Headless Body Found in Chembur - Accused Confesses to Murder

The mystery behind the headless body found in Chembur last week has been solved, with the police finally tracking down the missing head on Tuesday. In a chilling disclosure, the accused told investigators that the victim had arrived at his place, where they shared intimate moments. He then took the victim to the bathroom, and slit her throat. Later, he chopped her body into parts and disposed them at three different locations in garbage bags.

Based on the confession, a police team searched the entire stretch of a nullah passing by Shell colony in Chembur and found the head. It matched the face of a missing woman identified as Kanta Shetty (36), a resident of Sakinaka, who had been missing since October 30. Shetty, who lives in the official Gymkhana quarters, was taken in for questioning. He eventually confessed to the murder.

Police sources further revealed that Shetty's parents had looked for a bride for him and he was to get married soon. This was unacceptable to Kanta, as Shetty had wooed her with promises of marriage. She kept insisting that he get married to her. This led to a heated argument between them.

The accused has been arrested under sections 302 (murder), 201 (destroying the evidence) of the Indian Penal Code. He was produced before the Metropolitan Magistrate Court, Kurla, who sent him to police custody. Cops are yet to recover the weapon.
