Mumbai: Kashimira police had on November 23 found an unidentified body of a 23-year-old boy near Velkar petrol pump, almost 100 feet away from Mumbai Ahmadabad high way. When the police spotted the body, it was half naked.
The body has now been identified as Shivshankar Shivprasad Chaurasia, whose father runs a beetle shop in Bandra West. He was the resident of Grant Road’s Kumbharwada and went missing from November 23. His father had lodged a missing complaint in Bandra police station after he failed to locate him.
The tattoo mark of ‘Aum and Trishul’ on his right hand helped his parents to identify the body as his face was bludgeoned with stone beyond recognistion.
“We had shared the picture of dead body with various police stations of Mumbai. On November 24, we came to know that a missing complaint of 23-year-old boy has been registered in Bandra police station. After consulting the investigating officer, we called in his parents to identify the body,” said Vilas Sanap from Kashimira police station.
His face was smashed with stone. Kashimira police station, where the murder case has been registered against unknown people, is investigating the case. “Few of his friends have been rounded up for investigation,” said the police.
The investigators are trying to unearth how a Bandra-based boy, who parked his motorbike before he went missing, reached Kashimira
