Forced to marry him: Man kills woman & ditches body in Mumbai

Thane: Navi Mumbai Police arrested a taxi driver over the alleged murder of a woman. Police said on Sunday that the 28-year-old taxi driver was arrested after a probe into the woman's death found that he killed her after she forced him to marry her, PTI reported.

Police said that the decomposed body of a 27-year-old woman was found wrapped in a blanket and dumped in a dried-up rivulet at Talekhar along Chirner-Kharpada in the Uran area of Navi Mumbai on April 25 morning.

Uran police station's senior inspector Satish Nikam said police sent the body for postmortem and registered a case against unidentified persons under various Indian Penal Code sections, including 302 (murder)

During the probe on the woman's body, police got information on a woman reported missing from Mankurd police station limits in neighbouring Mumbai on April 18. Police confirmed after verification that the recovered body belonged to the missing woman.

According to police, further probe suggested that the woman was in love with the taxi driver, a resident of Nagpada in Mumbai. The woman was forcing him to marry her, but he refused, which led to a dispute between them.

On April 18 evening, the man picked up the woman from Mankhurd and took her for a drive in his car to Khadavli in the Kalyan area of Thane district. He allegedly killed her at around 1 am on April 19 and threw the body in the rivulet, he said.

Police arrested the accused on Saturday and produced him before a local magistrate. The magistrate remanded in police custody till April 29.
