Maharashtra: Arrested brothel owner confesses to killing husband

08 December 2017

The skeleton of a man allegedly murdered 13 years ago was found Wednesday in the Boisar home of a woman where she allegedly ran a brothel. After murdering her husband, Bharti had dumped his body in the septic tank of her house. After killing him, she told her neighbours that her husband was an alcoholic who left her. Kiran Kabadi, senior inspector, Palghar police station told Hindustan Times, "Savita Bharati, 42, killed her husband Sahdev in 2004, when he caught her in a compromising position with her lover Kamlesh". The police believe that Farida's live-in partner Kamlesh might have helped her pull off the murder and cover it up, by burying the body in the septic tank.

Police said Sahdev's upper and lower jaw are intact and his bone marrow is in good condition, which means DNA testing can be carried out at the Kalina lab.

The police on Thursday dug up Sarita's home compound and found her husband's skeletal remains.

The Police are now currently investigating the matter and digging the surrounding areas to recover the remains of the other victims murdered. "We are on the hunt for Kamlesh, who is absconding".
