Ghaziabad, July 1 (IANS) A city realtor Jitendra Tomar, reported missing since Monday, has been found murdered in Rishikesh in Uttarakhand, police said on Friday.

His son Amit along with his driver has been arrested in the case while Tomar's wife Malti is missing, police added.

Police said during interrogation, Amit confessed to his crime and led police to the spot where the body was dumped.

Tomar was a brother-in-law of Samajwadi Party leader Anand Chaudhary and was living in RDC-13. His disappearance was reported to police by his driver Brahma Pal.

Police said three persons -- including realtor's son Amit and wife Malti -- were seen barging into the house around 9.30 p.m. on Monday, as caught on a CCTV clip.

The accused took away two CCTVs installed at the entrance to Tomar's house but failed to notice the third one installed in the drawing room. Amit was caught on this CCTV. A police team has been dispatched to seize the body from Narendra Nagar near Rishikesh," Inspector Ashok Sishodia of Kavi Nagar police station told IANS.

Amit reportedly told police that he killed Tomar as his father had disinherited him from family property. Amit and his mother were living in Karmu-Kheri village in Shamli while Tomar lived alone in Ghaziabad.

On Wednesday, Tomar's daughter, who lives in Raipur in Chhattisgarh, reached home. She came to know about her father's disappearance when she found his mobile phone switched off.
