A taxi driver was arrested on Thursday for killing a pregnant woman and her five-year-old son, police said in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh.
His accomplice in the murder was found dead at his home on Wednesday, they said.
The accused, a relative of the woman, Shikha, killed her in revenge after her husband called him a “thief”, police said.
“We have arrested a certain Harish for the murder of Shikha, wife of Sandeep Kumar, and their five-year-old son Rushank. Harish drives a taxi and is a distant relative of Sandeep,” Chief Superintendent of Police Rohit Singh Sajwan said.
According to police, Harish had recently been called a thief by Sandeep at a wedding, and since then he had been plotting to hurt him.
He got his revenge with the help of a Ravi, when they killed his wife and son on Tuesday.
The two men also stole jewelry and cash from the home to make it look like theft, police said.
Ravi committed suicide at his home the following day.
According to the police, before killing himself, Ravi had told his brother about the murders and that he had been disturbed by them.
