On December 2, Bennett Rebello's leg, a hand and mutilated private part were found in a suitcase in Mumbai's Mahim, Maharashtra. Rebello was a guitarist and played music at local gigs.
On Saturday (December 7), the police arrested two people, including the victim's adopted daughter, for killing the Rebello. They had disposed off body parts, chopped and stuffed in three suitcases, in the river.
Accused 19-year-old Riya (alias) and her 16-year-old boyfriend killed Bennett Rebello on November 27 at his house at Dwarka Kunj, in Mumbai's Vakola with a knife and bamboo stick.
The two accused chopped Bennett Rebello, stuffed the severed body parts in three bags and threw the bags away in Mithi river.
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.
For the next three days, they kept cutting Rebello's body into pieces using hot kitchen knives. They also burnt a lot of incense sticks in the house to cover up the foul smell emanating from the body. They then stuffed the body parts in the bags and disposed them off in Mithi river.
On December 2, the police found a bag. The floating suitcase was spotted with part of a leg sticking out of it at Mahim beach. A hand, part of a leg and mutilated private parts were found in the bag.
The bag containing chopped body parts was found behind Makhdoom Shah Baba Dargah in Mahim at around 6 pm on December 2, the police said.
The police found a hand detached from shoulder, part of a leg and private part of Rebello inside the bag.
The sweater, stitched at a shop in Kurla called ALMO Men's Wear, was the first clue for the police. After reaching the shop, the police found a receipt in the name of Bennett.
Mumbai Police then used this name to carry out further investigation on social media and found him on Facebook.
Rebello was wearing a maroon sweater in one of his pictures which matched the sweater found in the suitcase. These leads confirmed that it was Rebello, the police said.
Rebello's visiting card was found on one of his Facebook posts through which the police reached his house which was locked.
Mumbai Police soon learnt that Rebello had adopted Riya who had a boyfriend. The crime branch is still verifying when Rebello had adopted Riya.
The cops did a sustained interrogation with Riya and her boyfriend who alleged that Rebello had sexually assaulted Riya and opposed their relationship.
