The juveniles disclosed this information to their friends - Gurpreet Singh, Saurabh Nagia and a third associate -living in their locality. Malkiyat's grandsons (her daughter's son and her son's kin) then hatched a conspiracy to loot the amount as they wanted to splurge on their girlfriends and live a lavish lifestyle,'' said Bhism Singh, additional DCP (crime).
The incident took place at Rani Bagh area of northwest Delhi. According to sources, the juvenile grandsons opened the lock of the door on May and gave a free passage to their associates. Besides Malkiyat, her daughter Jasbir too was present in the house on that day. While the juveniles left home after that, their accomplices threatened and tied up the two women with a piece of cloth and looted around Rs 9 lakh from them at gunpoint.

"The accused bought four gold rings from the looted money and Rs. 62,000 cash has been recovered from them. Efforts are on to apprehend the absconding associates and recover the remaining money,'' said Sanjay Jain, DCP (crime).
