On November 13, 2011 the body of two-year-old Jagriti Patel was found in a decomposed state near Electricity Bhuvan at Cuffe Parade.

Two labourers were arrested for raping and killing her.  Yesterday, police found the body of a three-year-old at the same spot.

The girl has been identified as Karishma Vijay Chavan, whose mother works at the Sassoon Docks. "Karishma had gone missing on Tuesday after which her mother lodged a complaint," said a police officer.

"We have found the body of the girl. We can't say right now whether she has been raped or not, but we have sent the body for post-mortem to JJ hospital," said an officer from Cuffe Parade police station.
Cops suspect the girl was strangulated and killed.
