Mumbai, Dec 24 (PTI) Six months after a man went missing, two persons have been arrested for his murder, city police said on Thursday.

Ravi Sable, a resident of suburban Jogeshwari, went missing in June this year.

The murder came to light when the police arrested Mubarak Sayyad and Amit Sharma in a theft case, an official said.

They also smashed his face with a stone and dumped the body in a nullah in Jogeshwari area to destroy the evidence, he said.
