Five days after a woman’s body was found in a suitcase near Juhu Beach, another suitcase with a young woman’s body was discovered, this time near the Sandhurst Road railway station early on Tuesday.
Several similarities in the condition of the two bodies have now led investigators to probe the likelihood of a serial killer behind the murders.
According to the police, at 2am on Tuesday, the police received a call from a resident of the building adjoining Sandhurst Road railway station about an unclaimed suitcase at the end of a railway platform. The man said he saw a person keep the bag and leave. The eyewitness told police officers that he initially thought the man may have gone to a nearby toilet but when he did not return for a while, the resident informed the police, suspecting it to be a bomb.
