PORVORIM: In a shocking and harrowing turn of events, the peaceful neighborhood of Porvorim was rocked by a gruesome murder that unfolded over the past week. Kamakshi, a resident of the third floor in Porvorim, met a tragic and untimely demise at the hands of someone she was in a relationship with for the past 1.5 years, Prakash.
The incident took place on August 30 when Prakash visited Kamakshi’s flat, resulting in a heated argument. What followed was a horrific act of violence that left Kamakshi with up to 34 knife wounds across her body, as revealed by the autopsy report conducted at Goa Medical College (GMC) in Bambolim.
Movie-Inspired Murder Plan Unveiled
In a chilling confession, Prakash, the accused, admitted to meticulously planning Kamakshi’s murder. He claimed to have drawn inspiration from a South Indian movie, “RX 100,” in which he hatched his sinister plan.
According to his confession, Prakash carried out the murder at 9:30 AM, after which he used cleaning supplies, including a bathroom cleaner and a mop, to sanitize the crime scene. He then purchased two plastic bags, one white transparent and one blue, from Mapusa market to conceal Kamakshi’s lifeless body.
An Elaborate Disposal Operation
Prakash’s actions didn’t end with the murder. He meticulously planned the disposal of Kamakshi’s body. He drove to a remote location in his car (registered as GA-03-H-9923) and parked it at a significant distance from his garage in Porvorim market to avoid suspicion.
In an attempt to divert attention, he discarded Kamakshi’s mobile phone in the Anjuna area, where her boyfriend resided. Later that evening, Prakash enlisted the help of his friend, Nirupadi Kadakal, to dispose of Kamakshi’s body. They traveled approximately 80 kilometers to the Amboli Ghat, where her lifeless body was dumped into a 40/50 feet deep valley.
Intensive Search Leads to Discovery
Porvorim Police Inspector Anant Gaonkar led a relentless search operation, alongside Prakash, a full police team, and forensic experts, to locate Kamakshi’s body. After an arduous search, her remains were discovered in Amboli.
The investigation extended to Kamakshi’s flat in Porvorim, where all evidence was meticulously collected by the police.
Both suspects, Prakash and Nirupadi Kadakal, made appearances in the JMFC court last Saturday and were granted remands for ten days. Kamakshi’s family has been entrusted with her remains to perform her last rites, bringing some solace to a community shattered by this horrifying incident.
