Taking a cue from the famous thriller movie ‘Drishyam’, a man from Delhi orchestrated an attack on himself as he wanted to frame his neighbour. The accused, who was recently released on parole for murdering the neighbour’s mother on June 29, followed the plot of the movie but could not succeed.
The accused has been identified as Amarpal. A resident of Majnu Ka Tila, Amarpal had a rivalry with his neighbour Ombir’s family. Reportedly, Ombir’s mother and Amarpal had an argument on June 29, following which, he had murdered her.
Amarpal was later arrested in relation to the case and was sent to prison. However, he had recently stepped out on interim bail for 60 days. After being released, the accused allegedly tried to pressure his witnesses. When the witnesses refused to change their minds, the accused took the decision of framing his neighbour.
Helped by his brother Guddu and cousin Ali, the accused showed them Drishyam and they took the decision of recreating scenes to come out as innocent, Outlook India reported. The accused then started convincing people that Ombir’s family had been threatening him.
Amarpal then arranged a country-made pistol along with bullet pellets to avoid the risk of an actual injury. Later, Amarpal also asked his brother-in-law Manish for help. As per plan, Anil would shoot at Amarpal – who will tell the cops that Ombir and his kin had attacked.
The accused went to the Khyber Pass in Delhi and spent over an hour there. Following this, Anil, Guddu and Manish reached the spot and shots were fired at Amarpal. The accused fled the spot after the incident and Amarpal went to a friend’s house – and alleged that his enemies had tried to kill him.
A probe, however, unearthed the reality and Amarpal was arrested with Anil. The other two accused have not been nabbed yet.
