One gruesome fact after the other is coming to the fore in the investigation of Dr Satish Verma murder case that rocked the city on Sunday.


In the latest development, it has come to light that the mystery woman, who is the prime suspect in the case, had tried to parcel the doctor’s genitals to his wife. The parcel also had a message for Verma’s wife saying it was a gift for her.

The woman showed up at the office of Sachdeva Courier Company at CTI crossing in Govind Nagar late on Monday evening with a well-packed parcel. Police said her physical and facial features matched with the woman seen last with the murdered doctor in Rania.

“We have some crucial leads with us. Investigating teams are close to establishing the identity of this woman,” said Kripa Shankar Singh, senior superintendent of police, Kanpur Dehat.

The courier company owner told police the woman came around 8.30pm and requested the parcel to be delivered to the Barra residence of Dr Verma. The owner, RKS achdeva, asked for her cell number and address.

Though she provided details, which later turned out to be false, she told him her cell-phone battery had died and she would not be able to accept calls if made for the pre and post-delivery confirmation.

When the parcel was opened for sorting late in the night, employees were horror-struck with its contents. The genitals were placed on a cotton cushion with a letter addressed to the doctor’s wife.

Sachdeva rushed to the Govind Nagar police station with the parcel. The Kanpur Dehat police sent a team after being informed about the discovery.
