By ANI

MUMBAI: Investigation is underway into the sensational double murder case of high profile artist Hema Upadhyay and her lawyer Harish Bhambani whose bodies were found in a drain in Kandivali.

“We received information around 7:30 in the evening yesterday that two dead bodies are lying in a drain, wrapped in plastic looking very suspicious. Our officers went to the spot and verified the bodies,” District Commissioner of Police Vikram Deshmane told the media here.

Asserting that the circumstances indicated clearly that it was a case of murder, the DCP added that a case has been registered with the Kandivali Police station under IPC section 302 and 210 against unknown persons.

“The bodies were identified yesterday as Harish Bhambani who was 65 years old, lived in Matunga and was a lawyer by profession and Hema Upadhyay, 45 years old who was an artist by profession and stayed at Juhu Tara road. We will determine the cause of death once after the post-mortem results come out. But it’s a clear case of murder,” Deshmane said.

He added that marks of injuries on the bodies have been noted further probe will reveal the details of the case.

However, the police has not detained or arrested anyone in the case so far, even though inquiries have been made with various persons.

Earlier in 2013, Bhambani had represented Hema in a case after she filed harassment complaints against her husband Chintan and alleged that he had painted obscene sketches on the walls of her room.
