Mira-Bhayandar: In a haunting parallel to the infamous Shraddha Walkar murder case, the headless body of an unidentified woman was discovered stuffed inside a travel bag at the shores of Patan Bunder in Uttan near Bhayandar on Friday morning.
Beach cleaning staff noticed bag and prompted police
The police reported that the beach cleaning staff noticed the suspicious bag at approximately 8 am on Friday and promptly informed the Uttan coastal police station. Law enforcement personnel swiftly arrived at the scene and upon examination, found that the bag contained the decapitated body of a woman estimated to be between 25 to 30 years old.
The body had been severed into two parts, and the woman's left arm bore tattoos depicting a trishul (trident), a damru (pellet drum), and the Om symbol. She was dressed in a maroon t-shirt with the words "Be-Yourself" imprinted on it. The body was sent for autopsy.
Police cross-referencing with missing people complaints
Senior Police Inspector Dadaram Karande stated, "We are cross-referencing missing persons complaints filed in and around the area, and special teams have been assigned to determine the woman's identity." He urged individuals with any information regarding the woman's identity to contact the Uttan coastal police station at 02228451001.
While efforts are underway to locate the severed head, investigation is on to ascertain whether the bag had washed ashore from elsewhere or had been deliberately dumped at the site.
