The Inside Story

Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra

12-year-old history of broken engagement leads to murder of pregnant woman in Navi Mumbai

The police officials of APMC have successfully detected the murder case of a 25-year-old pregnant woman whose body was found dumped in an open drain in Koparkhairane earlier this month. The accused, Dangalsingh Karmawat, a resident of Shivpuri district in Madhya Pradesh, was arrested, and the cops have unravelled the bizarre history of over 12 years which eventually led to the strangulation of the woman.

The accused and the woman, Kismat Guddawat alias Shilpa, were engaged to each other by their families around 12 years ago. However, due to steep dowry demand by the girl's family based in Rajasthan, the engagement was later broken by the accused boy's family. The girl was later sent to Mumbai to work as a waitress in a bar at Thane. Reportedly, in the Banjara community, it is the girl's family which demands dowry due to a lopsided boy-girl ratio.

On the night of February 10, the victim and the accused had a major fight in Koparkhairane as she persistently demanded him to marry her and take her back to the village. When Karmawat told her that he cannot do so as he is already married, Shilpa threatened to complain to the village panchayat about him having an illicit affair with her. Afraid of the repercussions in case Shilpa complained at his village, he strangled her to death and then wrapped the body in a bedsheet to dispose it at the open drain in Bonkode.
