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.
