Man ‘chopped partner up to escape arrest’ but denies killing her

Police in India’s Mumbai city have opened up an investigation into the murder of a 32-year old woman. Saraswati Vaidya was allegedly killed by her live-in partner Manoj Sane. The 56-year-old was arrested for murder for allegedly killing the woman and then chopping and boiling her body parts, but he has recently told police that he did not kill Ms Vaidya and denies the allegations. 

As reported by news outlet, India Today, during the police interrogations, Mr Sane told officers that, on June 3, Ms Vaidya consumed poison and died by suicide. He alleged that in order to avoid the police ‘framing’ him, he disposed of the body by chopping and boiling it in the cooker.

Police say they reached Mr Sane’s apartment on Wednesday (June 7) evening after residents in the building complained of a “foul smell” coming from the house and alerted the police. According to neighbours, Mr Sane had also been feeding stray dogs for the past few days, something they had not seen him doing before.

Inside they found Ms Vaidya’s decomposed body, which had been cut into multiple pieces. They also found a plastic bag and a blood-stained saw, with what was thought to be Ms Vaidya’s body parts scattered in various parts of the apartment.

Speaking to the Hindustan Times newspaper, Deputy Commissioner of Police Jayant Bajbale said: “We are investigating the motive behind the murder and how he executed it. We believe that he cut the woman’s body into pieces to make it easy for him to dispose.”

He added: “The situation is deeply troubling, and we are committed to finding justice for Vaidya.”

The couple lived in the Geeta Akashdeep building, in Mira Road East for three years, which is in the western suburbs of Mumbai in Maharashtra state.
