Chetana Vora, 52, is in a state of shock ever since she discovered her mother’s body, said a relative.

“Chetana has barely spoken to anyone. She and her mother lived together at their Malad residence as Chetana was not married and her father passed away a few years ago,” said the relative who did not wish to be named.

Jay Shah, 17, one of Vora’s neighbour said, “I knew her [Vora] since I was a child. She was a nice lady and would always speak very politely.”

When asked if he had seen anyone suspicious entering Vora’s house, Shah said,

“We did not even hear a scream. Her door was ajar when Chetana returned from her shop.”

Other neighbours also claimed that did not seen anyone suspicious in the area.

“This is a chawl, an open space where anyone can walk at any hour. We cannot keep a tab on every person entering the premises. Probably that is why the accused could get away with the crime,” said Channalal Kandal, 83, a resident.

Kandal said this was the first such an incident had ever occurred in the area in the past 65 years.
