Autopsy reports state former army man Mahipal Singh choked his spouse by applying pressure with his thumbs -- one of the most basic lessons taught in training
AN army officer who is suspected to have killed his wife and is on the run used the oldest self-defence tactic to murder his spouse, autopsy reports reveal. According to the police, the accused Mahipal Singh choked his wife Anju's throat by applying pressure with his thumbs.
On the lookout: Cops have been combing the local bars in the area as Mahipal Singh is an alcoholic, and is likely to haunt such places.
Authorities say it is the oldest technique in self-defence training and is one of the basic lessons taught during army training. "We have found a thumb impression of the accused on the deceased's throat. It is clear that Singh choked the victim," said an officer from Vakola police station.
On Tuesday evening, army officials from the military camp in Kalina called up the Vakola police to inform them that Anju Kanwar (35), wife of a defence security personnel Singh (40), was found dead at the residential quarters in the campus.
Their 9-year-old son found Anju's body at 6 pm after he returned home from school. The post-mortem report states that the time of death was 2 pm.
The Vakola police have formed a special team to track down Singh. Officials from the Crime Branch and Special squad (west region) are also on the lookout for Singh. One of the officers told MiD DAY that they were looking at all bars around the area, as Singh is a drunkard. Investigators suspect that Singh has fled to Goa.
Meanwhile, Anju's family members arrived from Rajasthan and have taken custody of the body following the post mortem and are also caring for the young son.

  • Haridas Mandal (13:15:56): And still army issues cheap liquors from it’s 4500 Unit Run Canteens just to earn 1000 crore a year to celebrate 365 days a year in the name of Raising Days, Founder’s dayS, Kargil Days, Bangladesh war days etc etc and end up making its officers as well as jawans permanently addicted to liquors. Will some body from the Medical Council of India will stand up and comment on the very efficacy of issuing freely available cheap liquors to serving troops, to the ex-serving troops and even to their equally addicted widows?

  • I cannot but agree on this point. I wish all serving/ retired officers take up this point from here. Military service has converted a large percentage of raw recruits to Alcaholics simply through easy and cheap availability of liquor. A few who do not drink, got into the habit of selling their quota to Civilians for a profit. This is true of even very senior officers! Corruption begins right here! What is the logic of a widow of an ESM/ ESO drawing liquor from Canteens? An excellent point to ponder!
