Salem: In a ghastly murder, a 35-year-old woman who had killed her husband and stored his chopped body parts in the freezer of her refrigerator has been nabbed in Salem.
A 45-year-old salon- owner, Balakrishnan, who was married to Sundari and had two sons, went missing about nine months ago. The murder came to light only after his father, Pandurangan, lodged a complaint with the police that his son was missing. As Balakrishnan did not even attend his mother’s funeral in February this year, Pandurangan enquired with his daughter-in-law.
She informed him that her husband was undergoing treatment for kidney failure and could not attend the funeral. As her reply was not convincing, Pandurangan lodged a police complaint.
During police interrogation, Sundari confessed to have stabbed her husband to death on September 26 with the help of her house-owner Rajendran and his associates, Devan and Kumar. She had offered him liquor and committed the murder, the police said.
Then, she chopped the body into pieces and stored them in the freezer for a day. Later, she and her two accomplices buried the body. The police said Sundari was having an affair with Rajendran. As Balakrishnan came to know about it, she decided to kill him.
A special police team is trying to locate the body of the murdered hair stylist. The police have arrested his wife and her three associates....
