The Delhi Police on Wednesday released the sketch of the person who booked a parcel, a tin box which contained a girl’s body, at Milap Transport Roadlines Company here.

According the police, the killer of the girl, whose body was found in the parcel at Ajmer, had washed the body before packing it.

Sources said it appeared to be the handiwork of a professional killer, as the body was washed thoroughly to remove bloodstains and wrapped neatly to prevent any smell.

“After washing, the body was wrapped in five layers of plastic so that blood or smell doesn’t come out,” said an Ajmer police official who did not wish to named.

“With the help of experts we have prepared a sketch, and a reward of R50,000 has been announced for the person who will give information about him. We will also release the sketch of the rickshawpuller who brought the parcel to the transport company,” said a Delhi police official.

So far, the police have contacted more than 150 families in Delhi to identify the victim. Also more than 1,000 rickshawpullers have been questioned. The police have also released the photos of the tin box and the clothes found inside the box to get a lead in the case.

Meanwhile, the Delhi police met with Delhi Goods Transport Association, which issued a circular to all its members.

“In view of the case, we have issued a circular for booking materials which are in the shape of household goods. Directions have been given to our members to instruct booking clerks so that in future, things like this do not happen again,” said Rajender Kapoor, secretary general of the association.

The Ajmer police blamed negligence on the part of the staff of the transport company for not getting proper addresses of the dispatcher and the receiver of the parcel, however, only the Delhi police can take action against the company.

Ajmer Police had found the body on April 8 in the trunk, dispatched as parcel from the transport company at Pili Kothi in Delhi to Krishna Transport Company in Kishangarh, Ajmer.
