The gen­eral body of Navi Mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (NMMC) on Wed­nes­day de­manded a thor­ough in­quiry into the death of the 43-year-old NCP cor­po­ra­tor Shashikala Mal­adi.

Mayor Sudhakar Son­awane has as­sured that he will meet the po­lice com­mis­sioner and re­quest for a probe.

Mal­adi was found dead on the rail­way tracks be­tween Mankhurd and Go­vandi on Septem­ber 23, the day she had gone miss­ing from her home in Nerul.

Mal­adi’s body was iden­ti­fied on Oc­to­ber 2 when Vashi GRP in­formed Nerul po­lice about the body in their pos­ses­sion. Mys­tery sur­rounds the al­leged sui­cide of the cor­po­ra­tor who had sud­denly gone miss­ing from her house.

“Mal­adi had been given a ticket by the NCP be­cause she was a go-get­ter,” said house leader JD Su­tar in his con­do­lence speech.

“Mal­adi had won de­spite strong op­po­si­tion from top lead­ers. She was ob­vi­ously not weak­hearted. It is nec­es­sary that her death is probed,” said op­po­si­tion leader Vi­jay Chougule.

Stand­ing com­mit­tee chair­per­son Ne­tra Shirke said that Mal­adi had of­ten spo­ken to her about the prob­lems she had been fac­ing.

Re­spond­ing to the sen­ti­ments of the mem­bers, Son­awane said: “I re­spect the sen­ti­ments and de­mands of the house and hence will take up the de­mand for an in­quiry with the po­lice com­mis­sioner through a re­quest let­ter.”

The house was ad­journed af­ter cor­po­ra­tors of­fered con­do­lences for Mal­adi.
