Arrested for running a sex racket at home, Farida had allegedly also murdered three people, including her husband. 43-year-old Sarita Bharti was arrested on Monday for allegedly running a prostitution racket from her home.

The woman allegedly killed the husband and dumped his body in the septic tank of her house. Kamlesh and Sarita stoned Sahdev to death after he caught them in a compromised position.

They disposed of his body in a septic tank, which they covered with cement, said assistant inspector Mansinh Patil of Boisar police. The police dug out the skeleton Wednesday and sent it for a post-mortem and DNA tests.

Fattesinh Patil, Sub-Divisional Police Officer, Boisar, said when Sarita was confronted about the allegations, she led the police to the place where her husband's body was buried.

Savita Bharati has two children and, on Thursday, she will be produced before Palghar Court.


The Boisar MIDC police also said that accused Sarita had recently murdered one of her Bengali customers, as he was carrying Rs1 lakh with him. "We are on the hunt for Kamlesh, who is absconding".

Police said Sarita practices black magic and murdered a third person as a human sacrifice.

Sarita told the police that her husband often assaulted her after coming home drunk and suspected her character. "We will also question her son Sandesh, 25, who is a tempo driver in Palghar", the police said. She then told relatives and neighbours that her husband had deserted her. In order to hush up the entire incident, the body was buried inside the septic tank and it was later sealed with cement.

"We will send the skeleton for forensic analysis", Kabadi added.
