The investigation in the gruesome murder case of a 42-year-old doctor in Kanpur has taken a shocking turn. Latest reports reveal that the woman accused of murdering Dr Satish Chandra had tried to courier the victim's private parts to his wife as a gift.
The suspected woman, who has not been traced yet, arrived at Sachdeva Courier Company office at CTI crossing in Govind Nagar, Kanpur, on Monday evening with a parcel.
Police said the features of the killer who visited the courier office matched with those of the woman who was last seen with Chandra in Rania.
"We have some crucial leads with us. Investigating teams are close to establishing the identity of this woman," Kripa Shankar Singh, senior superintendent of police, told Hindustan Times.
During the course of the investigation, the courier company owner told police that the woman came with the parcel at around 8.30 pm and asked to deliver the parcel at Chandra's residence.
When the owner asked for her contact number and address she provided fake details. The woman told the owner that her mobile battery died because of which she would not be able to receive calls.
The courier staff noticed blood stains on the parcel and opened it. The staff was horrified when they saw the private parts of a man kept on a cotton cushion with a letter addressed to the victim's wife.
The staff immediately informed police about the package who seized it after seeing the content.
Chandra, who was posted at Amrodha Primary Health Centre in Kanpur, was found dead in a hotel on Sunday with his throat slit and genitals chopped off.
