the same place.
The dead were identified as Maqsood (55), from West Bengal working in gunny bag manufacturing unit in Warangal for last 20 years, his wife Nisha (48), daughter Bushra Khatoon (22), sons Shabaaz Alam (20), Sohail Alam (18) and Bushra's three-year-old son.
The dead bodies of Sriram Kumar Shah (26), Shyam Kumar Shah (21), both from Bihar and Mohammed Shakeel (40) from Tripura were also found in the well. They were all workers in the same gunny bag manufacturing unit.
Sanjay Kumar, who also worked at the same gunny bag unit, allegedly was in a relationship with Bushra, who had left her husband and was staying with her parents.
The main accused had grudge against Maqsood's family as the relationship was stopped recently. Since two Bihari youth and another man from Tripura had moved closely to Maqsood's family, he planned to murder all with the help of two friends from Bihar and a local youth, who also had some grudge against the same family.
They made a plan and executed it when Maqsood gave a party at his house on the day of his son's birthday. They served soft drinks spiked with sedatives to the victims and then dumped the bodies in the well.
Several teams put together by Warangal police made every efforts to gather evidence in the case, which was proving to be a challenge for the investigators.
Dead bodies of all nine are kept at Mahatma Gandhi Hospital (MGH) at Warangal after an autopsy.
The district officials stated that if nobody comes to claim the bodies, they will arrange the last rites.
