Bhopal man who killed partner murdered parents also: Police

Bhopal, Feb 4 (IANS) A Bhopal resident arrested on the charge of murdering his live-in partner and entombing her body in his house here has confessed to his parents’ murder too, police said on Saturday.

Accused Udyan Das revealed during interrogation over the murder of his partner Shweta Sharma (28) that he murdered both his parents in 2010 and interred the two bodies in their house in Raipur in Chhattisgarh in a way similar to what he did in the case of Shweta, Superintendent of Police Sidhartha Bahuguna told IANS.

He said a police team from Bhopal had since been dispatched to Raipur to check the veracity of Das’ statement regarding his parents’ murder.

Das had come in contact with Shweta, who hailed from Bokaro in West Bengal, through a social networking site and was living with her at his Saket Nagar residence since June 2016. Both had a fight in December 2016, following which he allegedly murdered her.

He built a concrete platform in his first floor house over Shweta’s body to conceal his crime. The murder came to light after he was questioned by police after the tower location of Shweta’s mobile phone was located to Saket Nagar area.

Shweta’s family had registered a missing complaint with Bankura police in West Bengal.

The Gobindpura police said the concrete platform was broken on Thursday night and the body buried underneath was recovered.
