Woman’s headless body found in box, wrapped in blanket


NATIONAL | June 9, 2019 (PTI):

An unidentified woman's headless body was found near Jahangirpuri Metro Station in the nation capital on Saturday evening, police said.

According to Bhisham Singh, additional deputy commissioner of police (North West), the extent of decomposition suggested that she was killed two-three days earlier.

The police received a call at 5 pm from a worker of a nearby shop. "He found water dripping from the box and a foul smell emanating from it. We were informed and we arrived at the spot and opened the box to find the body inside," said additional deputy commissioner of police Singh.

The latched white box was found tied and loaded on a bicycle resting against a wall, said the officer. "Inside, a woman's headless body was found wrapped in a blanket," said the officer.

Another investigator, not authorized to speak to the media, said that the body was taped at many places, possibly in an attempt to fold it and stuff it into the box.

The police have sent the body for autopsy and are checking the CCTV footage of the area in their bid to spot the person who brought the bicycle and the body there.

The body has been sent to Babu Jagjivan Ram Memorial Hospital and the post-mortem will be conducted on Sunday, they said.

A case was registered and investigation is on, officials said.
