New Delhi, May 23 (IANS) The woman whose body was found stuffed in a travel bag three days ago in west Delhi has been identified as a 22-year-old Myanmar national brought up in Manipur, police said Monday.

“The victim has been identified as Chong alias Cecelia. She hails from Myanmar, but was brought-up in Manipur. She came to Delhi in 2005 with her ex-husband whom she divorced last year,” said Additional Commissioner of Police V. Renganathan.

A voter identity card found in the room where the decomposed body was found Friday helped in identifying the woman, police said.

The voter card was in the name of Cecilia’s friend, a student from Manipuri staying in Delhi.

“We established the victim’s identity after successfully locating and questioning the person whose voter card was found,” said Renganathan.

“According to the statement of the friend of the victim, after divorcing her husband, Chong had started hanging out with Nigerian nationals residing in various parts of Delhi. We are questioning several persons in connection with the case,” added Renganathan.

Police said Nigerian Innocent Nwayo, the man from whose rented accommodation in Uttam Nagar the black travel bag carrying Chong’s decomposed body was recovered, was staying in the country under a false name.

Police said the absconding Nigerian businessman’s real name is Mac. A lookout notice has been issued to trace him.
