Agra: A Firozabad court has awarded death sentence to a 32-year-old-man for stabbing his wife’s 70-year-old grand- mother to death with a screw- driver during a robbery at- tempt last year on April 1.

“After the murder, Taren decamped with cash, along with gold and silver jewellery. During investigation, it was found that he was in debt after suffering losses in business, and killed Kamala Devi when he came to know that she had money,” said special public prosecutor Ajay Kumar Shar- ma on Wednesday.

Kamala Devi was a resident of Arya Nagar colony in Firozabad city and was the head of the family that has businesses in glass maniac- Turing and exports. On the day of the crime, only Kamal Devi and her maid were in the house as other family members had gone out to watch a film. After the crime, her grandson, Armpit Jindal, lodged a police complaint against unidentified persons.

Following a probe, Tarun, a resident of Sadar Bazar area in Meerut district, was ar- rested and the looted valua- bles and cash recovered.

“The statement of Kamala’s maid played a crucial role in the case. Forensic samples of hair found in the hands of the deceased were sent for DNA testing, which nailed Taren, who had confessed in court that he was debt-ridden and he did this to come out of his bad financial situation,” the prosecutor said.
