Ghaziabad, Apr 7: The Uttar Pradesh police has finally solved the mystery behind the man who went missing around three-and-a-half months back from Gyaspur village in Ghaziabad. Four persons have been nabbed in connection with his alleged kidnapping and beheading.

An FIR in the case was lodged on March 18 by the Ajit Kumar, who is the brother of the missing man. In his complaint, he alleged that Bobby went missing on December 19 when he had gone to Choubli village in the Chapruli town of Baghpat district with another person, Pradeep, of the same village.

After the complaint was filed, the SSP said, the police launched an investigation and nabbed four people — Pradeep, Shushil, Manoj and Baburam — on Thursday.

During interrogation, Pradeep confessed that he wanted to eliminate Bobby due to some old enmity with his family. The accused had allegedly given Bobby alcoholic drink before beheading him with a spade, they said.

As per his plan, Pradeep took Bobby with him at his brother-in-law’s house, where he was given the alcoholic drink and beheaded. The accused then buried the body and the head of the deceased in two separate pits in sugarcane fields and looted Rs 15,000 cash and the motorbike from him.

The police reached the field on the information shared by Pradeep. The team has recovered the deceased’s skull, clothes, looted cash, motorbike and also the spade which was used in the alleged crime.

The deceased was identified by the family after they saw his teeth. Meanwhile, all the accused have been sent to the jail.
