The gynaecologist and obstetrician's body was found in a semi-decomposed state. Cops later shifted her body to RN Cooper hospital for a post-mortem. The police suspect Satpute may have died at least 48 hours before they found her. The doctor, who was in her forties, worked as a consultant with several prominent private hospitals in the city.
Bhramadev Yadav, the building's watchman said, "She had moved into the flat about a year ago and was living alone. I had not seen anybody visiting her. Neither was she seen in the building since the last four-five days." A police official said, "An Accidental Death Report (ADR) has been registered in the matter in Amboli police station. We are awaiting the post-mortem report to identify the cause of death."
