Mira Road killing: suspect stored victim’s body in bucket, boiled in pressure cookertext_fields
Mumbai: More details of the shocking murder of a woman in Thane allegedly by her live-in partner suggest it is a re-run of controversial Shraddha Walker case a year ago.
The 56-year-old man, identified as Manoj Ramesh Sane who is already arrested, chopped and boiled the dismembered body of Saraswati Vaidya.
The chilling details of how her body was treated at the zenith of cruelty reveal that dismembered parts were scattered in her apartment in Mira Road here.
Most shocking of all the details was some parts were found in buckets which eerily reminiscent of equally horrendous murder of Shraddha Walkar.
Some of the dismembered parts were crushed in a mixer before being boiled in a pressure cooker.
Saraswati Vaidyya was reportedly an orphan and was raised in an orphanage at the Jankibai Apte Balikashram in Ahmednagar.
A worker at the facility told the news outlet Vaidya as claiming to have been living with her uncle.
‘She told us that her uncle stays in Mumbai, and I stay with him. She told us that the man is a clothes merchant and extremely rich,’ NDTV quotes the worker as saying.
When she last visited the orphanage a year ago she appeared to ‘extremely happy’, the worker told the outlet.
More details about Manoj Sane revealed that he was not married and lived apart from his family members in his house in Mumbai's Borivali.
He used to work at a grocery store in Borivali where the victim often visited, police said.
Two year after their friendship had taken root in 2014, they started living together in 2016, before moving to the flat in Mira Road three years ago.
The horrendous murder came to light after neighbours noticed off-putting foul smell emanating from the couple’s flat.
