A 32-year-old dentist of Indian origin in Australia, who went missing earlier this week, has been murdered and her body was found dumped in a suitcase in her abandoned auto, the police said.
NSW Police told 2GB Radio that Dr Reddy's ex-boyfriend was questioned by detectives before her body was found.
The body of Preethi Reddy was stuffed in a suitcase and was kept in the auto, which was parked roadside. Her family reported that Harsh has been harassing her from some time.
She told them that she would head home after breakfast, and when she failed to return, her family contacted police. The victim hailed from Mahbubnagar district in Telangana.
Dr Reddy worked at Glenbrook Dental Surgery in the Blue Mountains, about 70km west of Sydney.
Dr Reddy had attended a dental convention with fellow dentist Dr Narde at St Leonards in Sydney's north last weekend.
PREETHI Reddy was "a bright light, loveable, kind and protective" her little sister has said in a statement released on behalf of the young dentist's family. After the cops declared tracing the mortal remains of Preethi, Nithya posted on the page, "Our dearest Preethi is no longer with us".
In a media conference on Wednesday, an NSW Police spokesman confirmed that police had spoken to the ex-boyfriend, who has also been identified as a dentist, as part of the missing person investigation before he was killed on Monday. CCTV footage showed her going to a nearby fast food joint on George Street around 2:15 am and then proceeded to her vehicle.More news: Huawei Sues U.S. Over Equipment Ban in Escalating Legal Clash
