A 46-year-old businessman was killed in Delhi, his body stuffed inside a suitcase and loaded on a Rajdhani Express and finally thrown off the running train in Gujarat by the fiancé of a woman he was involved in an extramarital relationship with, police said.
A quarrel broke out at the woman Faisal’s rented house on November 13 when victim Neeraj Gupta went there and objected to her marriage with Juber.
During the argument, Gupta allegedly pushed Faisal. An enraged Juber then smashed his head with the brick, stabbed him thrice and even slit his throat. Faisal and her mother Shaheen Naaz reportedly helped Juber in disposing the body, the police said.
DCP (north-west) Vijayanta Arya said all three accused have been arrested.
Gupta, who ran a finance firm in Karol Bagh, lived with his wife and children in Adarsh Nagar.
A missing complaint was filed by his friends on November 14 after he didn’t return home. His wife then filed an FIR on Wednesday about the disappearance.
Arya said: “Gupta’s wife told us that for the last 10 years he had been in an extramarital relationship with his 29-year-old employee, Faisal.”
The cops then began their probe from the affair angle and arrested the trio.
“During the interrogation, Faisal disclosed that she worked for Gupta and was in an extramarital affair with him for the last 10 years. Her parents wanted to get her married to Juber and she got engaged to him. When she told this to Gupta, he discouraged her from marrying anyone and came to her rented house in Kewal Park extension in the area of Adarsh Nagar where heated arguments ensued between him and Juber, Faisal and her mother,” the officer said.
During the altercation, Gupta pushed Faisal, enraging Juber. He then attacked and killed Gupta.
In order to dispose the body, the trio allegedly purchased a large suitcase, stuffed the body inside, hired a cab and took it to Nizamuddin railway station.
“Thereafter, Juber took over and loaded the suitcase on a Rajdhani train headed towards Goa. He works in the pantries of trains and that made his work easier,” the DCP added.
Juber threw the suitcase when the train was passing through Bharuch.
The police have recovered the knife and the brick allegedly used in the murder. Efforts are on to recover the body.
