The Hush Post: A daring female cop has arrested an alleged serial killer, who is a tailor by profession. The accused has confessed 33 brutal murders in four states including Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
The arrested man is Adesh Khamra, who ran a small tailor shop in Bhopal, a report said.
According to the police, Khamra started killing people in 2010 with first murder in Amravati then second in Nashik. Soon, Khamra started killing people everywhere in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and in Bihar.
Not only the modus operandi was same in all these murders, all the victims were truck drivers or their helpers. But no one could think even in his wildest dreams that an innocent looking tailor could have committed these gory murders.
When police arrested Adesh Khmara, they were stunned when he confessed to have killed over 30 persons. Then, he confessed of having killed three more men. With 33 killings, Khamra qualifies for one of India’s deadliest serial killers. Thirty-three murders put him behind serial kilers Raman Raghav (42 murders) and Stoneman of Kolkata.
A daring female cop SP Bittu Sharma arrested Khamra from Uttar Pradesh’s Sultanpur jungles. Bhopal City SP Bittu Sharma is a taekwondo black belt and Asian Games bronze medalist in judo. She took Khamra down at gunpoint in the dead of the night.
When police arrested Khamra, they had no idea that they have caught one of India’s most notorious serial killers. “This is a once-in-a-lifetime case,” a police officer said.
Khamra’s accomplice confessed that whenever they asked him about killing the drivers, he would say he is granting them salvation. “They lead hard lives,” Khamra would laugh. “I am giving them mukti, freeing them from pain.”
In Khamra’s locality Mandideep, his relatives, neighbors and friends got stunned on hearing this news. “He was a quiet man, well behaved. There is no way anyone will accept he has the blood of so many on his hands,” a neighbor said.
A senior police officer said that Khamra used to put up a disarming show of warmth and friendliness. Thus he used to befriend truckers and trap them. While his accomplices looted the vehicles, he would strangle the drivers with a rope. Sometimes, he used to poison his victims.
The modus operandi was chillingly effective. It was to ensnare truckers over drinks, drug them, murder them. After killing them, totally strip them nude so they could not be identified, and dump bodies on hilly roads.
Thus, bodies would turn up in MP, Maharashtra, UP, Bihar and Jharkhand states, with police struggling to join the dots.
“And he remembers every little detail about everyone he has killed. The victim’s last meal, where they ate, what they wore, where and how he was killed and where exactly the body was dumped. The details are bloodcurdling. In postmortem reports, the injuries were exactly where he had dealt the blows,” the police officer added.
For the cops there was another stunning revelation. Adesh Khamra was influenced by a dreaded serial killer Ashok Khamra whom he called uncle. Ashok himself had confessed to have killed 100 truckers when he was arrested in 2010, cops said. He drugged his police escort while being brought to Bhopal by train and fled. Khamra senior has not been arrested since then, the report said.
