The Hush Post: The decomposed body of a 25-year-old woman was found in an almirah of her flat in Delhi, police said. It is suspected that she was in a live-in relationship with a man, who was married. The victim was allegedly pressurising him to get a divorce from his wife and get married to her, a police official said.
The woman lived in northeast Delhi’s Gokalpuri area away from her parents after they opposed her relationship with the man, whose house is in the same locality as the flat in which she was staying, the official said.
It is suspected that she was strangled and she had died a few days ago. Police are questioning her live-in partner and neighbours, he added.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (North-East) Atul Kumar Thakur confirmed the incident and said that a PCR call was received at around 5 pm on Thursday. “The body has been sent for post-mortem, which will ascertain the cause of death and the number of days the woman has been dead for,” he said talking to the media.
Sources said that locals called the police after a foul smell started emanating from the house. “When the police reached the spot and it was searched, the body was found in the almirah,” said a police officer. A case under Section 302 (punishment for murder) has been registered.
