A man arrested on charges of murder has claimed to having killed about 250 people in the past four months.

Meerut (Uttar Pradesh): In a shocking confession, a man arrested on charges of murder has claimed to having killed about 250 people in the past four months, police said on Thursday, adding that the matter was being investigated.

The accused, identified as Salim, is a middle-aged taxi driver in this Uttar Pradesh district who, along with an accomplice, used to murder his passengers and pocket away all valuables, according to police.

"During the interrogation, Salim said that he had killed about 250 people in the past four months," Meerut Senior Superintendent of Police Dipesh Juneja said.

"We laid hands on the killer during the course of investigation of a dual murder that took place on February 14," he said.

"The bodies of a medical representative and a junior engineer were found on the city outskirts. While we were still carrying out the investigation, the cell phone of the slain medical representative was found to be back in use, prompting us to track down the caller."

Police were now trying to trail Salim's accomplice in the crime.

According to the police, Salim said in his interrogation that his victims included men, women and children. Investigations were on to find out more about his crimes.
