Murder – Decomposing body parts found in the 56 year old man’s house led to suspicion the murder may have been committed at least two days earlier, police said.
Police suspect that the murder of a 56-year-old man’s live-in partner occurred at least two days before the discovery of decomposing body parts in his house. The incident took place in a rented apartment on Mumbai’s Mira Road, where the man, identified as Manoj Sahani, was arrested on Wednesday evening. According to an officer from Nayanagar Police Station, it appears that Sahani had been living with the body parts for several days. The accused had been residing with Saraswati Vaidya, 32, in an apartment building called Geeta Nagar Phase 7 for the past three years.
The Nayanagar Police Station received a call from concerned residents around 7 pm on Wednesday, reporting a foul smell emanating from the couple’s flat. Upon entering the apartment, the police discovered the dismembered body of the woman. Sahani was immediately taken into custody. Jayant Bajbale, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone 1), stated that Sahani has been arrested and the investigation aims to determine the motive behind the murder and the method used to carry it out.
Bajbale added, “We believe that Sahani dismembered the woman’s body to facilitate its disposal.” The police suspect that some body parts are missing and might have been discarded by the accused in another location. The authorities are in the process of filing a First Information Report (FIR) against Sahani for murder and destruction of evidence. A forensic team has been summoned to collect samples and evidence from the apartment.
According to police officers, residents of the building mentioned that the couple kept to themselves and did not interact with others. The couple’s flat lacks a nameplate and is registered under the name of Sonam Builders.
