Police are investigating the murder of a 23-year-old actress-model, according to reports.

Kritika Chaudhary’s decomposing body was found in her apartment in Mumbai’s Amboli area on Monday night when police broke in after her neighbors complained of a foul smell emanating from it.

A police officer was quoted as saying, “We are investigating. The door was locked from outside. The AC of the room was on so that smell could not come out soon. We believe she was murdered three to four days ago.”

Aspiring to make it big in Bollywood, Chaudhary moved from Haridwar to Mumbai a few years ago and had appeared in various TV shows and movies.

Her body has been sent for autopsy.
