Patna, April 17: A dumb woman was killed and her chopped body parts were dumped near railway tracks in three different districts in Bihar, police said Tuesday. Her father alleged she was killed for dowry.
Soni Devi, in her mid-20s and a resident of Bachwara in Begusarai district, is suspected to have been killed by her husband Sanjay Singh and his parents. The suspects are absconding.
“Soni was first killed, her body was chopped and her body parts were dumped in three districts,” investigating officer Manoj Kumar told IANS over telephone.
Her body parts were recovered over the past four days.
