Mumbai Mira Road murder evokes memories of Shraddha Walkar case: Police said some body parts of the victim are missing and that Sahani likely dumped them.

In a case similar to the horrific Shraddha Walkar murder case, a 56-year-old man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly killing his live-in partner and chopping her body into pieces in Mumbai's Mira road area. According to the police, the murder may have taken place three days ago. The accused, identified as Manoj Sahani, 56, was living with the parts in the apartment, police said.
