NEW DELHI: A woman and her son have been detained by the Delhi Police Crime Branch on suspicion of murdering her husband and dismembering his body into ten pieces.

Three days later, a case was started after recovering two legs, two thighs, a skull, and an arm. The body was then identified, the speaker continued. It appeared to be a grisly homicide. After reviewing the video and going door to door to verify, the police identified the body as Anjan Das.
The accused was seen in CCTV footage of the incident approaching a vacant field with a bag that appears to contain body parts.
"Investigation showed that the deceased had been missing for the previous five to six months and that no missing person report had been made by the family. The CCTV footage showed his son Deepak and wife Poonam. When questioned, they admitted to killing him," Goel was cited by the media.
Goel provided additional information regarding the crime, stating that "On May 30, the mother-son pair forced deceased Anjan to consume alcohol combined with sleeping medications. They then cut up his throat, leaving the body at home for a day to allow the blood to totally drain out. The body was subsequently cut into 10 pieces. The police have found 6 pieces thus far.
