Father of a woman software engineer, whose burnt body was found on the outskirts of Mumbai, met Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Friday and demanded justice, saying no parent should have to face the trauma he had to face while searching for his daughter.

"I have apprised the Home Minister about the unfortunate incident. Police did not help us at all. We ourselves looked for my daughter after she went missing. And finally, after ten days, her body was recovered. No parent should face the kind of trauma that I have faced," S J S Prasad, father of Esther Anuhya, told reporters after meeting Shinde.

The 23-year-old woman, who was working for a reputed IT firm in Mumbai, went missing after her arrival at Lokmanya Tilak terminus in the city from her native home of Machilipatnam in Andhra Pradesh on January 5.

Her mutilated, burnt and decomposed body was found off the Mumbai-Thane highway on January 16.

"The Home Minister gave us a patient hearing. He told us that he will help us. He will talk to the Maharashtra government," Prasad said.

Anuhya had boarded the Vishakapatnam-LTT Express train from Vijayawada on January 4 for Mumbai. She was returning to Mumbai after her Christmas holidays but she did not reach her hostel in suburban Andheri.
