In a horrific crime, a 27-year-old man murdered his wife and chopped her body into seven parts. He then stuffed the body in different carton boxes and dumped them in different parts of Delhi.
The incident came to fore after the police came across a box with a portion of dismembered body. The first challenge before the police was to ascertain the identity of the dead woman.
The dead body was found wrapped in pieces of cloth and a plastic rice sack. As part of the investigations, the police checked the records of missing persons. However, no connections with body were established.
However, the case was cracked based on a small clue from the carton in which the body was found stuffed. Police said that they got a lead from the address that was printed on the carton, said an India Today report. The carton had a sticker of a 'movers and packers' company on it, with a code written.
"When the company was approached, the executives told the police that the code mentioned the delivery order. It was found that the company had transported the household stuff of one Javed Akhtar from Sharjah, UAE to Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh. Police then contacted Akhtar, who told that he had taken some of the empty cartons to his another residence in southeast Delhi's Shaheen Bagh, which he had rented out to one Sajid Ali," a Hindustan Times repoted Deputy commissioner of police (southeast) Chinmoy Biswal as saying.
27-year-old woman has been identified as Juhi. The police have identified the woman's husband as Sajid Ali Ansari, a mechanical engineer from a university in Kuruskhetra. His brothers were identified as Hasmat Ali Ansari and Mohammad Ishtiaq, all native of Chhapra in Bihar.
The man's two brothers, who assisted him in disposing the woman's body, were also arrested.
