Prime suspect Raghuveer Singh has been given time till August 2 by a city court to weigh up whether or not he wishes to undergo a narco-analysis test in connection with the murder of his mother Sandhya Singh. However, his girlfriend Shreya has already agreed to go through the examination.
Sunday MiD DAY had reported (‘Tell us the narco test questions, asks Singh’s husband’) about Raghuveer’s father Jay Prakash saying he won’t allow the test till he knows what questions the cops will ask his son.
Police officials say Raghuveer only had ninety-four rupees and twenty-six paise in his account at Abhyudaya bank’s Nerul branch. As the couple didn’t have any cash, Shreya had asked her Delhi-based friend Rohit Saxsena to send some money. “Both had requested Saxsena to dispatch some money into Raghuveer’s friend Mitesh Mora’s account,” a Crime Branch official said.
Interestingly, around 5 pm on December 13 -- the day Sandhya disappeared -- Raghuveer and Shreya had gone to Panvel and purchased some drugs for Rs 2,000. “This was before their friend Mitesh could get them the Rs 6,000 sent across by Saxsena,” the officer added.
Cops claim that the couple didn’t have any satisfactory replies when asked where they found the money to procure the dope.
Sandhya Singh went missing on December 13 last year. It was said that she had left to deposit jewellery worth Rs 20 lakh at a Nerul bank. Later, a British birdwatcher led the police to a skeleton in the marshes off Delhi Public School on Palm Beach Road on January 28. A day later, Singh’s family members claimed that they had identified her remains. The claim was made on the basis of the articles recovered from the spot where the skeleton was found.
