We know how much importance movies play in our lives but no one knows in what way people will take them. In a weird incident, five men were arrested on Saturday in a killing case of a 22-year-old woman two years ago. According to the police, probing the case the murder plot was inspired by the 2015 Bollywood film ‘Dhrishyam’ starring Ajay Devgn and Tabbu.
Five men including a BJP leader and his three sons were arrested. Indore Deputy Inspector General (DIG) Harinarayanchari Mishra told reporters that BJP leader Jagdish Karotiya alias Kallu Pahlwan (65), his three sons Ajay (36), Vijay (38), Vinay (31) and their associate Neelesh Kashyap (28) were arrested in connection with the murder of Twinkle Dagre (22), a resident of Banganga area.
He said that Ms Dagre was having a relationship with Jagdish Karotiya which was troubling the latter’s family as the woman wanted to stay with him. The police official said, "Due to family discord, Karotiya and his sons plotted to kill Twinkle Dagre. They strangulated her on October 16, 2016, and later burnt her body."
The police found the bracelet and other ornaments from the place where the victim’s body was burnt, after which 5 were arrested.
"We have come to know that the accused had watched the film Drishyam before planning the murder. Inspired by a movie scene, they buried the body of a dog in one place. They spread the word that someone had buried a human body in this pit," he said.
"When the police dug up the pit, the remains of the dog were recovered. This had misled police investigation," he said.
Mr Mishra said a scientific approach was adopted in order to solve the case and Brain Electrical Oscillation Signature (BEOS) test was conducted on Karotiya and his two sons in a Gujarat laboratory.
This was the first time the BEOS test was conducted in a criminal incident in Indore, he claimed. Further investigation is underway, he said.
