Just a day after Eid a shocking incident took place in Okhla’s Shaheen Bagh, a deprived locality in Delhi. A man found dumping a woman’s body in a pit was arrested and the body taken for further examination to crack the case, according to daily reports.
Shaheen Bagh resident Maqsood Alam said police found dead women body at Shaheen Bagh and a person has been arrested. It is understood that the man identified Shankar was on his way to dump the body in a pit when locals saw him and informed police that turned up on the site.
According to HT report, the arrested 29-year-old man told police that her 19-year-old sister-in-law committed suicide. To avoid police attention, Shankar was advised by his building contractor to dump the body so as not to involve police as after coming to know they would seal their unauthorized building.
Shiridevi hailed from Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh and was living with her sister and brother-in-law. The family pointed out that as she was depressed for being ignored by her friends she committed suicide.
“While the family claims that she killed herself because she was depressed, we have initiated an inquiry into the matter,” a senior police officer said.
Police are waiting for the autopsy report to find out the exact cause of death.
