New Delhi: A man, suspected to be mentally challenged, was caught having unnatural sex with an unidentified female body in Sarai Kale Khan on Sunday evening.
The accused has been identified as Anil (24), who is a drug addict and is also not mentally stable, said a senior police officer.
The police said that on December 4, a pedestrian saw Anil trying to have “unnatural sex” with the dead body of a woman that was found abandoned along the bank of Yamuna River near Sarai Kale Khan bus stand at around 3.45 pm.
The passerby made a PCR call, following which a team was sent to the spot and the accused was arrested.
“The accused has been sent to judicial custody, looking at his mental condition. The jail authorities have been asked to get him medically and psychologically examined,” the officer said.
The woman, who was in her 30s, hasn’t been identified yet.
The woman’s face has been smashed with a stone and she was strangulated to death, said the officer. Anil said that he, along with another person, had sexually assaulted the woman’s body. The police is probing about the involvement of the other person, he added.
Anil, however, has denied murdering the woman and police is looking for clues that could help them identify the deceased woman and her murderer. The police is also investigating whether the woman had been sexually assaulted before being murdered. Deputy commissioner of police (Southeast) Romil Baaniya said that the arrested man, Anil, remains the primary suspect of the case.
