Police on Wednesday recovered some parts of the body of Anupama Gulati (37), who was killed and then hacked to pieces allegedly by her techie husband.
In the course of interrogation by the police, Anupama’s husband, Rajesh Gulati (38), reportedly admitted to having murdered his wife and disposing of the body parts in polythene bags in the Musoorie area.
A police team on Wednesday took Rajesh to various places where he had reportedly dumped the polythene bags.
After searching the bushes near the spot, police found the carrion, including toes. Those will be sent for examination and become part of the evidence if they are medically proved to be parts of Anupama’s body.
There were reports that Rajesh’s parents might approach the court of the judicial magistrate in Dehradun for the custody of his children. Anupama’s family members have claimed their custody.
The judicial magistrate on Tuesday recorded the statements of the children, twins Siddarth and Sonakshi (4). The murder, which came to light on Sunday, continues to evoke horror in the region.
Rajesh, who is now in police custody, allegedly kept the body components in a deep freezer before disposing them off. Police have recovered the equipment used in the brutal murder.
The murder came to light after Anupama’s brother, who came to Dehradun from Delhi, complained to the police about the disappearance of his sister.
Rajesh had reportedly undergone counselling for domestic violence a month before the crime took place in October. A police source said he killed his wife after an argument.
Rajesh is said to have hatched the plan after seeing the 1992 film Silence of the Lambs, which featured a psychopath.
