Woman, son held for killing husband, chopping body into 10 parts in Delhi's Pandav Nagar

New Delhi, Nov 28 (PTI) In a chilling recall of the Shraddha Walkar murder case, a woman killed her husband with the help of her son from a previous marriage, chopped the body into 10 pieces and kept them in a fridge before dumping them across east Delhi, police said on Monday.

Anjan Das (45) was killed on May 30 this year by his wife Poonam (48) and stepson Deepak (25), residents of Kalyanpuri, who were arrested from east Delhi's Pandav Nagar area on Monday.

According to police, the trigger for the grisly crime was the fact that Das had alleged ill intentions towards her stepdaughter and Deepak's wife as well, and he was also sending Poonam's earnings to his another wife and eight children in Bihar. Poonam worked as a domestic help in the area.
