New Delhi: Indian Army Major’s wife was found dead on Saturday with her throat slit and body run over by the killer’s vehicle on Brar Square, close to Delhi Cantonment metro station.
The deceased had left home in the morning for a physiotherapy session at the Army’s base hospital in Delhi Cantonment. An official vehicle assigned to the Army Major dropped her to the hospital. However, when the vehicle went to pick her up, the driver was told that major’s wife didn’t come for physiotherapy today. At around 1:30 in the noon, her dead body was found near Delhi Cantonment metro station.
Passersby informed the police about an unidentified woman’s body lying on the road. After the police reached the crime scene, they found that the 30-year-old woman’s throat was slit by a sharp-edged weapon.
According to the police, circumstantial evidence shows that she may have been murdered in a car and was dumped in Brar Square. Police also found tyre marks on the woman’s body which suggest that she may have been run over by the killer.
The police began the investigation to crack the case and scanned nearby CCTV cameras. Since the woman had no identity proof, mobile phone or jewelry on her to help with her identification, her pictures were circulated in every police station.
The woman was identified after the Army Major approached the Narayana Police station to file a missing complaint of his wife. The Army Major is posted in Dimapur, Nagaland. The two tied the knot in 2009 and have a son together.
The Delhi Police says that they have found a crucial lead about the suspect and soon the arrest will be made. According to DCP (west) Vijay Kumar, the lady has been killed by someone known to her. The motive of the murder is neither sexual assault nor robbery.
