In yet another gruesome incident in Delhi’s Madhu Vihar area, a 40-year-old man purportedly beat his wife to death and then hacked her body into two parts to dispose it off so that no one could trace the plot of the murder.
The horrible murder of Manisha was perpetrated by the accused Subodh who worked as a plumber. He has been arrested by the police and said that he suspected his wife of infidelity; he wanted to know the truth of her illicit relationship so he lashed her on the intervening night of February 10 and 11.
First, the man beat his wife to death with lathis in front of his second wife Muniya and his three children, including Muniya’s two-month-old baby. When Muniya and the children tried to intervene, he even threatened them.
The accused then beheaded her with a saw and kept the head in a bag in the bed-box. He had plans to cut the remaining body into pieces to dispose it off but he was arrested on February 15.
He had called her wife who lived with her two children in Shakurpur area to his home to sort out the issue involved. But the exasperated Subodh kept beating her despite pleas from Muniya and his children.
The police officer probing the murder said, â€œEven though he is claiming that he thrashed Manisha in a fit of rage, we suspect that he had planned to kill her in advance and that’s why he called her to his house in Madhu Vihar”.
“He was wary of taking the body outside. He first beheaded her using the saw that he used for his plumbing job. He had plans to chop the remaining body in pieces,” said the officer.
