The family of a late Himachal Pradeshi princess is not happy with her beneficence to her domestic help:
Raj Rajeshwari, 66, princess of Bilaspur in India’s Himachal Pradesh state, reportedly changed her will shortly before she died. She left about 25m rupees ($556,000) to a peanut-selling father and son who also worked as her domestic helpers.
“…cash, gems and jewellery, a car, Persian carpets and rare artefacts have been left to Babloo Gupta and Ram Bilas. The remaining half of the property has been handed over to a trust of the Himachal Pradesh government to open an old people’s home.”… The princess’ brother is furious, accusing the beneficiaries of drugging her to change the will…
The reclusive, unmarried princess changed her will the day before she died. Is there substance to her family’s claim? Her sister-in-law says:
“They attempted to kill her by an overdose of alprex (sleeping pills) three years ago and have indulged in foul play again.”
CSI:HP is on the case. Results are due back Wednesday at 8/7 Central.
