Third case in month: Woman’s body found without head and legs in Mumbai
MUMBAI: In the third such case in a month, Ghatkopar police on Monday morning found the headless body of a woman near Naval Gate in Vidyavihar. The body, with the legs below the knees missing too, had been wrapped in a bedsheet and was spotted by passersby, who alerted the police. The woman is believed to be in her late 30s.
Police said they were scanning CCTV cameras to establish who dumped the body. According to them, the woman could have been killed at another place and the body dumped at Vidyavihar. “The most important thing is to establish her identity, which will give us the direction for a speedy probe. We are also checking the records of missing persons,” an officer said.Akhilesh Singh, zonal DCP, said, “We have sent the body of the woman, who was in a nightie, to Rajawadi Hospital for post-mortem.” Ghatkopar police have registered a case of murder and destruction of evidence against unidentified killers.
The passersby noticed blood stains on a bedsheet near a nullah on Vidyavihar Road and immediately informed police. “The autopsy report will help us to know the time of her death,” an officer said.
This is the third unidentified body to be found in the city this month. On December 2, a suitcase was discovered in the Arabian Sea near Mahim Dargah containing a shirt, a sweater, trousers, one hand, one leg and the genitals of a man.

RCF police said the corpse was in a highly decomposed condition and the limbs were trussed. After the autopsy, the man was identified as Devendra Akhade (32), an alcoholic, who would harass his family.Akhade’s Reshma Avhad alias Sonu (29) and brother-in-law Sumit Patankar (32) were arrested in the case.

At one time Mumbai was very safe for women. But at the time Mumbai belonged to Marathi manus. Population of Marathi people was very high. Now outsiders are taking over and crimes have also gone up. Naturally, their values are different, their culture is different, their attitude is different.

What a moronic statement by police that they believe murder has been committed somewhere else and body is dumped here. What else u believe, was the killer killed her here and he mutilated here on the road while no one saw it.

Do not politicize everything. We must be vigilant. The state of impunity should be removed. A speedy and articulated investigation by police is expected. Vidyavihar is a very good residential area, someone has committed crime with a aim to disturb tranquility.
