When the police recovered the suitcase they found the man’s leg, a hand and mutilated private part inside.

Accused Kumari Aradhya Jitendra Patil alias Riya (19) and her 16-year-old boyfriend killed Bennett Rebello on November 27 at his house at Dwarka Kunj, in Mumbai’s Vakola, Mahrashtra with a knife and bamboo stick.

The girl and her boyfriend also sprayed a mosquito killer on Bennett Rebello as he was alive even after he was stabbed.

It is but more twisted than that.

The police found that Bennett Rebello had adopted Riya and sexually assaulted her because he did not agree to her relationship with her minor boyfriend.
