Mumbai man kills live-in partner, chops up body, boils some parts in pressure cooker

Mumbai/IBNS: Bringing back chilling memories of the grisly Shraddha Walkar murder, police have arrested a man for killing his live-in partner and chopping up her corpse, and even boiling some pieces in a pressure cooker in Mumbai.

The victim has been identified as 32-year-old Saraswati Vaidya. Her remains were found in her apartment on the seventh floor of a residential building in Geeta Nagar area of Mira Road late Wednesday, media reports said.

Vaidya was living with her partner, Manoj Sane, 56, for the past three years, police said. The couple had been residing in the rented flat during that time.

Police were alerted to the gruesome scene by residents of the building, who complained of an unpleasant odour coming from Vaidya and Sane's apartment, the official said.

On arrival, police discovered Vaidya's decomposed body, which had been severed into multiple pieces.

"A preliminary investigation revealed that the woman was brutally killed," Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) of Mumbai, Jayant Bajbale, told the media.

Her live-in partner Manoj Sane has been arrested over the horrifying incident. The potential motive for the crime is yet to be disclosed by investigators.

The investigation is currently ongoing, as officials are trying to piece together the circumstances leading up to Vaidya's violent death.

The police said according to Sane, Vidya died by suicide.

The incident has uncanny similarities to the Shraddha Walkar murder case that stunned the country last year.

Walkar, a 27-year-old call centre employee, was strangled by her live-in partner Aaftab Poonawala, who then chopped her body into 35 pieces and disposed of them in a forest over 18 days. He also stored some of the body parts in a fridge and charred her face to hide her identity.

The case came to light six months after the gruesome murder when Walkar's father filed a missing complaint following no contact with her for months.

Aaftab Poonawala was arrested by the Delhi police and charged with murder and destruction of evidence.
