A naked and headless body has been found in Maljipada village in Naigaon (east), at around 10.30 pm. The passers-by informed the police, “The body was tied up in a gunny bag with cement to ensure it stayed at the bottom of the lake,” an officer said to Mid-Day.
“The woman, believed to be in her 20s, had a red-coloured thread tied around her right wrist. The body was not decomposed, indicating that it may have been dumped hours before it was noticed,” he added. According to leading newspaper report, the police is still on the lookout for the missing head in order to identify the woman head and further investigation is underway.
Earlier this year, Valiv police were encountered with a similar case where they found the skeleton of an unidentified woman on the Mumbai-Ahmedabad highway in Vasai. Her body was stuffed in a gunny bag and dumped along the highway. However, the case is yet to be solved.
One such case was also reported from the limits of the Ambernath police station in Maharashtra where officials had discovered a man’s decapitated body in December of last year. An investigation into the matter led police officials to the victim’s wife and her paramour who reportedly plotted and executed his murder.
