Woman bar employee found dead in Malwani house, murder suspected

Malwani Police probing the suspected murder of 29-year-old Parveen Sheikh, found dead in her residence Friday afternoon, said she used to stay alone in the Agra Gully house and work in a beer bar.

"The body was decomposed and it was not possible to discern external injuries. We have sent the body to Bhagwati Hospital for post-mortem and are awaiting report. Based on circumstantial evidence, we have registered a case of murder," said assistant commissioner of police Jaywant Hargude.

Police suspect Praveen was strangled.

"We are checking with neighbours if there were any frequent visitors to her residence. There are no suspects so far," he said.
