Senior BJP leader Vinod Arya’s son, Pulkit Arya, has been arrested for the murder of a 19-year-old woman who worked as a receptionist at a resort he owns near Rishikesh, in Pauri district, Uttarakhand. He had reported her missing on Monday, as did her family, but police said it later turned out he, along with two staff members, had killed her. Those two have been arrested too. The woman’s family had already been suspecting Pulkit Arya’s role, particularly because he was not aiding the probe. The body is yet to be found — search was on in a water channel near the resort — and police are probing the motive amid allegations of inaction “because the accused’s father belongs to the state’s ruling party BJP and RSS”.
