In a clear-cut case of murder, a 24-year-old woman’s body was found dead at Hotel Krishna Place in Thaltej on SG Road, Monday morning. The victim has been identified as Rebecca Lalawmpuii, a native of Aizawl in Mizoram. She worked at Millennium Spa near Swastik Crossroads and lived with other women from Mizoram at the spa.
According to inspector Abhishek Dhawan of Bodakdev police, the sleuths have so far been able to piece together that Rebecca entered the hotel late Sunday night with a friend. He has been identified as Nishant Kansara, a resident of Municipal Karmcharinagar near Sattadhar Crossroads in Ghatlodia.
“Around 7:10 am on Monday, a hotel worker noticed the door of Room 303 was wide. On entering, he saw her lying lifeless and immediately called the police control room. A team was rushed to the spot to investigate,” shared Dhawan, adding that prima facie, no injuries were found on her body nor were there any signs of the use of drugs or poisons.
The hotel staff reported that the victim and her friend where “regulars” at the address. The police have initiated a search for Nishant, who remains untraceable.
Meanwhile, a case of accidental death has been registered and the deceased’s family in Aizwal has been informed. The post-mortem report is awaited, added investigating officers.
