The judicial magistrate in Dehradun on Tuesday recorded the statements of four-year-old twins Siddarth and Sonakshi, children of Anupama Gulati (37), who was allegedly murdered by her techie husband.

Anupama's husband, Rajesh (38), allegedly cut her body into 70 pieces after killing her, and kept the body parts in a deep freezer before disposing them of in a jungle. Police have recovered the equipment used in the brutal murder.

Rajesh supposedly admitted to the crime before the police and said he dumped parts of his wife's body in polythene bags in the Mussoorie area.

Special superintendent of police GS Martolitya said Rajesh was likely to be taken to Mussoorie on Wednesday to recover the polythene bags from the forests.

The chief judicial magistrate gave Rajesh four days' custody.

The murder came to light after Anupama's brother, who came to Dehradun from Delhi, had complained to the police about the disappearance of his sister.

On interrogation, Rajesh told the police he had killed his wife on October 17 and revealed the other details related to the crime. Rajesh had reportedly undergone counselling for domestic violence a month before the crime took place. A police source said he killed his wife after an argument.

There have also been reports that Rajesh hatched the plan after seeing the 1992 film "Silence of the Lambs", which featured a psychopath.
