28-year-old Meetu Talwar make a mango shake to drug her mothers-in-law Savinder Kaur and Har Kaur, and then decamped with the family jewels.

On  May 15 night, police say, Meetu  served her mothers-in-law some mango shake to beat the heat, but the drugged liquid knocked them unconscious.

When the two old women woke up the next morning in their house in Krishna Park, Tilak Nagar, they found the house ransacked and cash and jewellery worth more than Rs 24 lakh missing.

"We had received a complaint of theft from Har Kaur, 60, resident of Krishna Park in Tilak Nagar area on May 15 and we have now arrested 6 people in this case and recovered jewellery worth Rs 24.2 lakh in cash. On May 16 an FIR had been lodged against the daughter-in-law of the family," said Sharad Aggarwal, DCP (west Delhi).

"During investigations our team found no signs of forcible entry and we suspected that some insiders were involved. Also after the woman had escaped, we searched for her parents and other family members and found them missing too," he said.

The police traced Meetu's family to Mani Karan area in Himachal Pradesh. But when teams were sent for raids in the area they found nothing there. The police later came to know that the accused was at her maternal aunt Timmy's house in Hari Nagar,  west Delhi.

Meetu Talwar, Kamal Nain (Meetu's brother) and  Parminder Kaur( Meetu's mother) were arrested from Hari Nagar. During questioning, they confessed to the role of their in-laws Jagminder Kaur aka Timmy,42 (maternal Aunt), Sukhbir Singh,55 (maternal uncle) and Maher Singh, 25 (son-in-law of maternal aunt). The rest of the accused were also arrested.  

Police says, Meetu has confessed that she took a large loan from her maternal aunt, and had also taken loans from other people for the treatment of her ex-husband. But she failed to pay back the money.

"Seeing no way out Meetu's mother Parminder Kaur and her brother Kamal Nain planned this conspiracy. On the night of May 15 Meetu served her mothers-in-law the spiked mango shake and then robbed the house," the DCP said.

Meetu escaped to Himachal Pradesh with her daughter and family. They were also trying to dispose off the jewellery and pay off the debts.

Meetu was earlier married to the elder son of the family Narender Singh. But Narender fell ill and died after some time. Then Meetu married his younger brother Nirmohan Singh. Nirmohan is a businessman and is currently in the UK.
