MUM­BAI: A 39-year-old per­fumer was found dead at her Goa res­i­dence on Thurs­day. Monika Ghurde’s naked body was found with her hands and legs tied to a bed at her house at San­golda in North Goa, the po­lice said.

While in­ves­ti­ga­tions are un­der­way, the po­lice sus­pect Ghurde may have been robbed and then sex­u­ally as­saulted or raped and killed the pre­vi­ous night, while she was alone in her first-floor flat in res­i­den­tial com­plex Sapna Raj Val­ley.

The po­lice said there were vis­i­ble marks on her neck and they sus­pect Ghurde was stran­gled.

Ghurde had been liv­ing alone for a year in the three-bed­room house, while her hus­band lived nearby, sources said.

“She was es­tranged from her hus­band and liv­ing alone. She was orig­i­nally from Nag­pur, while her hus­band is from Chennai,” po­lice in­spec­tor Ra­jesh Ku­mar said.
