Maharashtra: While many of us were gushing over showered love by our partners on Valentines Day (February 14), yet another deadly brutality among live-in partners came into limelight from Mumbai.

A 27-year-old Harish Shah, son of a diamond-merchant and ex-data analyst, strangulated his live-in partner and hid her body in a bed box in Maharashtra’s Nalasopara.

Sold furnitures to arrange money:

According to Tulinj police, Hardik called a few scrap-dealers home to sell the furniture on Sunday as he was in dire need of money to flee. As he hid the deceased body in a bed box, he didn’t sell that.   

Reports have confirmed that Hardik and Megha had a heated argument which turned ugly, with Hardik allegedly killing Megha in a ‘fit of rage.’ The alleged accused had strangulated his partner with a towel, and hid her body in the bed box.

As per the report published in The Quint, Harish slept on the same bed – beneath which Megha’s body was laid – on the night of the incident.

While Harish was on the run, neighbours complained of foul smell from the rented apartment when police learnt about the incident.

Harish’s arrest:

“As soon as we found the victim’s body, we immediately tracked the accused’s location. The accused went absconding 24 hours before we found the body. We informed the railway protection force and with their help got him arrested from Nagda station in Madhya Pradesh,” senior inspector Shailendra Nagarkar of Tulinj police station, said.
