A woman identified as Cecilia Chong belonging to the Kuki-Chin community was allegedly murdered by a Nigerian national in Uttam Nagar-II, New Delhi. The accused has been identified as Innocent Nwayo.

According to the police the accused and the deceased has been staying together in Uttam Nagar for the past several months. Both of them were said to occupy a rented room in the first floor.

Details of when the murder took place could not be ascertained. However, Chong’s body was found in a decomposed state four days ago only after the landlord complained to the police that a foul smell was emanating from the first floor. When the police broke opened the door, the decomposed body was found stuffed inside a travelling bag. A case of murder has been registered in Uttam Nagar Police Station.

The body of the deceased was buried at Dwarka Christian Cemetery Tuesday. The funeral service was jointly conducted by the Delhi Police (Uttam Nagar Police Station), Kuki Students Organisation, Delhi (KSOD), Kuki Students Democratic Front, Burma (KSDFB) and Tedim Chin Students Association, Delhi (TCSAD).
In a joint statement the Kuki Students Organisation, New Delhi (KSOD) said that Chong was married to Kam (name changed) from Churachandpur, Manipur who lives in Munirka, South Delhi. “We had separated our marriage in March 2010,” said Kam as stated in the statement.

Meanwhile, KSO Delhi general secretary Douminlian Zou said: “It is very unfortunate that even her husband did not care and did not know about the particulars of his wife. We are surprised and shocked to hear this news”.

“According to our tribal custom, a husband is responsible to take care of his wife in whatsoever circumstances. So the husband is not adherent to our tradition and culture. It is a shameful act”, Zou added. “We are conducting an investigation and we will soon nab the accused who has already been identified,” said Jai Kishan, SHO, Uttam Nagar Police Station.

KSOD has asked all the members of the Chin-Kuki community living in Delhi to register themselves in any Delhi-based Church/Fellowship or Students Union. This would lessen our burden in times of uncertainties like the present incident.
The Organisation also appealed to all the parents of Northeast to be vigilant with their children living in New Delhi, shrouded with crimes against women.
