Blind couple found murdered, tenant missing

SR | New Delhi

A blind couple was strangled to death in their double-storey residence in
Vivek Vihar area of East district on Tuesday. 

Cash and jewellery worth of lakhs of rupees are missing from the spot. The
prime suspect, tenant of the deceased, is absconding. Police said the tenant

A senior police official said, "We received a call from neighbours on
Tuesday morning. The deceased have been identified as Rajendra Verma (52)
and Shobha Verma (50). Rajendra Verma had opted for a voluntary retirement
from JNU. The bodies have been sent for post-mortem." 

Additional DCP (East) DK Gupta said, "Prima facie, it seems to be a case of
loot. The key suspect in the case are deceased's tenant and his associate,
who are absconding from the scene after the incident. Both are natives of
Uttar Pradesh. Teams have been formed and investigation is on to nab the

The couple stayed in house number 137, Janta flat of Vivek Vihar while their
tenant stayed on the first floor. They had been living there since July 17
this year. The tenants were introduced to the couple by Sushma, a neighbour
of the deceased. 

The deceased had three daughters identified as Hema (19), Leena (20) and
Neena (22). All three are blind and married. "On Tuesday morning, I made a
call to my parents. Despite several attempts when no answer was received, I
made a call to Satya Devi, a neighbour of my parents. I told her to convey
my message to my parents. When Satya Devi reached my parent's residence, she
found their bodies and raised an alarm. Police was informed," said Hema. 

One of the suspects identified as Ashwini, who works at a call centre in
Noida, was spotted by residents around 1 am smoking but was not seen after

An amount of `50,000 and some jewellery was found missing from the house,
