Dehra Dun: The Uttarakhand police has filed a
chargesheet against software engineer Rajesh Gulati, who
allegedly killed his wife Anupama and hid her body parts in a
deep-freezer for nearly two months.

In the chargesheet, filed yesterday before a local court
here, the motive behind Anupama`s murder has been described as
the strained relations between the couple and alleged second
marriage of Rajesh with Jhuma Dutta of Kolkata, Superintendent
of Police G S Martolia told reporters here.

The 350-page chargesheet contains the names of 77
witnesses besides police case diary and findings of
investigations corroborated with evidences, he said.

Martolia said the police would try to seek capital
punishment for the accused as the crime committed by him was
barbaric.

The murder of Anupama, 33, was unearthed on December 12
last year when her brother S K Pradhan lodged a report with
the police after not getting a satisfactory reply from Gulati
about his sister`s whereabouts.

When police arrested Gulati from his rented accommodation
at Prakash Vihar locality here, he confessed to have strangled
Anupama, cut her body into pieces and hid them in a
deep-freezer for nearly two months.

Later, police also recovered some of her body parts from
the foothills of Mussoorie which Rajesh had thrown earlier.
The couple had two twin kids, aged 4, and Rajesh had told
them that their mother had gone to Delhi.

Besides, Anupama`s brother Pradhan, her landlord,
neighbours, the shopkeepers from where electrical saw and
deep-freezer was purchased and Rajesh`s alleged second wife
Jhuma Dutta have also been made witnesses in the case.
