Suspecting that his wife was having an affair, a 40-year-old rickshaw driver allegedly killed her male friend and chopped his body into 15 pieces, which he then packed into three gunny bags and dumped them at Khoda Pushta late Thursday night, police said
Ghaziabad police said they came to know of the bags from locals who got suspicious after stray dogs started gathering around them on Saturday morning.
The police identified the deceased man as Akshay Kumar, 23, who hailed from Kotputli in Rajasthan.He was allegedly in a relationship with Prajapati’s wife, whom the police did not name.
“Prajapati asked his wife to call Kumar to their house on Thursday and he came there in the evening. She then went to a hospital in Delhi with their minor daughter who had suffered a burn injury. In the meantime, Prajapati made Kumar consume a few drinks and killed him late night using an axe-like weapon (called gandasa in Hindi) and chopped his body into pieces,” sad Diksha Sharma, deputy commissioner of police (trans-Hindon).
