A month after a headless body of a woman was recovered from a garbage bin in Ramapuram in Chennai, investigators have identified it as the body of a small-time film actress, Sasirekha, 32. She was allegedly murdered by her husband, Ramesh, and his girlfriend, Lawkiiyaa Kashiiv, also an actress, police said.
While the body was recovered from a garbage bin on January 5, the head was recovered from a canal near Kolapakkam, about two kilometres away, earlier this week, after Ramesh, 36, and Kashiiv, 22, were arrested from a house in the suburbs. The accused were sent to judicial custody on Friday.
Sasirekha is reported to have played a prominent character role in the yet to be released film, Naalai Mudhal Kudikka Maatein. Kashiiv’s film Karuppasamypuram is also due for release soon.
