Indian police arrest man suspected of killing, beheading 7

A man, who killed and beheaded at least seven people who had displeased him, have been arrested by Indian police.

Police in New Delhi arrested Chandra Kant Jha on Sunday, two days after the last of four headless bodies was found dumped outside the high-security Tihar Jail, the Times of India newspaper reported.

The first headless corpse was found outside Tihar Jail in November 2003, the report said.

Police also claimed to have evidence linking Jha to three other killings in which the victims were beheaded, it said.

"It's just a coincidence that Jha was caught so early after the fourth body was discovered near the Tihar Jail. We were already close on his heels," the newspaper quoted police Commissioner K.K. Paul as saying.

Senior police officer Rajesh Kumar said Jha tied the arms and legs of his victims before strangling them, then chopped off their heads and limbs before stuffing the bodies in plastic bags to dispose of them, the newspaper reported.

It said Jha allegedly killed one man because he wouldn't stop eating meat even after Jha asked him to, another for allegedly having an affair with a friend's daughter, and two others because they were womanizers who drank too much. The first victim thrown outside the jail was a friend who had lied to Jha, the newspaper cited police officials as saying.

In March this year a servant in a wealthy New Delhi suburb confessed to killing and sexually assaulting at least 19 children and women and stuffing their dismembered remains into a storm drain.

The killings in the Noida neighborhood prompted outrage after relatives of the victims said police had ignored complaints that up to 38 people disappeared over two years. Nearly all of the victims were from poor families working as servants in the area.
