New Delhi: In yet another shocking incident, a woman and her son were arrested for allegedly killing her husband, chopping the body into 22 pieces and keeping them in a fridge in east Delhi’s Pandav Nagar.

Anjan Das was killed sometime before June 5 when his body parts were found stuffed inside a bag at the Ramlila Ground in east Delhi’s Kalyanpuri, news agency PTI reported quoting police.

As per the report, the victim’s wife Poonam and son Deepak disposed of the body parts at different places in east Delhi over several days. The duo told police that Das had an illicit relationship and this was the reason behind the killing.
