Madhya Pradesh: Dewas police Crack High-profile Murder Case, 5 Held

DEWAS: The Dewas police claim to have solved a high-profile murder case of a property dealer. Around 5 have been arrested in the case. Those who were arrested include the key conspirator Shyamlal Kumawat (44), Sanjay Kharol (37), Jitendra Singh (36), Kaluram Verma (36), all residents of Bhoransa village, and Akhilesh Prajapat (36), a resident of Ashta village in Sehore district.

Dewas police on February 13 found property dealer Mahendra (47), son of Narayan Patel dead on Bhopal Road. Initially, it seemed to be a road accident as the accused tried to cover up their crime creating the entire incident as an accident. However, a police investigation foiled their bid. During the course of the investigation, the team scanned video footage they got from more than 1200 CCTV cameras.

Interacting with the media, Dewas SP Dr. Shivdayal Singh said that police on February 13 found Mahendra Patel dead between Khatamba and Jamgod village on Bhopal Road. Two loading vehicles hit Mahendra from the rear on Bhopal Road with the intention to kill him.

Acussed Shyamlal confessed that he got the idea after watching ‘Crime Patrol’. The main accused Shyam Kumawat informed police that he executed the murder by hiring contract killers as he had a property dispute with Mahendra. The accused added that the entire murder conspiracy was hatched by watching Crime Patrol and other crime serials.
