Mumbai, Oct 24 (IANS) Mumbai police are investigating phone calls and messages on the mobile phone of actor-model Bidushi Dash Barde, who was found murdered in her flat, an official said here Wednesday.
Bidushi was found murdered late Monday night after her husband, Kedar Barde, an IT professional, returned from work.
Officials investigating the case Wednesday said they have taken Bidushi's phone into their custody and have found over 100 missed calls and 200 text messages on her phone the day she died.
They said that they are retrieving her call records to draw a possible breakthrough in the case. The CCTV footage from her residential building is also being viewed to get possible clues.
Bidushi, 23, was a former beauty queen from Chennai. She was found murdered in her Andheri flat in northwest Mumbai, by her husband Kedar. Initially it appeared to be a case of accidental death as her body bore injury marks and broken shards of glass were found around her body.
Following the post-mortem report, Andheri's D.N. Nagar Police Station recorded it as a murder as her body bore injuries by a sharp weapon.
Initially, police suspected that Bidushi collapsed due to diabetes-related complications and suffered fatal injuries after falling on a glass showcase.
Officials also said that they are still interrogating Kedar. However, no other person is yet suspected to be involved in the crime.
Deputy Commissioner of Police Pratap Dighavkar said a case was registered against unidentified persons Tuesday after receipt of the post-mortem reports.
