A married couple was arrested for allegedly killing and robbing a 70-year-old man in the temple town of Dwarka. Victim, Mema Chavda, a native of Vira village of Kutch's Anjar taluka, had come to Dwarka to offer prayers on the occasion of the full moon on Friday night.

In Dwarka, he met a 32-year-old woman named Lila Chhatraliya who lured him into a physical relationship and took him to an open ground near Hathi gate.

When the duo reached there, Lila's husband Dipak reached there and they alleged murdered Chavda by smashing his head with a heavy stone. "We caught the duo before they could flee Dwarka town.CCTV footage of the hotel where Chavda stayed provided vital clues about the accused," said Samir Sarda, deputy superintendent of police.
