Meera Road murder case accused Manoj Sane produced in Thane court on Thursday.

Mumbai murder news: The suspect, Manoj Ramesh Sane (56) is reportedly HIV-positive and never had any kind of physical relationship with the 32-year-old woman who was killed and chopped into pieces by him in Mumbai, said a senior police official as quoted by The Indian Express. 

He informed the police officer that the victim, Saraswati Vaidya was like his daughter. “Vaidya was very possessive. She even suspected that I was being unfaithful to her," Sane told police. 

As quoted by IE, the suspect told police that Vaidya was planning to appear for Class 10 SSC exams and Sane was teaching her Mathematics. 

A 56-year-old man was arrested this week after the chopped body parts of his live-in partner were recovered from a flat in Maharashtra's Thane district on Thursday. 

Police were alerted by local residents on Wednesday after a foul smell began emanating from the flat the duo had lived in for three years. A team was rushed to the spot and found the decomposed body of Saraswati Vaidya.

Officials said that they had been cut into several pieces. While the police indicate that Manoj Sane had boiled his partner's body and fed the parts to dogs, claims about suicide have also emerged.

The police suspected that Sane murdered Vaidya three to four days ago.

The accused however insists that his partner had consumed poison on June 4. He told the police had he had feared that he would be booked for abetment to suicide and hence decided to chop the body in pieces and dispose of it.

A PTI report quoted his neighbors to add that the accused had tried to hide the stench by spraying room freshener. His next-door neighbor said a foul smell kept emanating from Sane's flat for the past couple of days.

“We have seen that in the recent past, cases like this have increased. we have taken suo moto on this and will write to DG to take care of the case," said National Commission for Women Chairperson Rekha Sharma.

The crime also sparked a war of words between the Opposition and the BJP, a ruling partner in the state. Nationalist Congress Party leader Supriya Sule described the murder as "extremely horrific and outrageous" and alleged that crimes against women were on the rise in the state as criminals have no fear of law.
