The Inside Story
According to the Goregaon police, the body of Babu Hussain was spotted by a local resident at about 7 am near a drain behind Ankur Building on Link Road.

The body, which bore several wounds caused by a sharp object, was discovered wrapped in bedsheets, plastic and paper sheets, the police said, adding that the victim`s identity was established through his fingerprints.

"We checked his fingerprints in our records and found that he was convicted for rape in 2001. We are looking for his family members for further leads," an officer said.

Hussain had been arrested for rape in 2001 by the Kurar police, and sentenced to a seven-year jail term by a court, which he had served.

"It is suspected that the man was murdered a day or two days ago, as the body is not much decomposed, the officer said.

This is the third body found in the city this fortnight.
On Sunday, a tailor`s body was found in a suitcase behind Ryan International School, while a woman`s severed body part was found near the Bandra-Worli Sea Link on September 22.

Cops identify murdered rape convict, arrest 3 neighbours for the crime

Three days after the body of Babu Hussain, a rape convict, was found near Hypercity Mall in Malad (W) on Tuesday, three people have been arrested for the murder. According to the police, it was the crucial fingerprint analysis of the body that led them to identify Hussain and nab Nilesh Ghodse, 29, Santosh Ghodse, 35, and Shankar Ghodse, 25. Another accused, Satish Yadav, is on the run.

The body of 36-year-old, was found wrapped in a blanket and plastic bag near the mall. “The body had several deep cuts and wounds. Our constable suspected the body could be that of a criminal and immediately sent the fingerprints for comparison. Within four hours, we got the report. The fingerprints matched to that of a rape convict who was in prison between 2003 and 2008,” said Mahesh Patil, DCP Zone 11, adding that this a rare case where the fingerprints helped the police to identify the deceased in no time.

After checking Hussain’s records, the police traced his house to Aadarsh Nagar in Aarey Colony. All the four accused were Hussain’s neighbours. “The four had personal enmity with the deceased, as Hussain was eying Santosh’s wife. Besides, Hussain had also borrowed Rs80,000 from Nilesh, which he refused to return,” added Patil.

The case
On Monday, Hussain, Nilesh Ghodse and Satish Yadav were drinking when a fight broke out. The two assaulted Hussain with a knife. Santosh and Shankar Ghodse helped dump the body. While the three brothers have been arrested, Yadav is absconding.
