Neighbourhood News Desk: Killers of a 15-year-old girl from Jharkhand, whose dismembered body parts were found in a drain in outer Delhi a fortnight ago, used a cleaver purchased from a market in Nangloi to chop her body into 12 pieces, investigators said on Monday. Brutal murder was committed around 11pm on May 3 after allegedly planning for a week. Manjeet Karketa, 30-year-old agent of a fake placement agency whose rented house the crime was committed has already been arrested by the police in connection with the case.
Karketa has told interrogators that the murder plan was hatched for almost a week before the crime was executed. Body parts were discovered by a passerby the next day. Police registered a case and launched the probe, during which they analysed more than 100 CCTV cameras on routes leading to the drain. One of the cameras had recorded two suspects carrying the body parts in a bag, but their faces were not clear. Karketa’s details were collected from his landlord who had photocopies of his Aadhaar card and other identification documents. His permanent address was traced to a village in Gumla. Police team raided his native home and arrested him.
