In a gruesome and shocking incident, a man has killed a 30-year-old woman by chopping off her head and slicing her body into pieces in Mohanpora area of central Kashmir’s Budgam district, police said on Sunday.
An official said the man later dumped the body parts at different spots in his neighbourhood to conceal the crime.
He said that police have recovered all body parts from different spots yesterday after the man admitted to have committed the crime.
A similar murder was reported in Delhi last year when a man killed her girlfriend and chopped her body into pieces. He later stored them in a fridge before dumping the parts one by one in a nearby forest area.
The official said that the incident came to light after brother of the woman, a resident of Soibug area of Budgam had filed a missing complaint on March 8.
“Tanveer Ahmad Khan, brother of the woman had stated that his sister aged 30 years left for coaching classes on March 07 but didn’t return home. In this regard, a missing report was filed and investigation was taken up,” he said.
He said during investigation police rounded up several suspects including Shabir Ahmad Wani son Abdul Aziz Wani of Mohandpora Budgam.
“After sustained interrogation, Shabir confessed to have murdered the missing girl. To hide his crime, the culprit had cut the body into pieces and buried the parts at different locations,” he said.
The official said on his disclosure, the parts have been recovered and medico-legal formalities are underway.
He said further investigation into the case is going on.(KNO)
