Mumbai: As police detained a man for killing his live-in partner and dismembering her body, the decomposing body parts removed from a residence outside of Mumbai brought back images of the horrifying Shraddha Walkar murder case.
According to a senior official at the Naya Nagar police station, the victim, 32-year-old Saraswati Vaidya, was discovered in her flat on the seventh floor of a residential building in Geeta Nagar, Mira Road, late on Wednesday.
According to the official, Vaidya had been in a live-in relationship with her lover, Manoj Sane, 56, for the previous three years. During that time, the couple had been residing in a rented flat.
According to the official, building tenants who noticed a foul smell emanating from Vaidya and Sane’s flat called the police to report the grisly scene.
Officers arrived and found Vaidya’s decomposing body, which had been cut up into several parts. According to a preliminary inquiry, the woman was brutally murdered, according to Mumbai’s Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Jayant Bajbale.
Since the horrific incident, authorities have detained Sane. Investigators have not yet revealed the possible crime’s motive.
Officials are still trying to piece together the events that led up to Vaidya’s horrific death, thus the inquiry is still open.
The issue is extremely worrisome, and we are dedicated to bringing Ms. Vaidya’s case to justice, according to Mr. Bajbale. We kindly request that anyone with information who can help with our inquiry come forward.
The event eerily resembles the Shraddha Walkar murder case, which shocked the nation last year.
Aaftab Poonawala, Walkar’s live-in lover, strangled the 27-year-old call center worker before chopping up her body into 35 pieces and burying them in a jungle over the course of 18 days. In order to conceal her identity, he also burned her face and kept some of the body parts in a refrigerator.
Only six months later, after her father had been unable to reach her for several months, did the case come to light. The Delhi police detained Aaftab Poonawala and charged him with murder and evidence destruction.
