Update to mass murder in India
In the investigation of the murders of 19 people most of whom are children, detectives today have conducted a new search and have found more than 40 plastic bags filled with body parts.
In a case that has shocked and horrified India, human remains were dug up last month from the backyard and drain of a rich, well-connected businessman's house in Noida, a satellite of the Indian capital. The businessman and his servant have been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, rape and murder although they have yet to be charged.
"Biomaterials packed in more than 40 polythene bags have been recovered from the drain in front of the house of the accused persons," said a statement from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). In addition, pieces of human bones have been recovered ... the seized materials have been sent to the laboratory for post mortem, individualisation and DNA extraction."
The investigation was taken over by the CBI after six policemen were fired and three others were suspended for negligence in the way that they handled the case. Parents have accused the locals of ignoriing the fact that their children went missing. All of the victims are from poor and migrant families. In total, 41 people have been reported missing in the area.
CBI officials are not commenting on the fact that there could be more bodies other than the 19 already identified. "It's difficult for us to say that the new find means there are more people that have been murdered as the parts could belong to the 19 cases already known about," said a CBI official, who declined to be named. "We can't say for sure until all the DNA and forensic tests have been made."
