Police solve a murder mystery, actor murdered by her husband and his girlfriend. Police claim to have solved the case of a headless body which was found on January 5 in Ramapuram in Chennai. On Friday, the police said that the body was of a small-time film actor Sasirekha.
Sasirekha's body was found in a dustbin. The head of the actor was found from a canal at Kundrathur after the accused gave directions. The accused are her husband, Ramesh and his girlfriend, Lawkiiya Kashiiv who is also an actor. They were arrested from Valasaravakkam.
A police officer told TOI, "When there was no complaint about a missing woman of matching description, we suspected that the murder was the fallout of an affair."
The police team noticed that Sasirkha's phone was switched off for many days after she registered a complaint against her husband. Her family members said that she had gone for film shooting. But the police could not find her at her home in Madipakkam or her husband's house in Valasaravakkam. Her husband's phone was also switched off for many weeks, according to TOI.
The accused were found at a house in Valasaravakkam and admitted to the murder of the actor. According to the police, she was invited to Lawkiyaa's house and Ramesh hit her on her head. He then cut her head with a knife and wrapped her body and head seperately and threw it.
They said that they killed her as she was harassing Ramesh and did not allow him to meet his girlfriend.
