Accused allegedly boiled body parts to avoid detection
The accused used to boil body parts in the cooker in an apparent attempt to ensure there is no foul smell and it would be easy for him to dispose of them.
One of the immediate neighbours had complained to Sane about the emanating smell to which he got a bit frightened but replied that he will check his flat.
