A software engineer from Delhi, Rajesh Gulati, has been sentenced to life imprisonment for killing and chopping his wife into 72 pieces. According to an HT report, the Additional and Sessions Court in Dehradun convicted Gulati on Friday for murdering his wife Anupama and hiding evidence related to the murder. He had been accused under sections 302 (murder) and 201 (causing the disappearance of evidence) of the IPC.

Both Rajesh as well as Anupama are from Delhi but had been living Dehradun since their return from the United States.


Rajesh is reported to have confessed to killing Anupama on the night of 17 October 2010 in a fit of rage by slamming her head against the wall. Anupama's brother had filed a missing persons complaint with the local police on 11 December 2010 and Rajesh's confession came a day after during a police interrogation.

Rajesh had cut Anupama's body into 72 pieces and kept the parts in a deep freeze after murdering her in an attempt to hide the evidence. HT reported that he would tell everyone who asked about her, including their children, that she was out.

HT also reports that the motives established in the chargesheet were the strained relations between the couple over his alleged second marriage to another woman in Kolkata.
