“On Sunday, Rituraj came down to India unannounced. He reached the Lokhandwala complex in Andheri, where his mother lived, and rang the doorbell at 4.30 pm. But the door was locked from inside. He then summoned a key-maker and a hole was drilled in the door. The latch was opened through this hole. On entering inside, Rituraj found his mother’s skeleton. The body was fully dressed,” a senior police officer said. Asha Sahani’s body was sent to Siddharth Hospital’s post-mortem centre.
