The post mortem report of Sanpada resident Arti Kaluse (36), allegedly brutally murdered by her brother-in-law Ramrao (34), has confirmed there was no sexual assault.

The police said the killing was due to a property that Arti’s father-in-law left to her in his will. On Wednesday, Arti, a resident of Millennium Tower, was stabbed 17 times by Ramrao. He later committed suicide.

Her husband, Dilip, a professor at a Mumbai college, was away with their two daughters in Nagpur. He rushed back in the night and took her body to their native village for the final rites.

While the police believe property dispute to be the motive, they feel Ramrao may have killed himself out of fear.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Ashok Dudhe said, “The post mortem report has revealed that there was no sexual assault. The death was due to excessive loss of blood.”

“The family is not in a position to comment right now. Dilip has confirmed that there was a property dispute,” Dudhe added.

“The Kaluses are three brothers and Ramrao was the youngest. He was upset with their father having bequeathing property to Arti.”

Dudhe said: “He may not have come with the intention of killing her, but probably did so in a fit of rage. He must have feared that he would be arrested.”
