After ten days of investigation, police have cracked the case of the woman, whose body was found in a sack. The woman has been identified as Naumita Debu Roy, 40, and police said she was murdered by her husband’s alleged lover, who works as a bar girl.
“When we found the body, it was damaged and naked, so there were no clothes which could help identify the victim. But she had a tattoo which says ‘Om’ on her right hand, implying that she was a Hindu,” said Hirasingh Jadhav, district commissioner of police, Kalyan.
The police got a breakthrough when residents of a chawl told them the deceased was a resident of chawl number 10, at Shivshanker colony and gave them her name as well. They also said that Naumita and her husband’s lover had recently quarrelled, after which she had registered a non-cognisable offence against Naumita at the Kolsewadi police station.
The police tried to trace the husband, Debu Roy and his lover, Savita alias Tina Ashim Das, 38. Police sent a team to Tina’s native place in Kolkata, and arrested her.
Tina told the police that she was having an extra-marital affair with Debu, which Naumita was unhappy about.
Tina admitted to hatching the murder plot and said she took the help of her domestic help, Khokhandas Nimaaidas, 45. She also paid him Rs8,000 for this.
