Parvez Haq, the main accused in the suitcase murder at Sandhurst Road railway station—where the body of a 30-year-old pregnant woman was found in a suitcase March 14—was brought to Mumbai from Khandwa in Madhya Pradesh on Monday. He was arrested by the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) government railway police (GRP) who said Parvez was not a doctor, though he claimed to be one.

The CST GRP had earlier arrested Tabrez and Hashib on Friday, the brothers-in-law of the deceased, in connection with the murder, who led the police to Parvez. The police said Parvez had got around Rs two lakh in dowry after his marriage with Rehmat, the deceased, which he spent and after that money was over he married for the second time for dowry.

Since his second marriage was causing tiffs with his first wife, he planned to kill her with the help of his brothers. The police suspect that Parvez’s second wife could also be aware of the plan to kill Rehmat.

The police said the accused strangulated the victim and stuffed her body in a green suitcase following which one of them kept the bag containing the body in a train at Mumbra station and the train left towards Ambarnath. The train reached Ambarnath and left for a down journey towards CST. At Byculla a thief got into the train and thinking that it contained some valuables opened the suitcase got off at Sandhurst Road station along with the suitcase. However, on seeing the body he panicked and left the bag at the platform.
