Mumbai Man Kills Live-In Partner, Chops Body Into Pieces
National Desk, 8 June: A 56-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday night for reportedly killing and dismembering his live-in partner in yet another incident like the murder of Shraddha Walker.
The suspect has been identified as Manoj Sahani. He had been residing in the rental flat in the Akashganga building near Mira Road with Saraswati Vaidya for the past three years.
Nayanagar police station received a call from residents of the building on Wednesday complaining about a foul odour emanating from the couple’s flat.
According to the police, a early inquiry indicated that the woman had been killed violently.
“Police have found a body of a woman who had been cut into pieces, from a society in the Mira Road area. Here a couple was living in a live-in relationship. A preliminary investigation revealed that the woman was hacked to death. Further Investigation underway,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) of Mumbai Jayant Bajbale said.
The case has a lot in common with the notorious murder of Shraddha Walker last year which shook the nation. Shraddha’s live-in partner Aftab killed her by chopping her body into 35 pieces and storing them in a 300-liter refrigerator at his house in Delhi for nearly three weeks before scattering them throughout the city over several days past midnight.
Another incidence occurred in December 2022 in Jaipur when a man killed his aunt, dismembered her body and dumped the pieces all over the Delhi motorway. Later, the man reported her aunt missing to the police who then started looking for her and other family members.
