A 26-year-old man allegedly killed his live-in partner, stuffed her body in a suitecase before running away with her friend in Haridwar, said police.

The deceased was from Madhya Pradesh. Both the man and the women used to work in the same company in Haridwar. Both the man and the woman’s friend are on the run.

The incident took place on Friday but came to light on Sunday after neighbours informed police about a foul smell coming from the couple’s apartment which was locked from outside, Kamlesh Upadhyay, superintendent of police said.

In the time of investigation, police discovered that the women, a resident of Madhya Pradesh’s Gwalior was in a relation with the accused and was living together. The accused is from Bihar’s Vaishali district.

“Both first used to work together in Gwalior where they developed a relationship and later shifted to Delhi last year where they joined the same e-commerce company. Later in December last year, both along with about 90 others from their company shifted to the industrial unit of State Industrial Development Corporation of Uttarakhand Limited in Haridwar,” SP said.

The entire group began living in the same location where the man and the woman also rented an apartment.

“The accused started getting close with another woman in his building which increased problems between him and the deceased. On Friday, while the two were in their apartment, the accused strangled her to death. He then stuffed her body in a suitcase in an effort to hide it and fled after locking the apartment,” said Upadhyay.

The investigating officer during the probe stated that the woman was also found to be missing which “suggested that she must have fled with the man.”

Another police officer aware of the investigation on the condition of anonymity stated, “The neighbours had said that on Friday, the man had put loud music in his apartment so that the woman’s screams were not heard. He murdered that night.”

Police also found some hints about the whereabouts of the other woman.

“On Tuesday we have found clues about the whereabouts of the woman and will soon nab her to know about the prime accused. Investigations are on in the case and the two will be nabbed soon,” said Upadhyay.
