A case has come to light from West Bengal, where a man took his wife out for a ride, killed her and chopped her body into two over suspicion that that he was cheating on him. He killed her and disposed of her corpse in a canal, then reached the police station to file a false ‘missing persons’ complaint for her.
As per the report by The Times of India, Siliguri resident Ansarul Mohammad, who is a painter by profession and lives in ward number 43 of the Dada Bhai colony, killed his wife Renuka Khatun.
Renuka had enrolled in a beautician course. Ansarul suspected she was having an affair with another man. He used to check her phone regularly and they used to have regular fights about this.
Renuka and Ansarul married each other six years ago and have a son.
As per a report by Navbharat Times, on 24 December, Ansarul picked her up from the college and took her for a ride to the Goaltuli area in Phansidewa block, about ten kilometers from where they lived. There he killed Renuka, then chopped the body into two. Then stuffed the head into a sack and the torso into the other with some stone pieces. He then threw those sacks into the Mahananda canal.
Ansarul told the police that Renuka used to talk to strangers for hours and he was suspecting her of having an extramarital affair.
Renuka’s family filed a police complaint at the Siliguri police station after their daughter went unreachable after 24 December.
On 5 January, the police arrested Ansarul for murder. The cops said they suspected him from the very beginning as he was making contradictory statements. However, he accepted his crime after repeated interrogations, said an officer as quoted by TOI.
The report said that soon after his confession, the Siliguri police in coordination with the State Disaster Relief Force (SDRF) have been locating the corpse. The boy parts are yet to be recovered and the police have met with little success, said Siliguri’s additional DCP, Shubhendra Kumar.
The Siliguri metropolitan police commissioner, Akhilesh Chaturvedi, told the media that on 24 December, Ansarul himself lodged a missing person’s report for his wife.
After his statement, Ansarul was presented before the magistrate the same day, on 5 January, where he was remanded for two weeks of custody.
In a similar incident reported last month from Lakimpur Kheri, Uttar Pradesh, where after killing and chopping his wife Uma Sharma alias Afsa Fatima, Wasi Ahmad informed his mother that she went missing. Wasi not only killed his wife by electrocuting her but buried her in their bedroom.
In another case reported by Rashtra Jyoti, a victim, identified as Neelkusum Panna, was stabbed to death by Mohammad Shahbaz. He allegedly took a flight from Gujarat to reach Korba where he killed the woman. He was angered over the victim as she was not taking his calls.
In another case from Jharkhand, a tribal woman Ribika Pahadin was chopped into more than 50 pieces by lover-turned-husband Dildar Ansari. It was only after the locals found a dog tearing flesh from a human body, that they informed the police.
In a similar case, a 34-year-old man identified as Mohammad Anwar from Uttar Pradesh’s Amroha district strangulated his wife to death after she refused to have sex twice in one night. He was accompanied by his brother, Danish, in this crime. The incident took place on 6 December 2022.
Also, in a case from Bihar, a man identified as Sheikh Shakeel or Shakeel Miyan in news reports, chopped the limbs and other body parts of a woman named Neelam Devi, leading to her brutal death. He penetrated the deadly weapon into her eyes too as per eyewitnesses.
