Mahilpur, April 8
The Mahilpur police have booked a resident of Amritsar in connection with the decomposed body of a 35-year-old woman recovered from a choe (rainwater drain), who was missing from Langeri Road in Mahilpur city for eight days. A case was registered against accused Rahul of Amritsar under various Sections of the IPC, including murder and deletion of evidence.
Sheikhuddin, alias Zahid Mohammad, a resident of Langeri Road, told the police in a statement that his mother, Seema Mohammad, worked in a city mall. Rahul, a resident of Chheharta in Amritsar, who had come out of a de-addiction centre here after recovery, came in contact with her. Meanwhile, her mother had a divorce from his husband and started living at Langeri Road in a rented house. She used to say Rahul as her husband. After some time Rahul started harassing his mother for drugs and started beating and forcing her for immoral activities. Rahul came to Mahilpur in the last week of March and on March 29, he asked his mother to go to the market on a motorcycle and after some time he came back alone.
When asked about Seema, he made excuses. When his mother did not return till the next day, he informed his aunt Reena Begum and her husband Karamat Ali, residents of Nasran. He said that on April 2, they lodged a report of disappearance at the Mahilpur police station. When Rahul found out about the complaint, he went to Amritsar. Last evening, people spotted the body of a naked woman at Ladhewal Choe and informed the Mahilpur police.
The police identified her from burnt phone and mall’s identity card found nearby. SI Satwinder Singh is investigating the case. An FIR has been registered against accused Rahul under Sections 302, 201 and 34 of the IPC and a police party has been dispatched to Amritsar to arrest Rahul.
