A day after a 45-year-old woman and her servant were killed in her residence in upscale suburban Juhu, police have released the photographs of the two Nepali suspects, who worked as servants in the house.
The suspects Tek Singh and Ram Singh, who worked as servants in the victim's flat at Jayjagdish society in Juhu, are untraceable since the double murder, police said.
"We have released the photographs of the two suspects. We are hoping a breakthrough soon as we got good leads in the case," said Additional Police Commissioner (West) Vishwas Nagare Patil said.
The body of Kavita Suchak was found in a bathroom with grievous injuries, whereas her servant Prakash Bagve (35), working with the family for over a decade, was found strangled to death and his body was found in a bedroom, police said.
A sickle used in the crime has been recovered, police said.
Police suspect it to be a case of robbery-cum-murder as some valuables were found to be stolen from the house.
Suchak's husband Yogesh, who is a financial consultant, had gone to the USA recently, police said adding that after learning about the incident, he was returning to Mumbai.
According to police, last evening when despite repeated knocks by Suchak's two children, who had returned home from school, the door was not opened their neighbours notified the police.
When the door was broken open, the two were found murdered, police said.
