A woman along with her son have been arrested for killing and chopping the body of her second husband in East Delhi’s Pandav Nagar area. The case is very similar to that of Shraddha murder case. The mother-son duo stored the body parts in the refrigerator and dumped them one by one near the area.

The accused in the case had suspected the husband of keeping a bad eye on their daughter-in-law and step daughter which is why they conspired to kill him, said Delhi Police.

The CCTV footage of of both the accused has also been collected by the Delhi Police in which they are seen carrying plastic bags and dumping in the ground.

The Delhi Police Crime Branch has worked on the case. It started the intensive investigation in the month of June after the parts of dead body were recovered.

The man who is now identified as Anjan Das was staying with his wife Poonam Kumari, 48 and son Depak, 24 in Trilokpuri area of Pandav Nagar.

According to the officer of Delhi Police Crime Branch Anjan Das was killed on May 30. The duo after killing chopped the body in more than 10 parts and stored them in the refrigerator. They would dump them one by one in day and night.

DCP (crime) Amit Goel said that initially, two legs, two thighs and head was recovered. The residents of that area complained the local police after which a case of murder was registered. A team of Crime Branch was also tasked to investigate the matter.

The police said that the duo were arrested on the basis of human intelligence and investigations on Sunday.

The interrogation of both the accused were still on. The police is trying to ascertain under what circumstances they committed the crime and how they actually managed to store the dead body parts and remained in the same house.

The police has also confiscated the refrigerator and is further investigating the case.
