New Delhi: In the aftermath of horrific Shraddha Walkar murder case, yet another spine-chilling murder of a person living in East Delhi’s Pandav Nagar came to light here on Monday.
A woman, along with her step-son, allegedly murdered her husband and chopped his body into pices and stored them in a fridge before disposing of his parts.
The deceased has been identified as Anjan Das, who lived with Poonam, his wife and step son Deepak.
Both the accused have been arrested after the police found two chopped legs, tow thighs, a skull, and a forearm, in the Trilokpuri, Kalyanpuri, and Pandav Nagar areas. They however have not been able to identify the deceased.
Police conducted a door-to-door verification and found out that Das had been missing for the past five to six months, but his family never filed a missing complaint.
CCTV footage in the area captured the mother-son duo moving with bags towards a vacant ground, which helped the police proceed with their arrest. The two reportedly confessed to the crime, alleging that Das was having an illicit affair.
“On 30 May, they (mother-son duo) put sleeping pills in Das’s drink and later slit his throat. They left the body at home for a day for the blood to drain out completely. They then chopped the body into pieces. So far, the police have recovered six pieces,” police told reporters.
The couple married in 2017 and quarreled frequently, as per their neighbours.
