Man kills father, chops him into bits; mother helps in grisly murder in Delhi

In a chilling resemblance to the Shraddha Walkar murder case, Delhi Police on Monday arrested a woman and her son allegedly for killing her husband and chopping him into pieces and then storing the bits in a refrigerator.
Police said that the man killed his father with the help of his mother, chopped his body into pieces and kept them in the refrigerator. The incident took place at Trilokpuri in the national capital.
The accused have been identified as Poonam and Deepak while the deceased as Anjan Das, who married Poonam in 2017 after her ex-husband died in 2016.
They chopped the body into 10 pieces after killing the man and these pieces were stored in a fridge and disposed of over several days. The woman and her son confessed to the grisly crime, police said.
On 30 May, the accused made deceased Anjan drink liquor and mixed sleeping pills in it. Then they slit his throat and left the body in the home for a day for the blood to drain out completely. Then they chopped off the body in 10 pieces.
The police, however, have recovered six parts of the body.
“On 5 June some body parts were recovered in Ramlila maidan, East district. Then for the next 3 days two legs, two thighs, a skull and a forearm were recovered and then the case was filed,” DCP Crime of Delhi Police Amit Goel said.
Special CP Crime Ravinder Yadav said, “Mother Poonam and son Deepak dumped the body pieces of Anjan Das in isolated areas like behind the Ramlila Maidan, and New Ashok Nagar drain. They also buried the skull.”
According to the Crime Branch officials, the accused buried the deceased’s skull. The police said that Poonam was furious after she learnt that her husband had sold her jewellery and sent the money to his first wife, who lived in Bihar with their eight children.
“The situation in Anjan’s family worsened after Deepak got married and the deceased used to have ill intentions towards his wife and one of Deepak’s sisters who used to live with them. Anjan used to take all their earnings but wasn’t earning himself,” Ravinder Yadav further said.
DCP Crime, Delhi Police Amit Goel said that efforts were made to identify the body for which door-to-door verification was done.
“It seemed like a gruesome murder. Footages were analysed, door-to-door verification was done and the body was identified,” Goel said.
