Gujarat man kills pregnant live-in partner, buries body at her father’s farm


The body of the pregnant woman was found 22 kms away from where she lived with the accused at a farmland owned by her father. 
A man was arrested for killing his pregnant live-in partner and burying her body in Gujarat’s Bardoli town.
The body of the pregnant woman was found 22 kms away from where she lived with the accused at a farmland owned by her father.
On November 14, the victim, identified as Rashmi Kataria, dropped off her three-year-old child at her parents’ home and disappeared without a trace.
When she could not be located for several days, her family lodged a complaint with the police and it was revealed that she was five-months pregnant.
The family also said that she had been in a live-in relationship with a man named Chirag Patel for the past five years.
When police questioned Chirag about Rashmi’s disappearance, he confessed to killing her.
He told police he had strangulated her to death and took the body to her father’s farmland. There he dug a pit using a JCB excavator and buried the body to avoid detection.
After the confession, the police searched the plot and recovered the victim’s body and sent it for postmortem.
Meanwhile, Chirag Patel has been arrested by the Gujarat Police.
During further interrogation, he revealed that he had killed his partner because the couple had been having several fights lately.
The police also suspect the role of Chirag’s first wife in the crime, as she had fought with Rashmi a few months ago and severely beaten her up.
The police are investigating if Chirag had other accomplices in the crime as well.
