A Serial Killer Theory In Bengaluru After 3 Women’s Bodies Found In Drums
New Delhi/Bengaluru: After a woman’s body was found in a plastic drum at Bengaluru railway station on Monday, the Congress has accused the BJP government of “serial killings” in the city ahead of the Karnataka elections.
Since December, three women have been found dead in Drums.
In the latest case, a dead body of a woman was found in a drum between 10 am and 11 am on Monday at the entrance gate of Baiyappanahalli railway station in Bengaluru. The drum was covered with clothes and a lid.
Police say they have solved the murder. They say the 27-year-old woman, Tamannaah, was killed by her brother-in-law.
Tamanna left her husband Afros in Bihar’s Araria and eloped with her cousin Indekwap. The couple lived in Bangalore.
Afros’ brother Kamal allegedly killed the woman on February 12 with the help of his friends.
Kamal and his friends dumped the body in a drum at the railway station a day later, police said. They traveled in an autorickshaw and were tracked down with the help of security footage.
Police said that three suspects have been arrested and five others are missing.
The first such crime came to light on December 6, when Drum was found with his mutilated body on a train. On January 4, another body was found with multiple injuries on a platform at Bengaluru’s Yashwantpur railway station. None of these women have been identified.
Police denied any connection to the previous “Drum” murders or any role in the serial killer.
“This case has no connection with the previous two cases. So far, we have not found anything to indicate the involvement of a serial killer,” Railway Police officer Somlatha said.
Congress leader Randeep Surjewala tweeted: “Bangalore residents – remember the dates! 3 dead bodies of women found in drums/barrels at release stations. Law and order has failed. Serial killings galore.”
Mr Surjewala shared a news report which said the police had spotted a pattern and suspected a serial killer.
