Bidushi Barde
Mumbai, Oct 25: Though it has been nearly three days since model-turned-actor Bidushi Dash Barde was murdered at her flat in Andheri, police here are yet to get any clues. [Update: Mumbai model murder: Mystery revolves around Unknown Man]

As the 23-year-old former beauty queen received over 100 missed calls and 200 text messages in the hours before she died, investigators are hopeful that the call records will lead them to the killer.

The police yesterday recorded the statement of her husband Kedar who found the body of Bidushi in their flat when he returned from work on the night of Oct 22.

A case of accidental death was recorded initially but the DN Nagar Police revised it to one of murder after the post-mortem report indicated that Bidushi had been killed with a sharp weapon.

Kedar averred that his wife was a diabetic. Investigators therefore thought that she might have fallen on a glass showcase due to complications associated with the disease and in the process sustained fatal injuries.

Glass shards were seen sticking out of her neck, cheek, jaw and chin. According to Kedar, Bidushi often felt giddy and even fainted quite a few times.

Besides, it did not seem like a murder for gain because valuables were not stolen from the flat. Neither was there any sign of forced entry. In fact, Kedar used his own key to get into the flat on the day Bidushi died.

However, one of the neighbours told the police that a man had come to see Bidushi on the afternoon of Oct 22. The building's watchman corroborated the neighbour's version.

Reports say another man had visited Bidushi earlier in the day. The CCTV footage of all visitors to the building could be a great help to the investigators. Till the actual killer is discovered, the police have no option but to book unidentified persons for the crime.
