Headless body of financier found

HYDERABAD OCT. 26. The murder of a financier, Chand Pasha (27), who has been missing from October 21 midnight, was confirmed on Saturday after his head and torso were found at different places on Sanga Reddy-Zaheerabad road.

A resident of Chintal under Jeedimetla police station area, Pasha left home on October 21 midnight after receiving a phone call from a friend. He was not seen since then. On October 22, the Jeedimetla police registered a case of a man missing following a complaint lodged by members of Pasha's family. Two days later, passers-by noticed a decomposed head minus torso lying on the road.

Though the police believed that it was that of the victim, the latter's family members raised doubts on the police version. However, a headless torso was found on the same route at another place the next day confirming Pasha's murder. Preliminary investigations indicated that the murder could be a fall-out of monetary dispute.
