Ghaziabad: The district police Monday claimed to have solved a double murder case by arresting nine persons, including the prime accused in the crime.

Police yesterday arrested Shyam Singh, who was allegedly behind the kidnap and murder of Farooq (22) and Narender (19), who went missing on April 4 when they were returning home with a soil-laden tractor, Senior Superintendent of Police Raghubir Lal said.

The accused had allegedly demanded a Rs 5 lakh ransom for their safe release from the families of the two.

Later, bodies of tractor owner Farooq and his helper Narender were recovered from a village in Baghpat, he said, adding both the bodies were identified by their families.

Eight more persons were arrested earlier in connection with the incident.

According to police, as the families failed to pay the ransom the duo were killed.
