Accused Manoj Sane

In a shocking incident where an investigation led to an accused Manoj Sane who cut Saraswati Vaidya’s body, his live-in partner into pieces and cooked them in a cooker to dispose of them has been remanded in police custody till June 16. 

56-year-old Sane and 32-year-old Vaidya were living in a rented flat on the 7th floor of Geeta Deep building in the Geetanagar area of Mira Road for the past three years. On Wednesday evening, it was clear that Saraswati was murdered after a stench emanated from the house. Many shocking facts have been revealed in the investigation conducted by the police. 

Circle 1 Deputy Commissioner of Police Jayant Bajbale said that Manoj killed Saraswati in the midnight of June 3 and was dismembering the body for the next four days from the morning of June 4. In the bathroom, he dismembered the body with an electric saw and a saw blade. He was cooking each organ in a cooker to separate the bones and meat before disposal. Police have found numerous body parts in a cooker, 3 pots and 2 buckets. Manoj had also cut the head of the dead body into numerous pieces. All these pieces have been sent to JJ Hospital and only after that it will be clear which organs he disposed of, Bajbale explained.

Normal behaviour after murder
After killing Saraswati, Manoj was living in the house. He was eating both meals outside as he was cooking dead bodies in the kitchen. During this period, the police said that his behaviour was normal, quoting an eyewitness. It is also clear that Manoj has an incurable disease.
