Karnataka: Stepmom arrested in youth’s murder case | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: The stepmother of 28-year-old Siddarth Devender Singh — former chief minister Dharam Singh’s relative who was found murdered — has been arrested in connection with the case.
Indu Chauhan, who is from Chennai, was picked up from Siddharth’s apartment in Dasarahalli, from where he went missing last month. Amruthahalli police suspect Chauhan, in her late 40s, played a vital role in the kidnap and murder of Siddarth, who had an MBA-finance degree from New York.
Siddharth’s decomposed body was exhumed from Rapore forest in Nellore, Andhra Pradesh. One of the suspected assailants, Shaym Sundar Reddy, was found hanging, while another suspect, Vinod, was saved by the public when he tried to jump before a train in Tirupati, police said.
Now, Siddharth’s father Devender Singh has filed another complaint with Amruthahalli police, saying two youths kidnapped his son during the intervening night of January 19 and January 20. “First, I had filed a missing person’s complaint. After enquiring with the security guard of our apartment, I found two youths kidnapped my son by forcibly pushing him inside a car,” he told police.
Siddharth lived in Stay Aboda Coleman apartment in Dasarahalli. “Recently, Chauhan visited the apartment and wished to live there. Siddharth opposed her plans and they fought over the issue. Devender intervened and pacified them. Latest investigation reports show Chauhan was in touch with Reddy and his associate Vinod. She gave them huge amounts of money. More details will emerge in a day or two,” an investigating officer said.
