Muzaffarnagar (UP), Four men were arrested for allegedly killing a lawyer and burying his body in a jungle here, police said on Monday.
The victim Sameer Saffi was missing since October 15.
The accused – Singol Alwi, Arvaz, Dinesh and Rizwan – were arrested on Sunday, station house officer Anil Kapervan said, adding that the body of Saffi has been found.
Alwi, a bird feed trader, confessed to have committed the crime with his accomplices as he had taken a loan of Rs 1 crore from the lawyer eight months ago and the deceased was pressuring him to payback the amount, the SHO said.
Last Tuesday, the accused abducted Saffi in a car and strangled him to death before burying the body in a nearby jungle.
The lawyer’s family had filed a missing complaint about his whereabouts on the same day.
