dentist couple were on their way to honeymoon but ended up in police net.
Vinod Kumar (31), son of a head constable in UP Police, and Meenakshi (29) were arrested for allegedly attempting to murder her ex-boyfriend, Ravindra, a doctor.
Four alleged 'contract killers' -- Harish (21), Amit (21), Umesh (30) and Pawan (30) -- were also apprehended for attacking Ravindra in front of Vardhaman Jain Hospital on April 27, Chhaya Sharma, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer), said, adding the couple had agreed to pay them Rs 2.5 lakh for the crime.
Kumar and Meenakshi were arrested while they were on their way to Nainital for their honeymoon yesterday. They got married on Saturday.
It was a mobile phone used by one of the alleged contract killers during the commission of crime which helped police crack the case.
"One of the killers kept the phone call on hold at the time of firing so that the sound of the bullet fired could be heard by Vinod and Pawan. However while fleeing from the spot, the phone fell down," Sharma said.
