Press Trust of India  |  Thane 

Following the arrest of a woman in a sex racket case, Palghar rural police today found a human skeleton, suspected to be of her husband, from her house.

The woman allegedly told police during interrogation that she had killed her husband thirteen years ago.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Fatesingh Patil said that police arrested the woman, Sarita Bharti (37) under the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act for running a prostitution racket, and rescued four women on December 4 from her house in Dandipada in Boisar.

During the probe, police learnt that she had killed her husband Sahdeo Bharti 13 years ago, and buried the body in the same house.

When a police team today dug up the floor of the house, they found a skeleton inside a pit.

It was sent to forensic laboratory for examination.

Further probe is on.
