New Delhi: The police has debunked theories making rounds about a “serial killer” on the prowl in South and Southeast Delhi, calling the murders a “coincidence” with probes into each of them unearthing different motives and murderers.

However, two cases have come to light where the police claim that they might be related.

After six bodies were found within a radius of 10 kilometre of each other in South and Southeast Delhi with their body parts missing, theories had emerged that the deaths are related to each other.

“It’s a coincidence that they have happened in the same time. One of the cases has been solved and in the other cases the investigation is at an advanced stage,” Delhi police spokesperson and joint commissioner (southwest) Dependra Pathak said.

“The discussion about serial killings is bereft of truth,” he said.

The body of a woman, wrapped in a black polythene, with a tattoo mark was found lying near Vasant Vihar. In the second incident, headless body of a woman was found in a sewer tank in Munirka.
