Ghaziabad: A local court today acquitted a man who was "falsely implicated" in the murder of a woman and her four-year-old grand daughter here after police claimed to have arrested the "real culprit" in the case.

Sangeeta (50) and Gungun were killed in their Vijay Nagar house on July 14. Sangeeta's daughter, Divyanshi, had lodged a complaint against their neighbour Israr, who was later arrested and sent to jail.

Israr, who stayed behind the bars for over 70 days, was today released by the court after police produced before it one Rakesh who allegedly murdered the duo.

Rakesh and Divyanshi, 28, were said to be in a relationship, police claimed, adding the charges against Israr was to mislead the investigation.

Meanwhile, Rakesh has been sent to Dasna jail after being produced before the judicial magistrate.
