A 25-year-old Indian man allegedly murdered a woman at his home in Mumbai. The perpetrator, Haridas Nirgude, told the police that the victim was his Facebook friend and he murdered her because she refused to have sex with him. According to Mumbai police, the victim was strangled to death. The police said they aren’t sure if the victim was raped. Only a post-mortem report could confirm that, cops said.

Neighbors found her mangled body outside Nirgude’s flat and called the police. Eye witnesses claim that they saw the victim enter Nirgude’s apartment.

When his house was searched, police found the victim’s mobile phone and her bag.
