New Delhi, Feb 24 : Five people, including the domestic help of the victim, were Sunday arrested for killing and robbing an elderly property consultant in south Delhi, police said.

Police arrested the Nepali domestic help of Vijay Sareen, 72, who was Saturday found dead in his house in Lajpat Nagar which was ransacked by the assailants.

"The domestic help and his four accomplices were arrested from Delhi and neighbouring areas. All the accused are Nepalese," a police officer said.

Police have recovered from those arrested items that belonged to the victim.

Sareen had been staying on rent at the Lajpat Nagar house for six years. He had not got his domestic help verified by police, and he had also neglected to register himself at the Delhi Police senior citizens' cell, police said.
