In a shocking revelation, the husband of missing woman police inspector Ashwini Bidre, Raju Gore said that he was updated by the police that his wife’s body was allegedly chopped using an axe. Ashwini Bidre has been missing for 22 months now and according to the latest development, her body was allegedly chopped by suspended police inspector Abhay Kurundkar who was arrested in the case and its parts were thrown into the Bhayandar creek one day and the torso the next day in April 2016.
Gore said that his wife’s torso was kept in the fridge of Kurundkar before being disposed off and iron boxes were used to dump the body parts in the Bhayandar creek to ensure they did not reach the surface. While talking to The Indian Express, Gore said that his wife’s body was chopped into three parts on April, 2016.
“On that day, he disposed off the head and limbs in iron boxes so that they don’t come up to the surface.The next day he took the help of Mahesh Phalnikar (48), the fourth arrested accused earlier this week, to dispose off the torso. This time too, they dumped the body parts in an iron box,” he said.
The police is now reportedly taking the help of Navy to find these boxes that can help them trace Bidre’s mortal remains. Meanwhile, a senior police officer also confirmed that police will be looking for the body in the Bhayandar creek.
Bidre, an assistant police inspector, was posted with the Human Rights Commission when she had gone missing. Her family suspected that she was kidnapped and approached the police in July.
They also approached the High Court. Suspecting that Kurundkar had an extra-marital affair with Bidre, police started its investigation and made four arrests in the case. After investigating the fourth accused, police added the murder charge.
Phalnikar (48) reportedly confirmed that Bidre had been murdered and her body disposed off in the Bhayandar creek.
