Different parts of a women’s dead body found scattered across Mumbai. Her head was discovered yesterday in a forest area on the Shahapur-Nashik Road, wrapped in a plastic bag and then a bed sheet.
Priyanka Gurav, 24, living with her in-laws in Worli, were missing from May 5. Her body was found a day later in a drain in Navi Mumbai.
A tattoo of Lord Ganesh combined with an om symbol on her shoulder helped to identify her. The police arrested her husband, Siddhesh Gurav, and his parents, for her murder and destruction of evidence.
The girl was a B.Com graduate, married just five days ago. The police say the motive for the murder could be that her husband was pressurised to marry her.
“We arrested an accused involved in dumping the body and he took our team to the spot where the head was dumped in a plastic bag. The head was wrapped in a bed sheet and plastic bags” a police officer said.
