Meerut: An elderly woman was murdered by
some unidentified persons, who barged into the house and
decamped with gold ornaments and cash worth Rs 50,000,
police said.

Some unidentified persons broke into the house of Sub
Inspector Sushma Chowdhary yesterday when she was out of the
house and fled with jewellery and cash after strangulating
her mother Rajbeeri (74), who was alone at that time of the
incident, they said.

The incident came to light when Sushma made calls to her
mother and she received no answer following which the SI

Rajbeeri strangled to death with a pillow, police said.

arrested a security guard in this regard.

A case has been registered and the body has been sent
