Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone 2) Anil Kumbhare said Punita Sukhwani was found murdered at her J K House residence with a wound on her head. “At this moment,it is difficult to say if she was killed after a fatal blow with a heavy object or was stabbed in the head. We are doing a spot panchnama,” said Kumbhare.

He said Sukhwani’s domestic helps were detained as both accused each other for the murder. “We are questioning them. A case of murder has been registered,” said Kumbhare.

An officer from the Gamdevi police station said Sukhwani’s family lives in the same building. The police have also not ruled out robbery as the motive.

“We are recording the statements of the domestic helps. If we find proof of their involvement,we will arrest them. Further investigations are on,” added the officer.
