Police arrested a man and his wife for allegedly killing a person and later disposing of his body in a drain in southwest Delhi’s Uttam Nagar area.

Police said that the accused have been identified as Subham and his wife Fatama, adding their third associate Sunny has been absconding.

They said they received call about a large bag dumped in Najafgarh drain opposite a dumpyard at Shiv Vihar in Uttam Nagar.

On reaching the spot, police found the body of a man in his early 20’s stuffed inside the bag, which is usually used for delivering articles by e-commerce companies, a senior police officer said.

The man was later identified as Umesh, a resident of Vikas Nagar, he said.

During investigation, it was learnt that on Sunday evening, Umesh had gone to the room of his acquaintance Sunny, known for taking some intoxicating substances where others were also present. A scuffle broke out between them and he was killed, the officer said.

After killing Umesh, the accused stuffed his body into a large bag and disposed it of in the drain on Monday, he added.

A senior police officer said that a case has been registered and the investigation is ongoing to determine the exact motive behind the killing. (With inputs from PTI)
