According to the delhi Police, two cousin brothers were detained on sunday after reportedly murdering a 64-year-old widow and her small daughter in the Krishna nagar neighborhood of east delhi as part of the 'Mission Malamal' scheme to get quick money. The two accused cousin brothers in the case, Kishan, 28, and Ankit Kumar Singh, 25, both from the bihar district of Siwan, have been named. According to the police, Kishan was last seen residing in Delhi's Laxmi nagar neighborhood.
The two are charged with the murders of 64-year-old Rajrani and her daughter Ginni, whose remains were discovered in a decomposed form a few days ago. The brothers were both taken into custody by delhi Police just three days after the crime was committed.
Kishan devised a plot to assassinate the mother-daughter team and steal their money after learning that they had over Rs 50 lakh in their bank accounts. He and his brother, who conducted a reconnaissance of the victim's location, gave the scheme the name "Mission Malamal."
After leaving delhi and taking the money to Lucknow, the two finally returned to delhi and resumed their regular lives until being located and detained by the delhi Police.
