Indian man arrested for murder in alleged plot to fake own death
The Guardian says an Indian man who tried to fake his death by murdering a builder and passing the body off as his own has been arrested, police said on Monday.
He did it to avoid being tried for another alleged murder, they added – Sudesh Kumar was charged with but not convicted of the 2018 killing of his daughter, who had eloped.
Kumar was released last year as authorities tried to prevent coronavirus outbreaks by reducing the number of inmates in overcrowded prisons.
Police last month found a body in Ghaziabad, on the outskirts of the capital New Delhi, wearing Kumar’s clothes and carrying his ID card.
