Indian-origin dentist’s body found in Sydney, ex-boyfriend suspect

The dead and mutilated body of a dentist of Indian origin, who had gone missing since Sunday morning from the central business district of Sydney, was found on Tuesday night in a suitcase in her own auto off Sydney's south-east area, reported the Sydney Morning Herald.

The dentist's remains had been stuffed in a suitcase in the boot of her late-model Volkswagen Golf abandoned on a Kingsford street. Her ex-boyfriend, Harsh Narde, who died in a auto crash on the New England Highway on Monday night, a day after Preethi Reddy was reported missing, is the prime suspect in the case.

At about 9.30 on Tuesday night, police found Dr Reddy's body inside her vehicle parked on Strachan Street at Kingsford.

Police officers searched the vehicle after it was found at Strachan Lane. "In this hard time we ask that you respect the family's privacy and refer to the NSW Police Force for further news", her family said in a statement, after the police announced that her body had been found.

The gruesome discovery followed her former boyfriend fatally driving his BMW into a semi-trailer on the New England Highway on Monday night.

The police said they spoke to Narde, aged in his thirties, as part of the missing persons investigation, before his death.

"At this stage we know they met up in Sydney and now we're looking at all the movements between these two", Detective Superintendent Gavin Dengate said. "It's very unusual for her not to contact her family for such a long period of time, and there were no known plans of her to leave her home or Sydney".

Surveillance footage placed Reddy inside a McDonald's restaurant at the Strand Arcade in the CBD at about 2:15 p.m. before she left unaccompanied, heading south on Market Street.

He said investigators were unsure where and when Reddy was slain, but were working on the probability that she was fatally stabbed at the hotel.

"Detectives ... are investigating the circumstances surrounding the collision, which is believed to be a deliberate act", police said in a statement.

She last spoke with her family about 11 that morning, saying she planned to head home after having a late breakfast.

Preethi Reddy was apprehensive about attending the same conference as her ex-boyfriend on Saturday.

A colleague of Dr Reddy and Narde's, who attended the conference, said he last saw the pair chatting animatedly in the hotel lobby following the event.

"She was a strong girl who loved dentistry".

Dr Reddy worked at Glenbrook Dental Surgery in the Blue Mountains, around 70km west of Sydney.

NSW Police described Reddy's disappearance as "out of character" and said there were serious concerns of her welfare.
