Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh, Oct 4 (UNI) Three people, including two brothers, have been arrested in connection of a brutal murder of a woman here, police said today.
Superintendent of Police Vivekanand Sinha told mediapersons that Bhilai-resident Mamata Thakur was murdered and axed in two parts on August 23. Her headless body was thrown at railway line and her head sealed in a sack in local Arpa river.
Mamata, who arrived here to attend 'terehanvi' of her friend Bindi Singh, was found missing on the same date. After a long investigation, police found Bindi's father Bhagwan Singh, brothers Ravinder Singh, Bhagwat Singh and neighbour Krishan Kumar involved in the crime.
Bindi was allegedly killed in a road mishap at Bhilai in August but her family hold Mamata responsible for her death as she was a close confidant of former.
Hence, they killed Mamata when she arrived here for Bindi's last rituals.
Bindi extracted Rs 7 lakh from several youth in Bhilai in the name of providing teachers job to them.
Bhagwan Singh was absconding, police added.
