How Mumbai police recreated the crime scene in Jhanvi Kukreja murder case

With help of dummy bodies, sniffer dogs and in presence of two prime accused Shree Jodhankar and Diya Padankar, the crime scene was recreated.

On Saturday, the Mumbai police reconstructed the crime scene in the sensational Jhanvi Kukreja murder case. The case pertains to the brutal killing of a 19-year-old girl, Jhanvi Kukreja, on January 1 in a residential building on 15th Road in Khar, Mumbai.

As per reports, the police had to rely on circumstantial and forensic evidence, in the absence of eyewitness accounts, to further the investigation in the case. On Friday, the police recreated the crime scene with the help of two dummy bodies, sniffer dogs and five forensic experts. During the probe, the two accused, namely, Shree Jodhankar (24) and Diya Padankar (19) were also present. At the same time, the whole process was videotaped on camera.

Using the two dummy bodies, the Mumbai police tried to determine how the body of the victim reached the ground floor from the second floor. According to the police, there were two plausible explanations. Either, the victim was thrown from the second floor or she was dragged by the hair to the ground floor by the two accused. The cops informed that the duo would be interrogated in the upcoming days.

Mumbai police to investigate ‘drug angle’ in the case

The Mumbai Police is also investigating a possible drug angle in the murder case. DCP Abhishek Trimukhe informed, “Crime scene reconstruction was done today by forensic experts. We are also investigating the drugs angle in the matter.” The police suspect that the individuals, who attended the New year’s Eve party, might have consumed drugs. While the cops are awaiting the medical reports of party attendees, they also suspect that a peddler might have supplied drugs to the party.
